Vogue Italia 2011 Covers Recap

24 year old Danish top model, Freja Beha Erichsen, landed her third Vogue Italia covers in less than a year! Right after her front page slot in March and November 2010, she was featured for the first 2011 cover of Vogue Italia along with her now rumored girlfriend, Arizona Muse, photographed by regular photographer for more than 20 years, Steven Meisel.

Freja Beha Erichsen was not the only returning cover girl for this year’s models line up, because catwalk veteran Kristen McMenamy (August 2010) and the possible new Angel of Victoria’s Secret’s, Karlie Kloss (January 2010), are both returning for another snapped once again by Steven Meisel for the 2011’s May and December issues respectively.

South African born Victoria’s Secret Angel, Candice Swanepoel, was a bombshell on the February issue while the similar hairstyle was sported by Raquel Zimmermann on the dull August cover, my least favourite. But, thankfully, Steven Meisel make it up Raquel Zimmermann‘s boring cover with the exceptionally amazing November issue. One of this year’s best cover! Saskia de Brauw‘s March issue and the sultry black and white June cover featuring three plus size models who looked gorgeous and fabulous: Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley, are amongst this year’s best covers too.

Red haired model/musician, Karen Elson returning to the front page of Vogue Italia for the first time since December 2006 with the same grace and elegance for October. The former face of Missoni, Kristina Salinovic landed her first Vogue Italia cover for April as well as one of the current faces of Balenciaga, Juliane Grüner, for July issue. Last but not least, top model Stella Tennant shocked the fashion industry with her 13 inch waist (that’s not her real waist, right?) and appeared on the September cover of the magazine photographed by Steven Meisel.

Vogue Brazil 2011 Covers Recap

This year’s Vogue Brazil cover models are stellar and fantastic, but some of the covers are not.

My least favourite cover is September issue featuring gap toothed model Georgia May Jagger by Renam Christofoletti. The orange backdrop was just too much it hurts my eyes. Candice’s Swanepoel‘s October cover snapped by JR Duran came in second. The background looked fake! Such a waste of Candice… I love Raquel Zimmermann, she’s one of the world’s most beautiful women, but her June front page by Henrique Gendre was too plain and white. They should’ve added some colors there.

Gisele Bundchen‘s four covers version on July issue, by Patrick Demarchelier and Jacques Dequeker, are not that impressive. I like the concept but there was a cover that’s blurred. Top model and Victoria’s Secret Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio landed the December cover photographed by Eric Guillemain with actor Rodrigo Santoro. I don’t know maybe it’s the Louis Vuitton dress, the red masthead or the background, but it looked similar to Isabeli Fontana‘s September cover of Vogue Mexico, which is better than Ale‘s.

These covers were ok. I don’t like it that much but I’m not really hate it either: Emanuela de Paula‘s January issue by Jacques Dequeker; Freja Beha Erichsen‘s March issue by Henrique Gendre; Aline Weber‘s April issue by James Macari; and Karolina Kurkova‘s November issue by JR Duran.

And my favourite covers this year from Vogue Brazil are: February issue snapped by Fabio Bartelt featuring Adriana Lima‘s angelic face; August issue with Isabeli Fontana photographed by Jacques Dequeker with the great styling to matched the headline “Glam Tropical”; and my ultimate favourite is… Kate Moss, naked and fabulous, on the May issue snapped by Mario Testino!

What’s your favourite cover this year, guys? 😉

Vogue Spain 2011 Covers Recap

Tom Munro photographed Vogue Spain‘s first 2011 cover featuring supermodel Karolina Kurkova (who landed three more international Vogue covers this year) and I really loved the green and grey combination. He also lensed Katie Holmes in Lanvin for the August front page and three 90s original supermodels (Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Claudia Schiffer), all in Dolce & Gabbana, for September issue.

The second cover slot this year was belong to Constance Jablonski, as she was photographed by Alex Cayley in Dolce & Gabbana‘s lace dress from the Spring Summer 2011 collection. The French beauty also landed three more international Vogue covers, just like the Czech born Karolina.

Polish top model, Anja Rubik was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski for two covers of the March issue along with Jon Kortajarena and Andres Velencoso Segura. The Wimbledon born fashion photographer snapped few more cover job this year for the Yolanda Sacristán edited magazine: Toni Garrn for April, Erin Wasson for June (my favourite) and Toni Garrn (again) with actor Clive Owen for October.

Brazilian top model Isabeli Fontana showed her sexyback lensed by Greg Kadel on the May cover image photographed by Greg Kadel who also lensed fellow top model with sexy back, Malgosia Bela, for July front page.

Vogue Spain closed the year with two great covers featuring one naked Natasha Poly by Inez & Vinoodh for November and Dree Hemingway (and a baby) by Bruce Weber for December.
