Italian photographers Michelangelo di Battista and Giampaolo Sgura shared the spot of the photographer who shot the most covers for InStyle US this year. Both snapped three slots each for the Ariel Foxman monthly edited publication.
Michelangelo di Battista shot the important March and September issue with Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez respectively. He also shot the June cover with the stunning Charlize Theron. Giampaolo Sgura photographed Mrs. Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek (how come her waist was soo tiny!?) for the July issue, Gwyneth Paltrow for October, and Halle Berry for November issue.
Swedish photographer Andreas Sjödin, and Serbian born Dusan Reljin snapped two covers each this year. Jennifer Garner and Drew Barrymore posed in front of Sjödin‘s lens for the magazine’s January and February issue, while Sofia Vergara and Jessica Biel fronting the April and August covers that was shot by Reljin. The last two slots this year was featuring Cameron Diaz who looks lovely on the May cover, by London-based Liz Collins and the elegant Catherine Zeta-Jones for December issue by German photographer Horst Diekgerdes.

Vanity Fair started this year with good covers such as the January issue featuring Lady Gaga by Annie Leibovitz, and a trio of Matt Damon, Daniel Craig and George Clooney for February, also by Mrs.Leibovitz. And then they produced the always exciting March issue, which featured top rising names in movie industry such as Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain, photographed with a vintage 1920′s feeling by Mario Testino..
..They falls flat with Julia Roberts on the April issue but then redeemed it with pleasant for the eyes covers in the following months with Julianna Margulies, Claire Danes, Sofia Vergara, Michelle Dockery (May), Marilyn Monroe (June), Kristen Stewart (July), and Alec Baldwin (August).
Vanity Fair sinking into the worst-covers-of-the-year hole with their September, October and November edition respectively that’s featured one paparazzi-like shot of Kate Middleton, one OMG-WTF-is-this image of Katie Holmes, and last but not least, one awfully taken snap of a smirking Daniel Craig, in front of a golden girl’s lady part. The subscriber cover from September issue with Jessica Chastain was quite decent, but it’s such a shame they didn’t used it as the main cover.
Thank God for Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott who shot supermodel Kate Moss to perfection for the magazine’s December issue. We’re really hoping that Vanity Fair would never, ever again producing front pages like those three worst covers this year.

If we had to choose which our favourite covers from this year’s 18 selection from Glamour UK, we have to say that we like Kelly Brook‘s second cover version (in which she’s “hugging” herself), Kylie Minogue‘s teal-colored cover, and Emma Watson‘s sitting-pretty cover.
The other cover images are not that bad but, as usual, Glamour UK always ruining the images with text overload. If only they reduced the text on the front pages, the other covers featuring Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Brown Findlay, Dannii Minogue and Kate Beckinsale would’ve been our favourite as well.
The other cover stars from this year’s line up including the current judge of X Factor, Tulisa Contostavlos; the multi-talented woman Jennifer Lopez; The Saturdays‘ band member Frankie Sandford; actor Eva Longoria; TV and radio presenter Fearne Cotton, Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, and singer Cheryl Cole (this is her third consecutive covers since 2010).
