Featured Article: GQ UK 2013 Covers Recap

Before we start the recap, we’d like to express out concern to GQ UK: They should never make another cover with a tacky fire thingy like their July issue with Andy Murray. Ever. We loathe it so much.

In 2013, GQ UK has five covers fronted by beautiful females: Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain who showed her inner vixen in front of Ellen von Unwerth‘s lens, the cool singer Rita Ora, the ever sexy Rihanna (her snake hair was art directed by the acclaimed artist Damian Hirst), and the lovely actress Emma Watson who landed two cover slots (May and October).

The rest of the cover subjects this year were males: politician Boris Johnson, actors Idris Elba, Bradley Cooper, Henry Cavill, Russell Brand, Michael Douglas and James Franco, fashion designer and movie director Tom Ford, band Arctic Monkeys, and last but not least five members of the sensational boyband, One Direction.

The cover line up is quite ok, with majority of first timers on the front pages. They also celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Our fave are Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Arctic Monkeys, and Rihanna. We are looking forward for next year’s and happy anniversary GQ UK!

Tell us your fave in the comment box below.
