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.
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.
