Featured Article: Vogue Mexico 2013 Covers Recap


Fashion and beauty photographer Koray Birand—who lives in Istanbul but splits his time between London, Paris and Munich—is branching out to yet another fashion publication this year. Having been a regular for Harper’s Bazaar Turkey since 2010, it looks like that he is now a favourite for Vogue Mexico and Latin America too, with 3 slots this year! He photographed the March, April, and October issues respectively with cover girls Isabeli Fontana, Hana Jirickova, and Princess Salwa Aga Khan aka Kendra Spears.

David Roemer, Nagi Sakai, and Marcin Tyszka also worked more than once for the monthly fashion publication. New Mexico born David Roemer shot the January and November issue with Jacquelyn Jablonski and Behati Prinsloo (both models participated in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show). Tokyo born Cairo raised photographer Nagi Sakai snapped the magazine’s February and June covers with Toni Garrn and Mirte Maas, while Warsaw native Marcin Tyszka also shared the same amount of cover stint as the previously mentioned David Roemer and Nagi Sakai. He shot fellow Polish Anja Rubik and Zuzanna Bijoch on the magazine’s May and July covers.

That leaves us with Mariano Vivanco (Peruvian) who shot Candice Swanepoel for September issue, Alique (Dutch) who snapped fellow Dutch Anna de Rijk for August edition, Ruven Afanador (Colombian) who shot First Lady of Colombia for the magazine’s special cover for the Spanish speaking country, and rising duo Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello (both Argentinian) who photographed actress Scarlett Johansson for December issue.

Featured Article: Flare 2013 Covers Recap


What happened to Flare!? Eversince they had this major makeover earlier this year, their covers are being less attractive. As you can see in the image above, they even got several different type of fonts which gave us the impression that they still haven’t found the perfect one.

Our favourite this year are Lea Michele‘s January issue by Max Abadian, Olivia Munn‘s July issue by Autumn De Wilde (eventhough the masthead looks like British GQ, but the striking image makes up for it), and Flare‘s fave model Arlenis Sosa on their August issue shot by Jason Kim.

The rest of the covers this year that doesn’t impressed us were featuring singer Paulina Gretzky (who?), model and Maybelline spokesperson Charlotte Free, host and writer Alexa Chung, and actresses such as Diane Kruger, Christina Hendricks, Greta Gerwig, Amber Heard, Kerry Washington, and Kristen Bell.

Flare used to be one of those fashion magazines who delivers great covers line up, especially in the past three years. They better figure out how to make striking covers again, very soon!

Featured Article: Tatler UK 2012 Covers Recap


Tatler UK really loves red masthead. Every year, they used at least four issues with the particular color, just like 2010 and 2011.

This year marks the second consecutive year of Duchess of Cambridge appearance on the front page. Kate Middleton was featured on the February issue this year and unfortunately, the Chris Jackson photographed image is one of our least favourites from the magazine’s 2012 line up.
The other one is Edie Campbell‘s March cover by Luis Monteiro. The posed was nice, but if only they used different background color, the cover should’ve been more flattering.

There are four images that caught our attention this year. Supermodel Christy Turlington posed in front of Arthur Elgort lens with a cute mustache for May; fellow supermodel Cindy Crawford looking tan-tastic on the September issue by Ruven Afanador; Prince Harry of Wales looking handsome photographed by Tim Rooke on the November cover (his ex, Florence Brudenell Bruce, is gracing the January issue); and model/actor Clara Paget doing some weird pose on the December cover by Phil Ponyter.

The rest of this year’s line up from Tatler UK are featuring actress and the wife of Lord Frederick Windsor, Sophie Winkleman (by Robert Erdmann), a cute puppy with a crown–celebrating The Queen‘s Diamond Jubilee, actress Andrea Riseborough (by Rankin), actress Alice Eve (by Ruven Afanador), and TV host Cat Deeley (also by Ruven Afanador).

Viola Davis for Los Angeles Times Magazine February 2012


Academy Award nominated actress, Viola Davis is almost recognizable with that ultra short hair on the latest cover of Los Angeles Times Magazine!
