Topless Magazine Covers: The Hand Bra Awards

The topless magazine cover has been done before. A lot of people have boobs, and almost everyone has hands, but pulling off a hand bra takes some real panache.

In the past few weeks alone, Shailene Woodley went topless for Interview magazine, Rita Ora went topless for GQ, Agnieszka Radwanska went topless for ESPN magazine, Elle MacPherson went topless for Bazaar, Alyssa Milano went topless for Maxim, and they all had to use their extremities for coverage, but who wore their own hands best?

For the first (and only) time ever, we bring you: The Hand Bra Awards
