Vanity Fair started this year with good covers such as the January issue featuring Lady Gaga by Annie Leibovitz, and a trio of Matt Damon, Daniel Craig and George Clooney for February, also by Mrs.Leibovitz. And then they produced the always exciting March issue, which featured top rising names in movie industry such as Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain, photographed with a vintage 1920′s feeling by Mario Testino..
..They falls flat with Julia Roberts on the April issue but then redeemed it with pleasant for the eyes covers in the following months with Julianna Margulies, Claire Danes, Sofia Vergara, Michelle Dockery (May), Marilyn Monroe (June), Kristen Stewart (July), and Alec Baldwin (August).
Vanity Fair sinking into the worst-covers-of-the-year hole with their September, October and November edition respectively that’s featured one paparazzi-like shot of Kate Middleton, one OMG-WTF-is-this image of Katie Holmes, and last but not least, one awfully taken snap of a smirking Daniel Craig, in front of a golden girl’s lady part. The subscriber cover from September issue with Jessica Chastain was quite decent, but it’s such a shame they didn’t used it as the main cover.
Thank God for Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott who shot supermodel Kate Moss to perfection for the magazine’s December issue. We’re really hoping that Vanity Fair would never, ever again producing front pages like those three worst covers this year.

Disney Parks Blog just released the latest campaign images for their 2011 ad campaign honoring the release of the much anticipated Pirates Of The Carribean: On Stranger Tides featuring Johnny Depp and Patti Smith photographed by the renowned Annie Leibovitz.
After their first campaign back in 2007 called “Disney Dream Portraits” (it was our very first post back in 2009!) featuring famous faces like Rachel Weisz, David Beckham, Beyonce, Scarlett Johansson and Gisele Bundchen, the campaign went on hiatus for several years. On early March this year they started the campaign again photographed also by Annie Leibovitz and this time called “Let the Memories Begin” with Oscar winners like Jeff Bridges and Penelope Cruz as the Prince and Belle from the famous Beauty And The Beast. The campaign also featured Queen Latifah as Ursula from The Little Mermaid; Alec Baldwin as Magic Mirror and Olivia Wilde as the Evil Queen-both from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
