Harry Styles successfully set the Internet alight this week with his second Rolling Stone cover.

The now-viral topless shoot for the magazine’s September issue arrives amid news that the star is planning his next Hollywood move with the 25-year-old ready to talk, “sex, psychedelics and the secrets of stardom”.

But it’s not the first Rolling Stone cover to get the public talking: the US publication is famed for its A-list models.

From Janet Jackson’s controversial 1993 shoot to Halsey’s empowering message to women, these are some of the most memorable Rolling Stone covers in years gone by.
