From ten covers of Numéro Tokyo this year, seven of them are featured the cover girls posing in front of plain backdrop (we didn’t count Candice Swanepoel‘s shadowy background). They brighten it up with multicolored, ombré, and clashing masthead and fonts. Some of them worked, some doesn’t.
For the cover models, they featured 1 singer turned successful fashion designer (Victoria Beckham), 1 model/TV personality/host (Alexa Chung), 1 former Estée Lauder spokesperson (Hilary Rhoda), 1 rockstar daughter (Georgia May Jagger), 2 current Victoria’s Secret Angels (Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel), 2 models who walked Victoria’s Secret fashion shows (Lily Donaldson and Toni Garrn), and 2 household names in high fashion runways (Lindsey Wixson and Ginta Lapina).
Chilean born photographer Nino Muñoz snapped four covers this year (April, June, November and December), while Alexi Lubomirski (who was born in Wimbledon) and Horst Diekgerdes (born in Germany) photographed two covers each, January/February, September, March, and July/August respectively.
Fashion photographers Eric Guillemain and Angelo Pennetta shot one cover each in 2012 for the magazine. The former worked together with Lindsey Wixson for May cover, while the latter with Alexa Chung for October issue.
Our favourite cover from Numéro Tokyo this year goes to Victoria Beckham‘s March issue by Horst Diekgerdes. The colors are great and her side face shot is stunning.
Which one is your favourite this year, guys?
