I've been playing around with levels, hue, and saturation, and color balance trying to hit on the right combination to recreate that "desaturated" look that some fashion mags like Vogue tend to use, with little success.

Anyone have any tips on the secret to this effect?

I don't know what you mean by a desaturated look on Vogue covers. I always thought they to be level/even with saturation. Do you have a specific cover you are looking at?

Lee,
I think I know the type of "look you're trying to achieve. Here's what I do using PS CS2.

In Hue and Saturation, drag your Saturation setting to -80.
In Shadows/Highlights adjust your highlights to 30%, Color Correction to +80, then your midtones to -22. Then under Filter, choose your surface blur and fade it to 80%. Now, with each of these options you have to play around with it to get "the look" you want. It all depends on your initial image and your personal preferences, but this is what I do. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Eric

After saying it was something I'd seen in Vogue I couldn't actually find an example, so I decided to create a rough amalgamation of what I'm going for, but like I said, it's not quite right:
