Featured Article: InStyle UK 2013 Covers Recap


InStyle UK really stepping up their covers this year. Even though they still use their signature soft pale mastheads and headlines, but the cover star choice, the styling and the pose were perfect!

They started with Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain who looks amazing in cropped top and fiery hair posing in front of Micaela Rossato‘s lens for February issue. New York based Rossato (who was born in Cordoba, Argentina) also photographed two other cover slots with Rebecca Hall and Naomi Watts, which we love.

We also love the following covers featuring model Agyness Deyn (by Rankin), Taylor Swift (by Karen Collins), Zoe Saldana (by Damon Heath), and Kate Bosworth (by Cedric Buchet). The rest of the cover stars this year are singer Cheryl Cole (by David Vasiljevic), and three brilliant actresses: Chloë Grace Moretz, Drew Barrymore, and Julianne Moore who were snapped by Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello, Michelangelo di Battista, and Giampaolo Sgura respectively.

The only glitch was on the first issue of 2013. The worst cover of the year, or even in their history, goes to Gwyneth Paltrow’s January issue by Giampaolo Sgura. See the image here, and you’ll see what we are talking about. Worst photoshop, ever!

Featured Article: Marie Claire UK 2013 Covers Recap


As always, Marie Claire UK mixed their covers line up with reprints and their own photoshoots. For example, they’ve got Gwen Stefani, Emma Watson, Keira Knightly, Diane Kruger, Zooey Deschanel, and Scarlett Johansson from the reprint section. They manage to pick the best images from the original publication and use it for their own advantages. Gwen Stefani and Scarlett Johansson images were our favourite from the bunch.

The rest of the covers were not bad either. From actresses Megan Fox, Mila Kunis, Gemma Arterton, and Lena Dunham (rumour has it that she will have an upcoming Vogue US cover), to singer Alicia Keys and Jessie J. Marie Claire UK used celebrities to sell the magazine and we are not complaining as long as they keep producing good covers which suits their demographic perfectly.
