Featured Article: Vogue Mexico 2013 Covers Recap


Fashion and beauty photographer Koray Birand—who lives in Istanbul but splits his time between London, Paris and Munich—is branching out to yet another fashion publication this year. Having been a regular for Harper’s Bazaar Turkey since 2010, it looks like that he is now a favourite for Vogue Mexico and Latin America too, with 3 slots this year! He photographed the March, April, and October issues respectively with cover girls Isabeli Fontana, Hana Jirickova, and Princess Salwa Aga Khan aka Kendra Spears.

David Roemer, Nagi Sakai, and Marcin Tyszka also worked more than once for the monthly fashion publication. New Mexico born David Roemer shot the January and November issue with Jacquelyn Jablonski and Behati Prinsloo (both models participated in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show). Tokyo born Cairo raised photographer Nagi Sakai snapped the magazine’s February and June covers with Toni Garrn and Mirte Maas, while Warsaw native Marcin Tyszka also shared the same amount of cover stint as the previously mentioned David Roemer and Nagi Sakai. He shot fellow Polish Anja Rubik and Zuzanna Bijoch on the magazine’s May and July covers.

That leaves us with Mariano Vivanco (Peruvian) who shot Candice Swanepoel for September issue, Alique (Dutch) who snapped fellow Dutch Anna de Rijk for August edition, Ruven Afanador (Colombian) who shot First Lady of Colombia for the magazine’s special cover for the Spanish speaking country, and rising duo Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello (both Argentinian) who photographed actress Scarlett Johansson for December issue.

Featured Article: Vogue Thailand 2013 Covers Recap


Besides Vogue Ukraine, Vogue Thailand is the latest international edition that was launched this year. Just like the Ukrainian version, Thailand Vogue also still trying to find their identity in the first year.

The magazine’s debut cover, shot by the renowned Hans Feurer, is one of the best premiere covers in Vogue history. The image shown model Si Tanwiboon wearing nothing but an intricate gold headpiece made by Philip Treacy. Another homegrown talent gracing the magazine’s cover this year was actress Aum Patcharapa, who posed in front of Tada Varich‘s lens wearing Dior.

The rest of the cover stars are top runway models. From runway veterans like Malgosia Bela, Carolyn Murphy, Naomi Campbell, and Isabeli Fontana, to social media Queens Coco Rocha and Karlie Kloss, to current established names like Liu Wen, Anais Pouliot and Kasia Struss. They posed in front of the lens from top photographers such as David Bellemere (the Russian born snapped 5 slots this year!), Lincoln Pilcher, and Marcin Tyszka.

An interesting note came from Naomi Campbell‘s November cover by Marcin Tyszka. The image sparked controversies when it was released last month because Naomi‘s skin had been heavily airbrushed and made to appear lighter. TFS reached out to Vogue Thailand for comment, and their Editor in Chief, Kullawit Laosuksri, sent back a statement. His remarks:

“The cover shot of Naomi Campbell was taken in Paris by Polish photographer Marcin Tyszka, whose signature style is pastel, with light (natural) soft colours created by using lighting techniques and make-up for his results. In his own words he explains, “Naomi is always super sexy – our idea was to create the Prada ‘60s look – more natural– pastel – sweet – soft.”

It was an incredible opportunity for me to work with such an icon as Naomi Campbell and we were so pleased that she agreed to grace our November cover. We chose Naomi because she represents a strong, intelligent and beautiful woman and we did not enhance or need to enhance her looks in any way.

We at Vogue Thailand believe in the universal beauty of women and I have had a chance to work with so many gorgeous women such as Liu Wen, Carolyn Murphy, and Coco Rocha as our cover models, and to be able to add Naomi into our portfolio is something that I am very proud of.”

The magazine has since released the final version of the cover, which shows the British supermodel with unmistakably darker skin.

What a way to start your first year.
