The headlines placement on this year’s covers from Harper’s Bazaar Australia are better than 2011 and 2010. It’s mostly one-sided, so it doesn’t quite covering the cover stars. Just like they shown on Taylor Swift‘s April (by Benny Horne) and Kate Moss‘ August issue (the image by Terry Richardson is a perfect example for the use of reprints, same as Gwyneth‘s May cover, also by Richardson). You can also noticed that they used sleeker fonts on the newsstands and very minimal texts (which is great) on the subscribers.
Naomi Watts was the first cover star to graced Bazaar Australia‘s front page in 2012. The British-Australian actress was photographed by Victor Demarchelier, the son of the well-known Patrick, who also snapped top models Jessica Stam for March and Constance Jablonski (she recently left Marilyn and moved to DNA for her New York representation) for September issue. Naomi Watts‘ pal, Nicole Kidman, graced the undoubtedly the best cover from Harper’s Bazaar Australia this year. The 45 year old Academy Award winner was snapped by Will Davidson, together with her lovely daughter, Faith Margaret for the beautiful June/July cover. The Australian born Davidson also photographed fellow Aussie Rose Byrne for the magazine’s October issue slot.
Harper’s Bazaar brighten up their last two issues of 2012 with bright yellow mastheads. The November and December covers featuring actress Emily Blunt, and model Georgia May Jagger, were photographed by Jason Bell and Jason Kibbler respectively. Emily Blunt‘s sultry look clearly outshines Georgia May‘s arched-too-far face, but both subscriber covers were great!
The magazine already released their first 2013 cover, featuring actress and style icon Kate Bosworth, and she looks amazing!
