First of all, we’d like to congratulate Vogue Australia on winning the coveted title of Cover of The Year at the Australian Magazine Awards 2013 for their February issue with Naomi Watts, who was shot beautifully by Will Davidson.
Naomi Watts is not the only non-models who graced the monthly fashion publication, because Edwina McCann also tapped movie director Sofia Coppola (shot by Paul Jasmin), singer turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham (by Boo George), and singer and model Erica Packer who was the second wife of Australia’s eighth richest man, James Packer (by Steven Chee). They graced the magazine’s August, September, and November issue respectively.
Vogue Australia gave the remaining cover slots to models, From runway veterans Carolyn Murphy, Lara Stone and Kate Moss, to the current models of the moment such as Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, and Arizona Muse, to sexy Victoria’s Secret bombshells Candice Swanepoel and Miranda Kerr. They also hired different photographers for different issue. This year, the magazine have used the works of Regan Cameron, Angelo Pennetta, Miguel Reveriego, Arthur Elgort, Victor and Patrick Demarchelier, Benny Horne, and Nathaniel Goldberg on their covers.
Our pick for the best covers from the magazine this year would be Naomi Watts‘s February, Kate Moss‘s July, and Arizona Muse‘s December issue. Despite the fonts inconsistency, Edwina McCann done quite a great work as Editor in Chief, and we are really looking forward to see what she’ll offer in 2014.
