W Magazine really blown us away with their amazing set of covers this year. From Mrs. Marcus Mumford, Carey Mulligan, who looks divine on the January cover by Michael Thompson; to Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron (she also graced her second cover this year on August, with her Prometheus co-star Michael Fassbender, by Mario Sorrenti) who looks glamour on the dual covers of February issue also by Mario Sorrenti; and one of the best covers this year featuring Ms. Kate Moss, as an angel and a sinner, photographed stunningly by Steven Klein for the March issue.

While fellow actors Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman was snapped by Emma Summerton for the May issue, promoting Hemingway & Gellhorn. Mega star Tom Cruise looked badass accompanied by top models Edita Vilkeviciute and Abbey Lee Kershaw, and photographed by Mario Sorrenti, for the magazine’s June issue. Just in time for him to let others know that Rock of Ages was released on the same month.
Another well known models who landed the coveted W Magazine slot this year are MTV House of Style hosts, Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss. Their photoshopped version were featured on the July issue, snapped by Steven Meisel. The rest of the cover stars are all bright, talented and gorgeous! September cover girl was Penelope Cruz, by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott; October with Jennifer Lawrence by Tim Walker (great cover star, bad cover image), November with Keira Knightley, Mia Wasikowska, Rooney Mara, and Scarlett Johansson, all snapped by Steven Klein; and last but not least, December with Marion Cotillard by Tim Walker.
Ever since the new editor in chief of Vogue Australia fully take over the magazine for September issue, you can’t help but noticed that they made a history, because Edwina McCann (former EIC of Harper’s Bazaar Australia for the past three years) made a very first subscriber cover version for Vogue.
Fortunately for Edwina McCann (who took over the position from Kirstie Clements who have helmed Vogue Australia for 10 years), her risqué decision was worth it, especially the gorgeous September issue featuring the striking Bella Heathcote, who was shot by Will Davidson and styled by Stevie Dance. The following issues, October and November with Lana Del Rey and top model Catherine McNeill (her third consecutive year appearing on the cover!), also delivered striking images as the covers that was snapped by Nicole Bentley and Benny Horne respectively. The current December cover is a different story. As much as we love the race-winning horse Black Caviar, but there’s something off with the model, Julia Nobis. We wish she could engage a little bit of emotion with her co-star and Benny Horne‘s lens.
The other cover that we love is the February issue featuring Marloes Horst, by Nicole Bentley. It’s summer ready and beautiful. Bentley landed two other cover slots this year for the magazine, July issue with singer Delta Goodrem, and August issue with model Abbey Lee Kershaw. Kai Z Feng being the second photographer who landed the most cover jobs for Vogue Australia after Bentley. He snapped three consecutive covers in a row: March with Karlie Kloss, April with Julia Frauche, and May with the stunning Joan Smalls.
