    Bon Appetit just unveiled their June 2011 issue, and there’s a surprise on the cover—a person instead of food porn! In the mag’s 55-year run, rather than enticing with eats, they opted for the face of actress, author, and foodie Gwyneth Paltrow, who just released her cookbook (My Father’s Daughter, which received mixed reviews due to her peppering of descriptive, flowery anecdotes of a luxurious upbringing throughout the book). Her food-related street cred includes this book, her lifestyle website GOOP (through which she shares recipes from time to time), and a former PBS program with Mario Batali where in she taught the people how one dines in Spain. Despite all of this, we don’t think “food” as soon as her face pops up in a google image search, and we’re wondering if the editor-in-chief Adam Rappaport’s past as a style editor of GQ Magazine has anything to do with her debut. Still, this bold move may change the way we view foodie mags (and the way they appear on the newsstands). Just in case we’re witnessing a moment in print-history, we’ve rounded up eight magazine covers of the past that made major waves.

But for those of you with read
