Our concerned on Vogue Paris covers last year was their dull and boring grey/white backgrounds, which they applied in most of the issue. This year, they stepped it up a bit with some interesting outdoor settings. Even though they still used the basic colors as the background for half of the edition this year, but the remaining issues which was shot outdoor makes up for it.
First they have actress/model Milla Jovovich who was shot against Manhattan skyline by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. We love the sephia and black combination here. The team then headed to the mountains of Cuzco, Peru, to shot Isabeli Fontana in front of Mario Testino‘s lens, The issue was a special issue promoting Mario Testino‘s beautiful homeland. St. Barts was their next destination, as Mario Sorrenti photographed first-time cover girl Andreea Diaconu wearing nothing but sands all over her body. The last outdoor cover was featuring the ever sexy Edita Vilkeviciute, who wears Balmain in front of the iconic view of French Riviera. Mario Testino also photographed this strikingly vibrant image.
The rest of the covers which was shot against white and grey backdrops were featuring models Suvi Koponen, Freja Beha Erichsen, one of Vogue Paris favourite established cover girls Daria Werbowy, Saskia de Brauw (we love this!), and Gisele Bundchen. The magazine also photographed singer turned prominent fashion designer Victoria Beckham, and her dreamy husband, David Beckham for the last issue of 2013. It’s such a nice surprise to see the power couple channeling Gone With The Wind poster in front of Inez & Vinoodh‘s lens.
Eight out of twelve cover girls of Vogue Spain this year are related to Victoria’s Secret. They got three current Victoria’s Secret Angels, one former Angel, and four models who have walked the sexy annual fashion show.
The sultry Edita Vilkeviciute is one of the magazine’s favourite girls, and she cemented her status by landed yet another cover for the magazine. The 24 year old Lithuanian who walked Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2008, 2009 and 2010 was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier (he also shot Daria Werbowy‘s July cover) for the January issue. Polish topmodel Anja Rubik, who shared the runway with Edita in VSFS 2009 and 2010 (also 2011), graced the magazine’s June issue by Giampaolo Sgura.
Estonian Karmen Pedaru and Puerto Rican Joan Smalls started their VSFS debut in 2011 (Joan also walked in 2012 and 2013), and both landed Vogue Spain covers for August and December issue, shot by Greg Kadel and Karl Lagerfeld respectively.
This year’s Fantasy Bra wearer and Victoria’s Secret Angels, Candice Swanepoel channeled 90s supermodel with easy nonchalant styling on the April issue, shot effortlessly by Mariano Vivanco (he also shot Andreea Diaconu‘s October cover). Fellow VS Angels Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes also made cover appearance on the magazine’s February and September issues, photographed by Alexi Lubomirski and Tom Munro.
British model turned actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who ended her contract for the famous lingerie brand in 2011 due to honoring a work commitment elsewhere, was featured on the important March issue of Vogue Spain. The British girl who starred in Transformers: Dark of The Moon and the current girlfriend of actor Jason Statham was snapped by Michelangelo di Battista. Her future work will be starring in the highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road with Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and fellow model Riley Keough and Abbey Lee Kershaw.
