These slideshows get very cumbersome, so I decided to stop in 2010, figuring the last decade’s worth of covers won’t hold as many surprises. There is so much in here to discuss, also, including a truly bizarre Nine cover and a photo of Cate Blanchett that will make you screech — but then this gorgeous one of Cybill, some Cindys and Claudias, and a surprise Britney to boot.
