From Alexa Chung to Kate Moss: the most unrecognisable celebrity cover stars

We love magazines. Nay, we're OBSESSED with them. So much so, that we have to run past our newsagent for fear of spending our monthly wage on the glossies.

But why, we hear you ask, do we love them so much? There are so many reasons, but we love the way they look, the way they feel and all the pretty pictures and words in them. However, the ones that really get to us, are those that make us do a double-take.

Instead of our eyes lazily taking in the image of a beautified celebrity, easily recognised, we get to see the star as we've never seen them before.

Take a look at some of the most dramatic celebrity cover star looks below.
