And here we finally present to you, supermodel Gisele Bundchen who is gracing the new print magazine from Net-A-Porter.com. We can’t wait to get our hands on this exciting magazine! The mother of two is photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for the cover with styling works by Alex White.
Thank you Donny Andrian for breaking the news and snapped the below image for us on February 03rd.
British model and Fall Winter 2013 campaign queen Edie Campbell is clearly snatched the title of Vogue Italia‘s current favourite model. She was photographed three times by Steven Meisel on the front pages this year. From the quirky and unusual look on the April issue, to the effortlessly beautiful May cover with runway veteran Karen Elson, to the classic black and white image on the October issue. Franca Sozzani and her long time collaborator Steven Meisel really loves the 5′ 9″ model.
Another favourite this year is American stunner Amanda Murphy, who is also the current fave of Miuccia Prada. The model who landed #18 spot on Models.com prestigious Top 50 list graced Vogue Italia‘s July and August issue respectively. Brazilian powerhouse Gisele Bundchen has been a long time regular cover star for the magazine, and this year she added two more slots to her ever growing cover list. She once again collaborating with Steven Meisel for the June issue, and also featured as one of the many cover subjects for the magazine’s July edition (alongside Tony Ward, Linda Evangelista, Natalia Vodianova, Raquel Zimmermann, RJ King, Dorian Reeves, Peter Marino, John Pearson, Ethan James, Cameron Russell, Frederik Meijnen, Meghan Collison, and Louis Steyaert)
The statuesque Hungarian Vanessa Axente was the Edie Campbell of 2012. She got featured twice on the cover last year, and in 2013 she landed yet another cover (for March issue with promising new male model Gustav Swedberg). This marked her third appearances for the monthly fashion publication in less than a year! Talk about a future established star in the making.
Special note came from Chinese catwalker Fei Fei Sun who’s featured on the January issue. The minimalist cover (also by Meisel) made history because Fei Fei is the first Asian model who landed an only-girl cover slot for Vogue Italia. Congratulations!
This year’s line up is complete as Steven Meisel also photographed top names Naomi Campbell, Doutzen Kroes, Ashleigh Good, and newcomers Anna Ewers, Ophélie Guillermand, Gracie Van Gastel, and Cindy Bruna as cover girls. Which one is your favourite this year?
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.
From 12 issues that was published by Vogue Brazil this year, seven of them were fronted by Brazilian models. They consistently shows their support for homegrown talents, and that’s a good thing, especially these three models who they really love and support: Isabeli Fontana, Adriana Lima, and Gisele Bundchen. Those household names have graced the covers every single year since 2011. But, that observation was only from our recaps archives, perhaps they’ve graced even more.
Curitiba born Isabeli Fontana (30) was featured for the magazine’s September issue, posed in front of Jacques Dequeker lens together with American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Ben Harper, while the longest serving Victoria’s Secret Angel (since 2000) Adriana Lima, who was born in Salvador, Bahia 32 years ago, was photographed by Giampaolo Sgura for October issue. Gisele Bundchen (born in Três de Maio in 1980) landed two cover slots this year. The sexy mother of two worked with the renowned Mario Testino for June issue, and Giampaolo Sgura for December issue.
Another well known Brazilian models on their covers this year were Izabel Goulart for February (by Giampaolo Sgura), Alessandra Ambrosio for March (by Caroline Trentini‘s husband Fabio Bartelt), and last but not least Aline Weber for April (by Jacques Dequeker).
Top models like Joan Smalls, Magdalena Frackowiak, Mirte Maas, Bette Franke, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Naomi Campbell, Kate Upton, Lindsey Wixson, and Karlie Kloss also featured for the magazine front pages this year. Which one is your favourite?
