Aah, Alexandra Shulman and her obsession to Kate Moss. The British supermodel landed at least a cover consistently almost every year since her debut in March 1993. In the past four years, she has landed sixth covers and twice this year alone (June and December). Those covers rounding up Kate‘s total of 34th time as cover girl for the magazine. Kate Moss even joined the magazine as Contributing Fashion Editor with her first story due to feature in the upcoming Spring issue. Hopefully Alexandra Shulman will feature other supermodels than Kate Moss like Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington or perhaps she should take a risk and tap new crop of model such as Sam Rollinson.
Other than that, we are extremely happy that she gave more cover slots to models. From first timers Kate Upton, Cara Delevigne, Edie Campbell, Kati Nescher, to returning cover girls Freja Beha Erichsen and Daria Werbowy. Hopefully this trend will continue next year!
The rest of the cover stars are Beyoncé (first time cover girl for the mag) by Arthur Elgort, Helena Bonham Carter by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Alexa Chung by Patrick Demarchelier, and our fave Claire Danes by Nathaniel Goldberg. Which one is your fave, guys?
Cosmopolitan hired new Editor in Chief last September and it brings quite a refreshing look on the covers. Joanna Coles (previously at Marie Claire) tapped quite a number of first timers on the magazine’s line up this year.
She picked Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen to front the January issue, American dancer and actress Julianne Hough for February, the controversial singer Miley Cyrus who landed not one, but two slots (March and December!), Colombian actress Sofia Vergara for June, British singer and TV personality Kelly Osbourne on July, Bulgarian born actress Nina Dobrev for September, and lastly Australian model Miranda Kerr for November. Our fave would be Carly Rae, Julianne, Sofia and Miley‘s December issue.
We are noticing that their headlines were more streamlined and in rather similar fonts towards the end of the year. Unlike the rest of the covers where they used more than 2 different fonts, which in our opinion is better suited for the mag. Could this trend continue in 2014? Let’s see next month.
Y’all know her as Kat von D. (source)
