Featured Article: Vogue Taiwan 2012 Covers Recap


The problem with Vogue Taiwan‘s covers has always been that terrible bold font. which mostly in white. They should really change the fonts ASAP into something more flattering, elegant and sleeker. The cover images were not bad, but that ridiculous fonts and headlines always spoiled it. Can you imagine the covers with more minimalist headlines? It’ll be way better, non?

Most of their cover stars are returning to get another slot once again in 2012. Kwan Lun Mei, Amber Kuo, Cheryl Yang, Vivian Hsu, Shu Qi, Rainie Yang, and A-Mei Cheung are all landed last year covers, and featured again this year. The rest of the cover stars are Michelle Chen, Hsu Hsi Ti, Jolin Tsai, Chiling Lin and Zhang Rong Rong.

We are not looking forward for Vogue Taiwan‘s 2013 covers line up. Well, at least not until they change their layout and fonts. Click here to read our last year’s recap. And feel free to jump in the comment box below, and tell us your favourite image from the magazine this year (if there’s any).

Featured Article: InStyle US 2012 Covers Recap


Italian photographers Michelangelo di Battista and Giampaolo Sgura shared the spot of the photographer who shot the most covers for InStyle US this year. Both snapped three slots each for the Ariel Foxman monthly edited publication.

Michelangelo di Battista shot the important March and September issue with Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez respectively. He also shot the June cover with the stunning Charlize Theron. Giampaolo Sgura photographed Mrs. Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek (how come her waist was soo tiny!?) for the July issue, Gwyneth Paltrow for October, and Halle Berry for November issue.

Swedish photographer Andreas Sjödin, and Serbian born Dusan Reljin snapped two covers each this year. Jennifer Garner and Drew Barrymore posed in front of Sjödin‘s lens for the magazine’s January and February issue, while Sofia Vergara and Jessica Biel fronting the April and August covers that was shot by Reljin. The last two slots this year was featuring Cameron Diaz who looks lovely on the May cover, by London-based Liz Collins and the elegant Catherine Zeta-Jones for December issue by German photographer Horst Diekgerdes.

Featured Article: Dazed & Confused 2012 Covers Recap


Dazed & Confused‘s covers are really diverse this year, in a good way. They produced some of the most interesting covers in their history.

We love Grimes‘ April issue, in which she was photographed by Hedi Slimane wearing the unmistakable Givenchy Spring Summer 2012 Haute Couture crystal nose ring and matching earrings. We love the crystal encrusted headpiece that artist Theo-Mass Lexileictous wears on the May cover, shot by Walter Pfeiffer. We love the eerie image of actor Noomi Rapace, by Sølve Sundsbø on the June issue. We also love how controversial their September issue was, with Azealia Banks blowing an inflated red condom, shot by Sharif Hamza.

Their October issue with model Joan Smalls and actor Sam Riley was subtly sexy yet seductive. They’re sensually bitting an apple to match the “Temptation” headline, photographed by Sean & Seng. Iris Apfel‘s November cover (in a bright Comme des Garçons voluminous dress) was one of our favourites this year as well. The 91 year old fashion icon looks amazing on the image snapped by Jeff Bark. Even though some people hated it, but their December issue with Angelababy, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and Nicola Formichetti (all four images were photographed by Matt Irwin) was the most fun and playful images they’ve ever published.

The rest of the cover stars this year are actress Rooney Mara, rappers A$AP Rocky and Snoop Dogg, rising models Erjona Ala, Frida Aasen, Kati Nescher, Lara Mullen, and Zenia Sevastyanova.
