We got plenty of favourite covers from W Magazine this year. From Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain‘s artsy selection for January issue and Emma Stone sexy candid for February, to Katy Perry‘s ravishingly minimalist November cover and George Clooney‘s surprisingly good polkadot fever for December. W Magazine hired talented and well known photographers and artists such as Chantal Joffe, George Condo, Mickalene Thomas, Rineke Dijkstra, Juergen Teller, Mario Sorrenti, and Emma Summerton to snapped some of our favourite covers mentioned above.
Another favourite this year would be the remarkable three covers of March issue featuring three world renowned catwalkers Kate Moss, Natalia Vodianova, and Lara Stone, that were photographed stunningly seductive by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The casting, the colors, and the sensual vibe captivates our senses and we just love all of them!
British model Cara Delevingne is another model who landed the cover slot for the Stefano Tonchi-edited magazine this year. The 21 year old was also photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for the important September issue, which was released around her birthday. Talk about a perfect gift for the IT model of the moment.
Brit Marling, Edie Redmayne, Tilda Swinton, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lopez, Léa Seydoux,and Chloë Grace Moretz completed the star-studded list of the magazine 2013 cover subjects. They worked together with top photographers Alasdair McLellan, Tim Walker, Michael Thompson, Mario Sorrenti, and Craig McDean for the magazine’s April, May, June/July, August, and October issues respectively.
First of all, we’d like to congratulate Vogue Australia on winning the coveted title of Cover of The Year at the Australian Magazine Awards 2013 for their February issue with Naomi Watts, who was shot beautifully by Will Davidson.
Naomi Watts is not the only non-models who graced the monthly fashion publication, because Edwina McCann also tapped movie director Sofia Coppola (shot by Paul Jasmin), singer turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham (by Boo George), and singer and model Erica Packer who was the second wife of Australia’s eighth richest man, James Packer (by Steven Chee). They graced the magazine’s August, September, and November issue respectively.
Vogue Australia gave the remaining cover slots to models, From runway veterans Carolyn Murphy, Lara Stone and Kate Moss, to the current models of the moment such as Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, and Arizona Muse, to sexy Victoria’s Secret bombshells Candice Swanepoel and Miranda Kerr. They also hired different photographers for different issue. This year, the magazine have used the works of Regan Cameron, Angelo Pennetta, Miguel Reveriego, Arthur Elgort, Victor and Patrick Demarchelier, Benny Horne, and Nathaniel Goldberg on their covers.
Our pick for the best covers from the magazine this year would be Naomi Watts‘s February, Kate Moss‘s July, and Arizona Muse‘s December issue. Despite the fonts inconsistency, Edwina McCann done quite a great work as Editor in Chief, and we are really looking forward to see what she’ll offer in 2014.
Aah, Alexandra Shulman and her obsession to Kate Moss. The British supermodel landed at least a cover consistently almost every year since her debut in March 1993. In the past four years, she has landed sixth covers and twice this year alone (June and December). Those covers rounding up Kate‘s total of 34th time as cover girl for the magazine. Kate Moss even joined the magazine as Contributing Fashion Editor with her first story due to feature in the upcoming Spring issue. Hopefully Alexandra Shulman will feature other supermodels than Kate Moss like Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington or perhaps she should take a risk and tap new crop of model such as Sam Rollinson.
Other than that, we are extremely happy that she gave more cover slots to models. From first timers Kate Upton, Cara Delevigne, Edie Campbell, Kati Nescher, to returning cover girls Freja Beha Erichsen and Daria Werbowy. Hopefully this trend will continue next year!
The rest of the cover stars are Beyoncé (first time cover girl for the mag) by Arthur Elgort, Helena Bonham Carter by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Alexa Chung by Patrick Demarchelier, and our fave Claire Danes by Nathaniel Goldberg. Which one is your fave, guys?
