What's the greatest album cover of all time? Billboard went to work putting together their take on the 100 best album covers.

Here are the top five:

5. Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin
4. The Notorious B.I.G., Ready to Die
3. Patti Smith, Horses
2. The Beatles, Abbey Road
1. The Velvet Underground and Nico, The Velvet Underground and Nico

The Andy Warhol-designed album cover for The Velvet Underground and Nico features a yellow banana and the words "peel slowly and see." The best part — the banana is actually a sticker, and people can peel it off to reveal a pink banana underneath.

Other covers featured are from artists like Beyoncé, Lil’ Kim, Carole King and Missy Elliott.

Dua Lipa is working on her third studio album, which is said to have more of a psychedelic sound, according to a profile in New York Times Magazine. While the album will still be pop, she's said to be working with Tame Impala's Kevin Parker.

Plus, Taylor Swift announced 1989 (Taylor's Version) which is set to drop October 27.


The September issue of Vogue is upon us. The biggest issue of the year, the September issue helps to set the trends and themes in the world of fashion.

Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington — a.k.a., the best to ever do it — are featured on this year's September cover. American Vogue and British Vogue will share the cover.

Plus, Vogue World will kick off London Fashion Week on September 14, with a red carpet, performances and runway shows at Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

André Leon Talley, the late fashion editor who spent time at Vogue and Vanity Fair, will have his collection of couture, furniture, art and more put to auction at STAIR Galleries in New York.

In beauty: Lady Gaga's Haus Labs is set to release a concealer on September 7. This complements their medium-coverage foundation. Plus, Glossier is releasing their Stretch Fluid Foundation on August 22.
