We got plenty of favourite covers from W Magazine this year. From Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain‘s artsy selection for January issue and Emma Stone sexy candid for February, to Katy Perry‘s ravishingly minimalist November cover and George Clooney‘s surprisingly good polkadot fever for December. W Magazine hired talented and well known photographers and artists such as Chantal Joffe, George Condo, Mickalene Thomas, Rineke Dijkstra, Juergen Teller, Mario Sorrenti, and Emma Summerton to snapped some of our favourite covers mentioned above.
Another favourite this year would be the remarkable three covers of March issue featuring three world renowned catwalkers Kate Moss, Natalia Vodianova, and Lara Stone, that were photographed stunningly seductive by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The casting, the colors, and the sensual vibe captivates our senses and we just love all of them!
British model Cara Delevingne is another model who landed the cover slot for the Stefano Tonchi-edited magazine this year. The 21 year old was also photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for the important September issue, which was released around her birthday. Talk about a perfect gift for the IT model of the moment.
Brit Marling, Edie Redmayne, Tilda Swinton, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lopez, Léa Seydoux,and Chloë Grace Moretz completed the star-studded list of the magazine 2013 cover subjects. They worked together with top photographers Alasdair McLellan, Tim Walker, Michael Thompson, Mario Sorrenti, and Craig McDean for the magazine’s April, May, June/July, August, and October issues respectively.
As always, Marie Claire UK mixed their covers line up with reprints and their own photoshoots. For example, they’ve got Gwen Stefani, Emma Watson, Keira Knightly, Diane Kruger, Zooey Deschanel, and Scarlett Johansson from the reprint section. They manage to pick the best images from the original publication and use it for their own advantages. Gwen Stefani and Scarlett Johansson images were our favourite from the bunch.
The rest of the covers were not bad either. From actresses Megan Fox, Mila Kunis, Gemma Arterton, and Lena Dunham (rumour has it that she will have an upcoming Vogue US cover), to singer Alicia Keys and Jessie J. Marie Claire UK used celebrities to sell the magazine and we are not complaining as long as they keep producing good covers which suits their demographic perfectly.
Teen Vogue hired five different photographers to snapped their covers line up this year. Jason Kibbler and Peggy Sirota are the only ones who shot 1 cover each. The Australian photographer snapped the first cover of 2013 featuring young actress AnnaSophia Robb, while American born Peggy Sirota photographed two-time cover star One Direction for the September issue. Unfortunately, both images are our least favourite from Teen Vogue.
Irelander Boo George, with his signature sephia colored photography, shot 3 covers this year. He photographed 16 year old Chloë Grace Moretz for March, Justin Bieber (19) for May, and Emma Watson (23) for August. He’s our new favourite photographer because we like all of his works!
Sebastian Kim, who was born in Vietnam, and raised in Iran, Paris and Southern California, also shot 3 slots for Teen Vogue. Pretty Little Liars‘ Shay Mitchell, rapper Nicki Minaj, and Academy Award-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld were all posed in front of his lens.
Italian photographer Giampaolo Sgura who usually works for Dolce & Gabbana, is now broaden up his portfolio by landing the cover stint for the magazine with two issues in a row. He photographed Disney starlets Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez respectively for the magazine’s November and December/January edition.
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!
