This year Anna Wintour gave five cover slots to five first timers and I couldn’t be more happier.
Twilight star, Kristen Stewart landed the honour photographed by Mario Testino in Proenza Schouler for her first Vogue cover, the February issue. Lady Gaga was wearing Haider Ackermann for the March cover also by Mario Testino. Flame haired Rihanna was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for April cover in Chanel while Harry Potter alumni, Emma Watson, sporting slick hair, wine stained lips and wearing Prada infamous pailettes dress for the July issue by Mario Testino. The last first timer this year is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s Rooney Mara, who was wearing Ralph Lauren dragon detailed dress (how suitable!) for November front page image photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, their very first cover job for the magazine.
The seven repeater cover stars are: Natalie Portman by Peter Lindbergh for January; Reese Witherspoon who’s wearing Roland Mouret dress (it’s very suprising because Roland Mouret was a non advertiser for the magazine) also by Peter Lindbergh for May; Penelope Cruz by Mario Testino for June; Sarah Jessica Parker by Mario Testino for August; Kate Moss also by Mario Testino for September; Michelle Williams by Annie Leibovitz for October; and Charlize Theron also by Annie Leibovitz for December issue.
I must say, I liked all the covers from Vogue US this year especially Rihanna, Penelope, Kate, Michelle and Charlize images and I’m really hoping that next year they will not use Sarah Jessica Parker nor Gwyneth Paltrow as their cover stars. Amen. Oh, and could we hope Emma Stone got her first cover next year, Mrs. Wintour?
Yesterday we posted the magazine’s first 2012 front page featuring their oldest cover star, Meryl Streep (62), who was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for her very first Vogue US cover and she really deserved it!

The first cover star in 2011 for InStyle US was a Academy Award winning actress, Gwyneth Paltrow lensed by Michelangelo di Battista. The issue marked the 200th editions of the magazine edited by Ariel Foxman and first published in November 1993.
Michelangelo di Battista also photographed another Academy Award winner, Natalie Portman for February issue while Julianne Moore–who’s also snapped by him–graced the March issue and also related to Oscars because she was nominated four times (in 2003 she was nominated for two different categories).
One of Hollywood’s funniest ladies, Tina Fey, graced the magazine’s annual Color issue lensed by David Slijper. Katie Holmes on the front page of August was also the work of the British born photographer.
One of my favourite covers from InStyle US is the May issue with Kate Hudson by Michelangelo di Battista who’s also snapped Beyoncé for September, Gwen Stefani for November and Eva Longoria for July issue, their very first scented issue, where you can find five rub-and-smell spots in it with the scents of watermelon, grass, suntan lotion, popcorn and ice coffee. Interesting!
Young singer Taylor Swift landed her second InStyle cover in yellow Victoria Beckham for June, photographed by Regan Cameron. Fellow singer, Katy Perry was pretty in pink for the October cover lensed by photographer duo Jenny Cage and Tom Betterton. InStyle US closed their covers line up this year with 37 year old Amy Adams for December who looked very young and flawless lensed by Vincent Peters. Photoshop much?
So, do you have any favourite covers from InStyle US this year, guys?
