    Vogue, like any good publication, has changed a lot with the times. These days, it's mostly celebrities and the occasional mega-model on the cover, and we're not complaining! We loved its signature glossy take on Emma Stone, and Lady Gaga looks incredible on the September cover. Heck, we even like it when the mag makes tennis balls.

Hit the slideshow to see the top five babes who've all made the cover more than 15 times, then check out the full top-10 list. Do you wish Vogue would put the focus back on models, or do you like the more diverse mix of stars they have going now?
