Tatler UK 2011 Covers Recap

Compared to last year, Tatler UK covers are less colorfull in 2011 and I like 2010 covers line up better.

This year, the magazine edited by Kate Reardon featured the high profile Middleton Sisters on their covers. The Warhol-esque portrait of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge in the February cover of Tatler UK is way better than her sister cover, Pippa Middleton, for August issue. They made the cover as if Pippa‘s dead. Ugh.

Mischa Barton made a comeback to magazine cover (I think its her only magazine cover this year) with a elegant pose photographed by Robert Erdmann for January. Zara Phillips, the second child and only daughter of Princess Anne and her first husband Captain Mark Phillips, was photographed by Uli Weber for the October cover.

Gossip GirlsChuck Bass, i mean, Ed Westwick was photographed by Michael Roberts for the March issue alongside fellow actress and Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2011 campaign model Felicity Jones. 43 year old Naomi Watts showed her playful side on the April cover playing with foam in a bathtub.

Bruno Barbazan photographed Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova for May issue as a “Easter Bunny” while Robert Erdmann landed another cover job with the June cover featuring young actress Lily Collins, the daughter of British musician Phil Collins and his second wife, Jill Tavelman.

More actresses on the covers of Tatler UK this year are Romola Garai (July), Emily Mortimer (September), the stunning Isabel Lucas (November) and Anna Friel (December)

Vogue Portugal 2011 Covers Recap

Vogue Portugal is one of the magazines who likes to use reprint as their covers. Not that’s anything wrong with it, but unfortunately their reprint covers are too boring for me.

My only favourite this year is Sasha Pivovarova‘s January cover, a reprint from Vogue US November 2010 “Naturally Refined” spread photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.

The magazine celebrated their 100th issue in February with the only non model/celebrity cover which I don’t like at all. They should’ve using another image other than that. A stunning image of Dutch model Melissa Tammerijn by Richard Burbridge from the February 2011 issue of Vogue Russia was used for the March cover. Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier in Boyish Allure editorial that published in the February issue of Vogue China, an image from the ed was reprinted for the April cover.

A reprint from Vogue Nippon April 2011 lensed by Sølve Sundsbø featuring the model who just walked her first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show recenty, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, was used for the May cover. Siri Tollerod graced the June cover photographed by David Roemer, a reprint from her spread in Vogue Mexico March 2011. South African bombshell Candice Swanepoel featured for the July cover that was taken from her editorial shot by Steven Meisel in the February 2011 issue of Vogue Italia.

Cédric Buchet snapped another Victoria’s Secret catwalk first timer, Karmen Pedaru, for Paradis Bleu editorial in the June/July issue of Vogue Paris which was used for the August cover image of Vogue Portugal while Auguste Abeliunaite was photographed by Luis Monteiro for September issue, their first non reprint cover this year and it’s looked kinda US Vogue, no? Hopefully they produce more original cover.

The current face of Pura Lopez, Elena Sudakova was photographed by Bojana Tatarska for October cover. Sara Sampaio, the current face of Blumarine was shot naked by Luis Monteiro for the magazine’s November issue, not a reprint. And that leads us to last cover of 2011, Sophie Vlaming photographed by Raphael Delorme and Tierno Sy.

Well, I can’t say that I’m satisfied with this year’s covers line up but I really do appreciate their efforts to make original covers and hopefully they’ll make even more next year.

Marie Claire UK 2011 Covers Recap

Marie Claire UK started this year with Dannii Minogue in gold Victoria Beckham dress for their January cover. Singer Duffy is smiling on the February cover, her first I suppose, while Nicole Kidman sporting her gorgeous red hair on the March cover.

My favorite cover this year from Marie Claire UK is the April issue featuring Amanda Seyfried in blue tweed dress photographed by Matthias Vriens-McGrath. Mad Men‘s January Jones graced the May issue in Gucci Spring Summer 2011 dress lensed by Guy Aroch. For June
cover, Marie Claire UK chose socialite, model and actress who’s well known because of her appearance in reality television The Hills and The City, Olivia Palermo. The cover is the worst this year IMO.

Academy Award nominee actress, Jennifer Lawrence landed the July cover slot while other Academy Award related actresses Anne Hathaway (nominated for Best Actress in 2009 and hosted the event in 2011), Keira Knightley (nominated for Best Actress in 2006) and Reese Witherspoon (won for Best Actress in 2006) are featured for the
September, October and November covers respectively.

Another actresses on the covers of the Marie O’Riordan edited monthly magazine are Audrey Tautou by Max Cadelli for August and Sarah Jessica Parker by Tesh for December.

Academy Award winning actress, Charlize Theron is landed yet another Vogue US cover. The last time we saw her was on the September 2009 front page of the magazine and now she is featured for the summery themed December cover coming out of the water with slicked back hair and what it looks like a silver lamé dress.

The 36 year old South African born will be playing as The Evil Queen in the next year release of Snow White & The Huntsman along with Kristen Stewart (Snow White) and Chris Hemsworth (The Huntsman).
