Featured Article: Vogue Italia 2013 Covers Recap


British model and Fall Winter 2013 campaign queen Edie Campbell is clearly snatched the title of Vogue Italia‘s current favourite model. She was photographed three times by Steven Meisel on the front pages this year. From the quirky and unusual look on the April issue, to the effortlessly beautiful May cover with runway veteran Karen Elson, to the classic black and white image on the October issue. Franca Sozzani and her long time collaborator Steven Meisel really loves the 5′ 9″ model.

Another favourite this year is American stunner Amanda Murphy, who is also the current fave of Miuccia Prada. The model who landed #18 spot on Models.com prestigious Top 50 list graced Vogue Italia‘s July and August issue respectively. Brazilian powerhouse Gisele Bundchen has been a long time regular cover star for the magazine, and this year she added two more slots to her ever growing cover list. She once again collaborating with Steven Meisel for the June issue, and also featured as one of the many cover subjects for the magazine’s July edition (alongside Tony Ward, Linda Evangelista, Natalia Vodianova, Raquel Zimmermann, RJ King, Dorian Reeves, Peter Marino, John Pearson, Ethan James, Cameron Russell, Frederik Meijnen, Meghan Collison, and Louis Steyaert)

The statuesque Hungarian Vanessa Axente was the Edie Campbell of 2012. She got featured twice on the cover last year, and in 2013 she landed yet another cover (for March issue with promising new male model Gustav Swedberg). This marked her third appearances for the monthly fashion publication in less than a year! Talk about a future established star in the making.

Special note came from Chinese catwalker Fei Fei Sun who’s featured on the January issue. The minimalist cover (also by Meisel) made history because Fei Fei is the first Asian model who landed an only-girl cover slot for Vogue Italia. Congratulations!

This year’s line up is complete as Steven Meisel also photographed top names Naomi Campbell, Doutzen Kroes, Ashleigh Good, and newcomers Anna Ewers, Ophélie Guillermand, Gracie Van Gastel, and Cindy Bruna as cover girls. Which one is your favourite this year?

Featured Article: Vogue Italia 2012 Covers Recap


If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. That’s how we put the collaboration between photographer Steven Meisel and Vogue Italia that has been going strong for more than 20 years and still counting.

Sometimes they created magic on the covers (i.e the April issue with models Aaron Vernon, Chrystal Copland, Ethan James, Lyle Lodwick, Thairine Garcia and Sojourner Morell; September issue with Carolyn Murphy, and December with Vanessa Axente and Marlon Teixeira), sometimes they created something that’s so dull even though they tapped a great cover star (we are looking at you Mrs. Isabella Rossellini). And they certainly really knows how to liven up the hype, as the current IT model Kate Upton landed one of the most coveted cover slots in the world of fashion publication.

Vogue Italia combined top famous names in modeling industry with the rising newbies as their 2012 cover girls. They mixed runway regulars and veterans Caroline Trentini, Daria Strokous, Joan Smalls, Linda Evangelista, Jamie Bochert, Meghan Collison with promising new crop of girls such as Laura Kampman, Mackenzie Drazan, and Vanessa Axente (she got the honor to be featured twice last year!).

Vogue Italia always came up with something different from the other Vogue editions, and we respect that. Especially the minimalist text on the cover. Franca Sozzani already made history this year as she chose Fei Fei Sun as the magazine’s first ever Asian cover girl! We are looking forward to see what Franca will bring in 2013.

Vogue Italia 2011 Covers Recap


24 year old Danish top model, Freja Beha Erichsen, landed her third Vogue Italia covers in less than a year! Right after her front page slot in March and November 2010, she was featured for the first 2011 cover of Vogue Italia along with her now rumored girlfriend, Arizona Muse, photographed by regular photographer for more than 20 years, Steven Meisel.

Freja Beha Erichsen was not the only returning cover girl for this year’s models line up, because catwalk veteran Kristen McMenamy (August 2010) and the possible new Angel of Victoria’s Secret’s, Karlie Kloss (January 2010), are both returning for another snapped once again by Steven Meisel for the 2011’s May and December issues respectively.

South African born Victoria’s Secret Angel, Candice Swanepoel, was a bombshell on the February issue while the similar hairstyle was sported by Raquel Zimmermann on the dull August cover, my least favourite. But, thankfully, Steven Meisel make it up Raquel Zimmermann‘s boring cover with the exceptionally amazing November issue. One of this year’s best cover! Saskia de Brauw‘s March issue and the sultry black and white June cover featuring three plus size models who looked gorgeous and fabulous: Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley, are amongst this year’s best covers too.

Red haired model/musician, Karen Elson returning to the front page of Vogue Italia for the first time since December 2006 with the same grace and elegance for October. The former face of Missoni, Kristina Salinovic landed her first Vogue Italia cover for April as well as one of the current faces of Balenciaga, Juliane Grüner, for July issue. Last but not least, top model Stella Tennant shocked the fashion industry with her 13 inch waist (that’s not her real waist, right?) and appeared on the September cover of the magazine photographed by Steven Meisel.
