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.
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.
