Dazed & Confused‘s covers are really diverse this year, in a good way. They produced some of the most interesting covers in their history.
We love Grimes‘ April issue, in which she was photographed by Hedi Slimane wearing the unmistakable Givenchy Spring Summer 2012 Haute Couture crystal nose ring and matching earrings. We love the crystal encrusted headpiece that artist Theo-Mass Lexileictous wears on the May cover, shot by Walter Pfeiffer. We love the eerie image of actor Noomi Rapace, by Sølve Sundsbø on the June issue. We also love how controversial their September issue was, with Azealia Banks blowing an inflated red condom, shot by Sharif Hamza.
Their October issue with model Joan Smalls and actor Sam Riley was subtly sexy yet seductive. They’re sensually bitting an apple to match the “Temptation” headline, photographed by Sean & Seng. Iris Apfel‘s November cover (in a bright Comme des Garçons voluminous dress) was one of our favourites this year as well. The 91 year old fashion icon looks amazing on the image snapped by Jeff Bark. Even though some people hated it, but their December issue with Angelababy, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and Nicola Formichetti (all four images were photographed by Matt Irwin) was the most fun and playful images they’ve ever published.
The rest of the cover stars this year are actress Rooney Mara, rappers A$AP Rocky and Snoop Dogg, rising models Erjona Ala, Frida Aasen, Kati Nescher, Lara Mullen, and Zenia Sevastyanova.

If only Vogue Taiwan change the horrible bold font, be more experimenting with backgrounds/outdoor settings and working things out with the cover layout, I think their front page line up could be better.
My only favourite this year is Takeshi Kaneshiro‘s October cover, the one where he sat down on a luxurious colored sofa. The text are minimum and that’s the kind of cover I’d like to see more coming from this Rosalie Huang edited magazine.
Shu Qi‘s March cover would’ve been another favourite if only the “spring break” headline not as boring as that. Ugh, I really hate that kind of font on a magazine cover.
The rest of the cover stars are: Taiwanese actresses Kwan Lun Mei for January, Amber Kuo for April, Cheryl Yang for May, Janine Chang for June, Zhou Xun for July, Vivian Hsu for August, Rainie Yang for November (she’s also a singer and host), Angelababy for December; singer Amei Chang for September; and anchor Hou Peicen for February.
To be honest, Vogue Taiwan is the weakest link in international Vogue covers and I’m really hoping they will work on that ASAP.
Do you have any favourite cover this year, guys?
