To welcome the New Year, magazines brought loads of color, face masks, and dramatic poses to their January issues. Elle Sweden, Vogue, and Interview Germany all dabbled in headgear this month, putting models in floral headdresses and peacock wing-crowns to do everything from lounge around the house to take a casual stroll. Despite chilly temps, this month's models also went tanning in not-so-tropical climates: One woman tried to catch some rays (despite being almost fully clothed) on a solar panel in Elle, while Vogue Spain's version posed with a sun reflector, despite having her exposed butt planted in the snow. Click through our slideshow to see these images and more in our round-up of the best and worst of this month's fashion editorials.
Best Conservation: Numéro Tokyo
This is where they keep Cara when she’s not modeling or posing for selfies with Rihanna.
Most Potentially Painful: Galore
Remind us never to do our walk of shame in the desert in heels and a keyhole bandage dress. Especially next to a cactus #thatlookslikeadick.
Least Zen: Vogue Netherlands
If you're wearing wide-leg, drop-crotch pants on a mountain and no one is there to see, are you even in style?
Most Inexperienced Dog Walker: Harper's Bazaar
Even giant Furbys shouldn’t walk in the middle of the street with their eyes closed.
Most Excited for the Katy Perry-Miley Cyrus Concert: Dazed and Confused
Most Traumatized: Vogue
The dresses say they're going to tea with Miss Havisham; the headgear says they just did something terrible to a peacock.
Best Neighbor: Tatler
Because you know you'd never feed the lemur next door if it came knocking.
Most NSFW: i-D
Photocopied boob pics are probably the original butt selfie. And yet, still not okay!
Least Enviornmentally Friendly: Numéro
Her leggings oddly resemble the oil spill villain from Fern Gully.
Worst Extra-Hand Placement: Vogue Russia
Raise all four hands if you forgot to put on a shirt today.
Most on-Edge: Elle
A solar-panel roof is just not the place to wear wedge-clogs.
Most Resourceful Use of Flowers: Elle Sweden
The answer to having too many bridesmaids for a wedding: human centerpieces.
Most Terrifying Use of Florals: W
This looks like the spawn of a Forever 21 dressing room.
Worst Accessories: Elle Canada
Plus one for the dog, minus one thousand for your grandma's nude cankle socks.
Most Fashionable Muzzle: Numéro
Well, this is one way to keep your New Year's diet on track.
Most 2013: Vogue U.K.
Cara Delevingne! Selfie! Tongue! If only she were eating a cronut.
Worst Burns: Vogue Spain
This poor woman thinks she is immune to both wrinkles and butt frostbite.
Best Brigitte Bardot Reference: Tatler
She looks very happy for someone who forgot to wear her bathing suit to the beach.
Happiest: Interview Germany
Her "I ♥ Colorado" shirt is in the wash.
Worst Time Management: Interview
Don't you hate when you spend all that time painting your face and then realize you forgot to put on a bra?
