V Magazine, Joan Smalls, Sean O'Pry

Mario Testino/V Magazine

When it comes to scorching hot magazine covers, V Magazine gets that less is way more.

Joan Smalls covers the latest issue, out July 17, with little more than a strategic posing to cover her bare upper half. Leaning against a skivvy-clad Sean O'Pry, the model pair makes for a red-hot cover couple.

The Model Mania issue features a 46-page spread with eight of the hottest faces (and bodies!) in the business. Shot by Vogue-adored photographer Mario Testino, the "Less Is (In this Case) More" spreads highlight drool-worthy fashion duds from designers Givenchy, Prada, Fendi, Michael Kors, Balmain, Tom Ford, Proenza Schouler, Gucci and Chanel.

But with an abundance of nearly-naked models draped across the fashion spreads, who's paying attention to the clothes?

Among landing high-end magazine covers, the Victoria's Secret Angel boats an impressive modeling career that includes the top spot on models.com Top 50 Models roundup and a number eight slot on Forbe's Highest Paid Models 2013 list.

Plus, she's landed campaigns with Gucci, Fendi and Givenchy not to mention an unforgettable appearance in Beyoncé's "Yonce" video last year.

But back to V Magazine—all in all, we have to agree with the magazine's skillfully titled fashion spread. A topless Smalls is absolutely more.
