After previously giving just a sneak peek, LOVE has debuted all eight of its "Super Natural" covers, featuring an array of ethereal models and actresses in tears.

46-year-old original supermodel Kristen McMenamy, Mariacarla Boscono, Daphne Groeneveld and Lara Stone sat for Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, as well as Nyasha Matonhodze, who previously appeared on a preview cover for this sixth issue of the magazine.

Rounding out the tearful bunch are the barely pubescent faces of Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld.

Why all the tears? LOVE editor Katie Grand writes in the Editor's Letter that the inspiration for the ocver was a search for innocence. Of the child actress trifecta, Grand explains:

"...We were fascinated by that lack of inhibition and the power that freedom from self-consciousness can bring. Normally such qualities are at their strongest in the young, which is how we arrived at putting three youthful actresses on our cover - the three, we think, who are most likely to remain level-headed amid all the inevitable success which awaits them in their future careers."

As for the rest of the eclectic bunch?

"It was this search for innocence which prompted us to call in five of our favourite models and strip them of all cosmetic contrivance, their faces untouched except for their own tears, following the Romantics' belief that beauty is truth and truth, beauty."

So who does the best beautiful sad face -- Babyface Hailee? Covergirl Lara? Newcomer Nyasha?

Take a look below and pick your fave.
