The cover looks great… from the distance. Gotta wait for an HQ image before deciding final judgement.

Editors shake up also hit Marie Claire US! Anne Fulenwider, formerly at Brides since October 2011, named as the new Editor in Chief of the magazine earlier this September, and replacing Joanna Coles who moved to Cosmopolitan (she helmed MC for the last six years). Fulenwider is back to Marie Claire because she had served as an executive editor under Coles for two years starting in September 2009. There are not much changed on the cover ever since Fulenwider helmed it. Next year, perhaps?
Anyway, Marie Claire US tapped top celebrities as this year’s cover stars. Starting with Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie who fronted the January issue, by Alexei Hay. They also listed singer and The Voice mentor, Christina Aguilera as the magazine’s February cover star. She was photographed by Tesh, who also shot seven (!) other front pages this year. The British photographer snapped the April, May, June, August, September, November and December issue featuring Leighton Meester, Zooey Deschanel, Jessica Alba, Kristen Wiig, Miley Cyrus (our favourite), Ashley Greene, and Jessica Chastain respectively. The rest of the celebrities who graced the magazine this year are Eva Mendes (March) and Blake Lively (July), both by Txema Yeste and Gwen Stefani (October), by Peggy Sirota.

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.

We were totally excited when first read the news that raven haired Jessica Chastain gonna covering the latest issue of Marie Claire US, but after seeing the result (Tesh snapped it), we are disappointed. They should’ve made the December cover better.. way better than this.
