Vogue Germany is one of the best Vogue editions who delivers great covers, in our opinion. They always tapped top models, and famous celebrities as the cover stars. This year, they presented unexpected cover subjects with Karl Lagerfeld‘s infamous feline Choupette, who’s gracing their July issue (together with supermodel Linda Evangelista), and the legendary singer Tina Turner who was their April cover star! Both of the covers were photographed by Kaiser Karl and Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer respectively. We love how Tina still looking fierce and fabulous at 74. And we believe that she’s the oldest living person to ever graced the cover of Vogue.
Vogue Germany continues to working together with some of their past cover models such as Doutzen Kroes, Kati Nescher (she landed two slots this year!), Saskia de Brauw, Anja Rubik, Julia Stegner and Constance Jablonski. The models posed in front of the lens from renowned fashion photographers Daniel Jackson, Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi, Claudia Knopfel and Stefan Indlekofer, Giampaolo Sgura and Alexi Lubomirski.
The editors also give Karmen Pedaru, Vanessa Axente, and Edie Campbell their first cover slot for Vogue Germany. The established fashion models graced the June, October, and November issues respectively. Those images were shot by Alexi Lubomirski, Luigi and Daniele + Iango, and Daniel Jackson.
Last but not least, Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman, and Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain were the remaining celebrities who landed the front pages of the monthly fashion publication this year. The 46 year old Mrs.Keith Urban collaborates with two powerhouse photographers, Patrick Demarchelier and Camilla Akrans, for the August issue, while fellow redhead Jessica Chastain (36) was shot by Bruce Weber for the magazine’s first issue in 2013.

2013 is yet another strong year for Vogue Turkey. We love most of their covers this year. From Poppy Delevingne‘s soft January issue by Alvaro Beamud Cortes, to Karmen Pedaru‘s eerily creepy big grin on December cover, shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu. Here’s hoping that 2014 will be yet another great year for them.
Some of our favourites from them are the February issue with Catherine McNeil, in Lanvin, photographed by Miguel Reveriego; Anja Rubik and her mile-long neck on the April issue; and Mariacarla Boscono‘s triumphant returns on magazine cover, shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu.
The magazine collaborated with photographers Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello, Sebastian Faena, KT Auleta, Cedric Buchet, and Serge Leblon for the remaining covers. They photographed top models and famous personalities such as Patricia Van Der Vliet, Milla Jovovich, Karlie Kloss, Bette Franke, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Toni Garrn, and Lou Doillon for Vogue Turkey‘s March, May, June, July, August, September, and November issues respectively.
With bleached eyebrows and big grin, she looks kinda creepy here. Anyway, the cover was photographed by Cuneyt Akeroglu. (source)
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.

We love how Vogue Russia always experimenting with different types of photography on their covers. Some might worked, some might not. But nonetheless, they always featured top models on their covers line up.
Victoria Davydova tapped homegrown models Natasha Poly (she landed the cover consistently every single year since 2007!), Sasha Pivovarova, and Daria Strokous as the 2013 cover girls. She also featured famous personality Dasha Zhukova who’s a Russian socialite, celebutante, philanthropist, entrepreneur, fashion designer and the editor-in-chief of bi-annual art and fashion magazine GARAGE.
Natasha Poly‘s minimalist image was shot by Patrick Demarchelier, while Sasha‘s red punk September issue was shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. Dasha Zhukova‘s cover was great, but too similar with some of the covers made by Interview magazine, and eventhough the layering on Daria Strokous was heavy, but we kinda liked it.
Some of top names in fashion photography have presented their signature shots for the magazine this year. From Hedi Slimane‘s black and white image on Lara Stone (the Creative Director of Saint Laurent also shot Suvi Riggs‘ March issue, eventhough not in his signature B&W), Paolo Roversi‘s sophisticated color tone on Saskia de Brauw, to Vincent Peters clean cinematic shot on Maryna Linchuk.
Some other well known photographers who worked with the monthly fashion publications this year were Richard Bush who shot Joan Smalls for April and Anja Rubik for July; Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer for August issue with Karmen Pedaru; and last but not least Willy Vanderperre who photographed Daria Werbowy (with mullet hair) for October issue.
