Vogue US 2010 Covers Recap

The Notebook stars Rachel McAdams graced her first Vogue US cover in January 2010 wearing Dolce & Gabbana photographed by Mario Testino. He also photographed Jessica Biel for February cover where the actress looking gorgeous wearing Denim and the funny woman, Tina Fey first Vogue cover for March.

Mario Testino continues to collaborates his with Vogue US with the whooping 5 covers in a row !! Sarah Jessica Parker‘s May, Blake Lively summery June (my favourite!), beautiful Marion Cotillard for July, Gwyneth Paltrow Vogue cover #3526 for August (LOL!!) and Halle Berry historical September cover. Until the end of the year he added 2 more covers (10 in total !!!) : Anne Hathaway for November in Oscar De La Renta (another favourite!!) and the different December cover (the cover looked so UK Vogue) where he lensed the beautiful Angelina Jolie.

There are only 2 covers where Anna Wintour doesn’t used Mario Testino : April cover, The Body Issue which Patrick Demarchelier lensed Gisele Bundchen with her fabulous body after gave birth to Baby Benjamin and October cover with Carey Mulligan wearing Chanel (her first Vogue cover) shot by Peter Lindbergh (good to have him back to Vogue!).

I’m quite happy with this year’s covers because some of the cover girls are having their moment. It was their first time at Vogue cover!!! And they looked fabulous and gorgeous !!!

W 2010 Covers Recap

Jennifer Garner wearing Dior orange dress for W January 2010, she looked fresh! (there’s still photoshop i think). Rihanna in white Gucci was February cover girl. Megan Fox wearing blue Giorgio Armani for March. All were photographed by Craig McDean.

Steven Klein photographed Gerald Butler and Jennifer Aniston (she’s wearing Lanvin shoes) for April cover where the two promoting their movie, The Bounty Hunter. Julianna Margulies photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg wearing red Dolce & Gabbana animal print dress showing the awkward split on her dress for May cover. Cate Blanchett photographed by Craig McDean for June is one of my favourite cover from W this year. She looked ethereal in the image. The famous Miu Miu dress first appeared on W July cover. Eva Mendes wore it and lensed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The dress goes a long way ever since.

August 2010 was Stefano Tonchi‘s first W cover since he moved to the magazine in March. He chose Rebecca Hall and her co-star in The Town, Jon Hamm as they both photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg. Tonchi chose 8 rising movie stars for his first September issue, all of them photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. It was also remarked the first full issue edited by Tonchi. New logo, new layout, new W.

Blue Valentine‘s star Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling posed together for W October cover as they lensed by Inez & Vinoodh. While Kim Kardashian posed naked for November cover for it’s Art Issue shot by Mark Seliger. Katherine Heigl and her adopted daughter, Naleigh are the December cover stars of W with Patrick Demarchelier as photographer. It’s more like family portrait than a cover.

Im not quite a fan of the last 2 months covers of W, maybe because the cover featured less color (it’s still a great images though) but Stefano Tonchi took risk with his decisions at W. I salute him for that.

23 cover stars, 7 photographers, 6 white background covers, 4 dark background covers and 2 outdoors covers.

Harper’s Bazaar US 2010 Covers Recap

Looks like Harper’s Bazaar US tried different types of covers this year.

Blue background : Kate Hudson‘s January by Peter Lindbergh, Miley Cyrus‘s February by Peter Lindbergh and Demi Moore‘s April by Mark Seliger.

Terry Richardson-esque : The famed photographer photographed Cameron Diaz for August and Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks for November.

Close up : Kate Moss by Peter Lindbergh for March.

Vogue-ish : Katherine Heigl for June/July by Alexi Lubomirski

White background : Gwyneth Paltrow‘s May by Alexi Lubomirski and Jennifer Aniston‘s September by Mark Seliger.

Festive background : Drew Barrymore gold background for October by Mark Seliger and Katy Perry silver background by Alexi Lubomirski for December (click here for Katy‘s special limited edition subscriber cover).

Alexi Lubomirski, Mark Seliger and Peter Lindbergh each shot 3 covers this year. While Terry Richardson shot 2 covers.

From their 11 covers, 8 of them featured big “FASHION” stamped on the headlines. Of course we already knew that Harper’s Bazaar is a fashion magazine :))

None of the newsstands cover is my favourite, because the covers are not selling and not attractive to me. Maybe it’s their signature cover, but i think they need to make the cover much more attractive if they want to sell more issues… I gotta admit, i loved their fashion spreads even better than their covers. And my favourite goes to the black and white subscriber cover of November featuring Georgia May Jagger by Hedi Slimane.
