Jess Hart simmers on the cover of Harper’s BAZAAR ‘White Hot’ issue; while Kylie Minogue flirts up a storm with the Stenmark twins on GQ Australia, and a naked and heavily pregnant Megan Gale glows on the cover of marie claire.

On The Australian Women’s Weekly a barefooted Princess Mary sits cross-legged on the floor (a royal coup as it was the first Australian shoot in nine years), while Anna Bligh is shot in darkness, head covered with a black scarf, behind the coverline “Anna’s Horribilis” on the cover of The Weekend Australian Magazine. These are just some of the images that are fighting it out to win the Best Magazine Cover in their respective categories, plus the coveted Magazine Cover of the Year Award in this year’s 2014 consumer awards, The Maggies.
