Flare 2011 Covers Recap

Flare covers are getting better and better in my opinion. The colors, the styling, the outdoor settings and the fonts are just great. I also love their last year‘s line up.

They started this year with models trio in jeans top and black pants snapped by Max Abadian: Irina Lazareanu, Tiiu Kuik and Arlenis Sosa Pena. The beautiful February cover was photographed by Chris Nicholls featuring Nina Dobrev in a bed of roses à la the infamous scene in American Beauty.

Canadian top model Heather Marks graced the March cover in embellished dress from Emilio Pucci while fellow top model from the same country, Jessica Stam wearing lace dress from Vionnet for the September issue. Both covers are photographed by the Iranian born Montreal based photographer, Max Abadian.

You may not really remember which movies that Michelle Monaghan already starred in, but one thing for sure: she looked absolutely stunning in April cover image photographed by Tony Duran in bright Max Mara bodysuit. For May issue, the magazine featured the recently divorced Zooey Deschanel in Prada stripes lensed also by Tony Duran while for June cover, it’s time for Academy Award nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence in gem colored Gucci dress. If only Max Abadian shot it outdoor, it would’ve been better.

The similar case happens to Kirsten Dunst‘s November issue in which she’s wearing a bright colored peplum dress from Giambattista Valli and Freida Pinto‘s October front page also in Giambattista Valli. Both covers by Max Abadian are good, but it could’ve been better.

Max Abadian continues his cover domination this year with Ashley Greene‘s December issue (in beautiful red Marchesa dress) while Tony Duran and Chris Nicholls photographed Mila Kunis in Lanvin for August and Elisha Cuthbert in Hervé Léger by Max Azria for July respectively.

I’m really looking forward to see next year’s covers.
