Christiane Arp edited magazine, Vogue Germany, gave two extra covers this year. In 2010, the total tally was 14 covers, and they gave better line up this time than last year.
Started with Maryna Linchuk in a beautiful soft pink Chanel dress photographed by Greg Kadel for January issue. And then one of the 2012 Pirelli Calendar models, Milla Jovovich, who graced the black and white February cover lensed by Francesco Carrozzini while the Estée Lauder spokesmodel, Constance Jablonski (last year she landed another important cover slot, the September issue) snapped strikingly by Alexi Lubomirski in Alexander McQueen‘s signature butterflies collection for the March cover.
A bright and summer appropriate cover was photographed by Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer in Turks & Caicos island featuring the short haired American, Britt Maren. The photographer duo from Switzerland also snapped Russian beauty, Natalia Vodianova for the July issue. Top model from Germany and the current face of Maybelline, Julia Stegner, graced her hometown Vogue‘s May issue by Alexi Lubomirski who also photographed three covers of the June issue featuring real life couple: Sasha Knezevic and Anja Rubik; Archie Drury and Karolina Kurkova; and Jamie Mazur with his girlfriend, Alessandra Ambrosio.
Another three different covers for a single edition from Vogue Germany this year was for November issue with model and budding actress, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski for the Fashion, Beauty and Jewelry covers. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer returns as Vogue Germany cover star this year in one of my favourite works from Miles Aldridge, the August issue. Last year, the 41 year old featured for the June front page, naked and pregnant!
Swedish photographer Camilla Akrans only landed one cover slot this year for October featuring Doutzen Kroes with smokey eyes and blunt bangs while England born photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, triumphed this year cover job for Vogue Germany with two striking works on the cover: Iris Strubbeger‘s September issue and Karlie Kloss‘s December issue. I believe his works will be gracing more covers in the future.
So, what’s your favourite cover this year, guys? 🙂
