Chinese top catwalker, Ming Xi, is the first 2012 cover girl of Vogue China. The image snapped by Li Qi marks Ming Xi‘s third Vogue China cover in just 6 months! They must have really loved her.
More homegrown models and celebrities are also featured on the covers this year i.e actress Vicki Zhao for February by Kai Z Feng (our least favourite image from the line up); actress Fan Bing Bing for two different covers of April by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin; Liu Wen–who shares the slot with fellow model Monika Jagaciak–for July by Patrick Demarchelier; rising models Tian Yi, Xiao Wen Ju and Liu Wen (this is her third consecutive September issue covers for the magazine!) for September issue also by Inez & Vinoodh; and last but not least, actress Li Bing Bing for their anniversary issue, photographed by Chen Man.
The rest of the line up are featuring some of the top and established names in modelling industry. Isabeli Fontana and Natasha Poly wears Prada pleats dresses on the March cover, by Inez & Vinoodh. Natasha Poly also landed her second cover for Vogue China this year for November, in front of Willy Vanderperre‘s lens wearing Dolce & Gabbana. Arizona Muse wears Lanvin for May issue, shot by Josh Olins. Doutzen Kroes, in Chanel swimsuit, posed for Sølve Sundsbø on the June issue.

Giampaolo Sgura is really gaining lots of attention this year. Besides shooting editorials that published in various major fashion publication, the Italian photographer also shot his second Dolce & Gabbana campaign this year. He also photographed four covers for Vogue Japan this particular year: January issue with Maryna Linchuk; March issue with Dolce‘s campaign star, Bianca Balti; August issue with Anja Rubik; and December cover with Kendra Spears.
Dutch duo, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin snapped two covers for Vogue Japan this year, with two Darias: Werbowy for July and Strokous for October (that Comme des Garçons dress really grabbing the attention).
The rest of the front page slot this year were given to huge names in photography, such as Sølve Sundsbø for February issue with Saskia de Brauw (we love the soft color palette), Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for April issue with Kate Moss (one of the year’s worst cover, really), Terry Richardson for June issue with Candice Swanepoel, rising duo Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi for May with Natasha Poly, Mikael Jansson for September issue with Karlie Kloss (our favourite!), and Patrick Demarchelier for November issue with Aymeline Valade.
