10 issues. 12 covers. Half of the 2011 covers of Harper’s Bazaar Australia are “lying down” poses.
From the Giuliano Bekor photographed image of Jessica Alba beside a vibrant colored pool for January/February issue to the December cover (on sale November 14th) featuring the winner of the latest cycle of Australia’s Next Top Model, 18 year old Montana Cox, in bed of flowers and red sultry lips.
The gorgeous red haired Nicole Kidman looked lovely for the March cover lensed by Alexi Lubomirski. A really good reprint cover. Three bright young actresses from Down Under, Abbie Cornish, Alice Englert (daughter of Academy Award winning director, Jane Campion) and Rachael Taylor are featured for three different April covers of the magazine.
The always stunning Cate Blanchett landed the black, white and gold cover of May issue while Art‘s favourite model, Bambi Northwood-Blyth (and the hand of male model Jack Vanderhart) was photographed naked by Lachlan Bailey for the June/July front image of the magazine.
The 21 year old with her signature eyebrows landed two cover slots last year. Could she landed another one next year?
A bright fuschia chiffon dress from Gucci Fall Winter 2011 was the choice of Harper’s Bazaar Australia team to be worn by 19 year old top model Karlie Kloss who was photographed for the September cover by Patrick Demarchelier‘s son, Victor. Usually I don’t like Alexa Chung covers, but this one by Angelo Pennetta for their October issue is quite lovely. Her cover for next month’s edition of Teen Vogue is really nice as well.
Last but not least,Simon Lekias photographed 28 year old Miranda Kerr in Mary Katrantzou Fall Winter 2011 structured skirt for November front page, one of my 2011 favourites. The mother of one is back from her maternity leave and landed the honour to wearing the $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra in this year’s Victoria Secret Fashion Show in November.
Overall, the 2011 covers of Harper’s Bazaar Australia are better than last year’s. The new font and outdoor photographed covers are really worked this time. Looking forward for 2012 covers!
