Featured Article: Vogue Paris 2013 Covers Recap


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.

Featured Article: Elle UK 2012 Covers Recap

It seems like Elle UK‘s cover budget is decreasing this year because almost every single cover shot was taken at studio. But who knows, even if it’s taken at studio, perhaps it was located far away from Elle UK‘s HQ. And only God knows the total amount of money they’ve paid to book those major cover stars this year. The budget probably increased instead of decreased.

This year, the Lorraine Candy-edited monthly fashion magazine (Jenny Dickinson helmed the magazine for a brief moment while Mrs.Candy had her pregnancy leave) had two cover shots outdoor, featuring Kristen Stewart and David Beckham respectively. Beckham‘s covers easily triumphed the emotionless front pages of Kristen Stewart. The colors on K-Stew‘s covers were lovely, but she failed to give sparks on the eyes. FYI, David Beckham made history because he was the first solo male cover star for the magazine.

We loved it when Elle UK used colored backdrop, because the results weren’t boring like when they used white. Just look on how boring was the May issue with Emily Blunt (the subs was way better), September with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, October with Gwen Stefani and November issue with Jessie J (her subs also better than the newsstand version). Those gorgeous dresses can’t saved the images from being dull. There’s an exception though. The January covers with Lady Gaga was interesting because of the bright outfits and minimal text.

Young, talented and bright actors Dakota Fanning (our favourite cover star!) and Mila Kunis landed their very first Elle UK cover this year. The 18 year old was photographed by David Slijper, while the 29 year old former face of Miss Dior handbags was snapped by Doug Inglish. The rest of the cover stars are having better subscriber covers than the newsstands, in our opinion. We are loving those simple, minimalist and no-fuss images of Alexa Chung, Ashley Olsen and Cameron Diaz over their newsstands version.

Overall it’s a hit-and-miss year for Elle UK. But, we are looking forward for their next year’s line up already. Especially after they released their first 2013 cover star, Kylie Minogue (her 7th covers for the magazine!), and it looks promising.
