Featured Article: Vogue US 2013 Covers Recap


In 2013, Vogue US had a quite good year, cover wise.

Anna Wintour finally gave the cover slot for the much deserving celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain (both were photographed by Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz respectively). Anna also gave buxom model Kate Upton her first ever Vogue US front page spot. Lots of people hated the news when they first heard about the rumor, but the result was suprisingly good. She wears Dolce & Gabbana on the cover that was shot by Mario Testino. Now we just have to wait and see if the rumour of Girls‘ creator and leading lady, Lena Dunham lands the upcoming cover of the magazine true or not.

Peruvian Mario Testino is one of Anna‘s favourite photographers, and this year the 59 year old photographed two more covers other than Jen-Law and Kate Upton. He shot The Great Gatsby actress Carey Mulligan and two-time cover star (in a lovely chartreuse Oscar De La Renta dress) for May, and Academy Award winning actress Kate Winslet for November issue.

Mario Testino is not the only one who repeats the cover stint for the monthly fashion bible, because 64 year old American Annie Leibovitz also shot several covers besides our favourite Jessica Chastain‘s December issue. She photographed the January issue with Gwen Stefani in Saint Laurent, April with Michelle Obama in Reed Krakoff (another favourite!), July with Katy Perry in Rodarte, and August with Claire Danes in Burberry Prorsum.

Fashion photographers David Sims (born in UK), Patrick Demarchelier (French), and Peter Lindbergh (German) shot the rest of the cover slots this year with Rooney Mara, Beyoncé, and Sandra Bullock respectively.

Featured Article: Harper’s Bazaar Australia 2013 Covers Recap


Actress Kate Bosworth was the first cover star for Harper’s Bazaar Australia this year. The 30 year old American was photographed by Steven Chee. Australian based Chee also photographed fellow actress Cate Blanchett on a black backdrop for the magazine’s May issue. We love both images by him.

Similar image where the sexy Scarlett Johansson posed in front of black background was also the magazine cover for September issue, but this was shot by Karl Lagerfeld with styling works by Carine Roitfeld. She also styled yet another minimalist cover featuring Lara Stone, shot by Kacper Kasprzyk, for March (click here to view 14 other covers by well known designers for the magazine’s anniversary issue!). Both of the images were taken from Carine‘s editorial that was published in Harper’s Bazaar internationally.

Former Miss Universe 2004 and the host of the recent season of Australia’s Next Top Model (she’s recently renewed her AusNTM hosting stint for another season), Jennifer Hawkins landed the February cover slot, shot by Simon Lekias. Mr.Lekias also photographed the December issue with homegrown actress, Nicole Kidman who has been featured on the cover consistently for the past three years. The winner of AusNTM, Melissa Juratowitch is featured on the November cover, as her winning prize. The 16 year old wears Tom Ford Fall Winter 2013 on the image that was snapped by Simon Upton (Upton also photographed Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for October issue).

The rest of the cover stars are actress Drew Barrymore by Daniel Jackson, model Ash Walker by Georges Antoni, model and actress Elle Macpherson by singer turned photographer Bryan Adams.
