Not to be outdone by their younger counterparts, The Wanted also grace the cover of Britain’s biggest glossy, Fabulous. Max George, Jay McGuiness, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes all pull out their sharpest suits for the publication and give the boys of One Direction a run for their money.
While the 1D lads had six collectible covers (one group and five solo) for their turn as model coverboys, the “Glad You Came” singers only have two. Not sure why they weren’t given the same courtesy as One Direction. I guess Fabulous thinks Simon Cowell’s boys are more “fabulous”. I couldn’t resist 😉
Even though I enjoy One Direction’s music more (what can I say, I’m a teen girl at heart), I like The Wanted’s Fabulous cover more. While I enjoy the simplicity of the black and white artistic direction of 1D’s issue, I’m really drawn to the colorful backdrop of The Wanted’s. Plus they have a better tagline. “Crazy Sexy Cool” (Holla TLC) is way better than 1D’s “Growing Pains” (Boo Kirk Cameron). Check out both covers below.

Even though The Wanted boys didn’t get their own collectible cover, they did score an individual shot found in the issue. The British glossy has been slowly releasing the solo pics this week. I’ll be updating this post as they become available.
