Our concerned on Vogue Paris covers last year was their dull and boring grey/white backgrounds, which they applied in most of the issue. This year, they stepped it up a bit with some interesting outdoor settings. Even though they still used the basic colors as the background for half of the edition this year, but the remaining issues which was shot outdoor makes up for it.
First they have actress/model Milla Jovovich who was shot against Manhattan skyline by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. We love the sephia and black combination here. The team then headed to the mountains of Cuzco, Peru, to shot Isabeli Fontana in front of Mario Testino‘s lens, The issue was a special issue promoting Mario Testino‘s beautiful homeland. St. Barts was their next destination, as Mario Sorrenti photographed first-time cover girl Andreea Diaconu wearing nothing but sands all over her body. The last outdoor cover was featuring the ever sexy Edita Vilkeviciute, who wears Balmain in front of the iconic view of French Riviera. Mario Testino also photographed this strikingly vibrant image.
The rest of the covers which was shot against white and grey backdrops were featuring models Suvi Koponen, Freja Beha Erichsen, one of Vogue Paris favourite established cover girls Daria Werbowy, Saskia de Brauw (we love this!), and Gisele Bundchen. The magazine also photographed singer turned prominent fashion designer Victoria Beckham, and her dreamy husband, David Beckham for the last issue of 2013. It’s such a nice surprise to see the power couple channeling Gone With The Wind poster in front of Inez & Vinoodh‘s lens.
