THIS POST IS A STICKY (BECAUSE IT’S A BIG DEAL). KEEP SCROLLING FOR NEWER POSTS.

UPDATE: SEE ALL THREE COLLECTIBLE COVERS HERE AT EW.COM. YOU CAN ORDER THE SET HERE.

UPDATE #2: Check out MORE PHOTOS from the shoot at EW.com.

UPDATE #3: Thanks to EW for passing along a bigger version of the cover! View in Gallery.

Thanks to the eagle-eyed @epnebelle in NYC, we have our first look at Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder on the cover of the February 17th edition of Entertainment Weekly. And yes, it is absolutely real. Details are scant as of right now, but we expect EW will have more soon now that the cat’s out of the bag, including a nice clean version of the cover. The cover implies there will be three different versions available (we’re speculating possibly one of the three, one of Nina and Ian and one of Paul and Nina, but that’s just speculation) and should be hitting newsstands any day now. Watch this space for more details as we get them!

UPDATE: Entertainment Weekly has posted ALL THREE special covers – and holy crap, y’all. As we speculated, the other two covers are Ian/Nina and Nina/Paul. They’ve also posted a teaser of the feature article.

This week’s EW cover story also features interviews with Vampire‘s stars — Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley — who talk about keeping the love triangle red-hot, where they fall in the Stelena-Delena shipper wars, and all rumors swirling around their real-life relationships.

In the meantime, VIEW THE COVER HERE. If that link is down, try here.

HUGE congrats to the cast/crew of Vampire Diaries!

    well it took some doing but this is another missed opportunity to show Paul’s sexy chest!

  • dman

    “…sounds like you were pouting” Ha! Maybe a little. But I was just pointing out the obvious lack of attention other cast members get. I think they’re doing a disservice to fans of other characters by keeping them out of these shoots and promoting the “big three” as the only ones that are important to the show. I think you’re wrong in suggesting that only sporadic men watch the show. Many more men watch the show, it’s just that women are much more vocal about it. I agree with you about the Photoshopping. There’s too much of that stuff going around. I prefer more natural photography. I don’t understand why people feel the need to Photoshop everything. Too many pictures look artificial because of it.

    hehehehe and I also made closer cropped versions to expand the yumminess!

  • http://twitter.com/car24girl Joan Sandberg

  • http://twitter.com/car24girl Joan Sandberg

    Is it on newstands?  I may need to go out in the snow and buy it right now!

  • dman

    I wouldn’t mind that! Kat, Nina and Candice in some pretty sexy outfits, couldn’t get any better. Sorry Paul and Ian, no men allowed. Go flex your muscles somewhere else. Ha!

  • http://twitter.com/car24girl Joan Sandberg

    The more I look at it the more I think Paul is ready to sink those natural fangs of his right into here neck – he is staring rather intently at her neck……..

    Vee – can I just say how cute I thought it was that you have posted above – “this is a sticky – (Because its a big deal)” – Heck yeah it is!!! :)

  • http://twitter.com/car24girl Joan Sandberg

    I would so love to be the filling in that sandwich!

  • http://mylikes.com/carolinedeluna Caroline DL

    i bought it online… but i will be available on newstands this friday…

  • http://mylikes.com/carolinedeluna Caroline DL

    typo. *it

  • Jenna

    Yes, about time… and Damon got a haircut, looking good!!! That hipbone shot is just too sexy!!!

  • http://twitter.com/mirage14 jenna horan

    anyone else find it VERY interesting that the Nina/Ian cover is marked as the 1st of the 3 covers? hmmmm … 

  • Mairead

    I saw this at work, and temporarily lost all powers of speech.

    I’m home now, and planning to camp out by my mailbox until my issue arrives.

    Wow…

  • Mairead

     they’d have to pay EW for these pictures.  They’ll use their own publicity pics. 

    But these are better. Much, much better.

  • Leina

    I agree, Damon should keep his hair like that! I do not know why his hair in magazines always look better than his hair on the show..

  • http://mylikes.com/carolinedeluna Caroline DL

     i did

  • Mairead

     I wonder if it’s more comfortable or weird to do this kind of shot when you’re dating in real life.  On the one hand- high comfort level. On the other…your parents now have pictures of you in bed with your boyfriend.  LOL

    Regardless…freaking fantastic pictures.

  • http://vampire-diaries.net/ ishallforeverchoosedelena

    Ian is so freaking sexy!!! He’s so amazing! Paul’s kind of sexy too.. I guess. Lol! I wish I took Nina’s place! Ian killed this photoshoot! He broke the lenses! I wish I could marry him!

  • Mairead

    AND LOL on the “shippers…TV’s weirdest fans.”  Definitely the right cover photo for THAT story.

  • night magic

    Still elegant and classy without being too over the top

  • http://twitter.com/mirage14 jenna horan

    I totally get their want for privacy, but dude, it’s so obvious. You are together. The connection is undeniable.

  • Anonymous

     Yes VampLover1973, they do look absolutely perfect together.  ;)

  • Anonymous

     I agree, the writers have to go there. They cannot throw this photo shoot out there and do nothing with it.  They have to give the fans the romance between Damon and Elena to finally make the love triangle believable.

  • Smoulderhalder

    Haha I just read it as “Why the cult hit is hotter than True Blood”
    They ALL look s-s-sexy! Now, if we can just squeeze in Elijah!!! ;)

  • Mairead
  • http://twitter.com/meftihe Meftihe Phoenix

    holy moly

  • mary.m155

    I wouldnt go that far the TrueBlood shoot with no clothes and all blood was unbeatable.

    But TVD is a different show and I love it for different reasons

  • VD_lover

    omg the covers and exclusive pics are so hot!!!!

  • Louisa

    Wow this just take my breath away :0

  • Louisa

    nina is the luckiest actress in the world. i want to be her

  • Anonymous

     I thought the True Blood photo shoot last year was gross.  All three being completely naked with blood all over them was hardly hot or sexy.   This photo shoot for the Vampire Diaries is very sexual and sensual without the total nudity.

    I agree with VampLover1973, this TVD photo shoot puts the True Blood- Rolling Stone Cover to shame.

  • Anonymous

    These pictures made me gasp!  They prove that partial nudity is more exciting than complete nakedness because you keep thinking about what’s under those sheets.  The photos are so hot and so intimate and because I feel like I know Nina, Paul and Ian I’m embarrassed to look at them – NOT!

  • Jgarza

    OMG!!!!!!…I just saw it and it’s super H-O-T!!!!!!….oh man, the Delena one is soooooo….I can’t even think straight now or even type right!!!!…..the Stelena is also sooooo sexy looking…damn!!!!

  • http://mylikes.com/carolinedeluna Caroline DL

    you’re absolutely right…

  • Jgarza

    Don’t hate…..lol…..cuz’ I agree!!!!

  • Jgarza

    hey….we’re happy what we see, can’t complain about that!!!!….still sweating!!!!!…felt like i’m getting my early menopaus or something!!!

  • Jgarza

    Holy smuckkkkk!!!!!!….this is one hottttt cover magazine I’ve ever seen in history!!!!!….my brain suddenly went frozen!!!!….love it!!!!

  • Jenna

    Who do they refer to us as TV’s weirdest fans? What’s that all about?
    Why because… ummm, we’re a little obsessed? lol!!!

  • Mairead

     they are referring to “shippers” in general, not to TVD fans specifically.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E5S2Y7H2HJE3A5JXS6UBPX26CY Shannon

    Nina sweetie, if you could just drop the sheet, and move to left, i’d REALLY appreciate it….REALLY!!!!

  • mary.m155

    Its just a different taste.

  • Jgarza

    I’ll be very happy going to work everyday without a doubt knowing that I get to play with hot boys (boyfriend)…..gosh, I love her job!!!!

  • Jgarza

    I agree!!!!!

  • Jgarza

    Well…Paul is sexy, too…equally!!!!

  • Jgarza

    At least she’s 23, right????….not under age.

  • Jgarza

    I have never been in love with a couples before until I watched this show….Ian & Nina looks soooo gorgeous and compelling!!!
