This 2011 recap marks W magazine’s first full covers line up with new logo since they changed it September 2010 and their covers did not disappoints.
Stefano Tonchi‘s edited monthly publication chose actors Garrett Hedlund and Emma Stone to graced the January covers photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and then the magazine gave an exclusive first look of February cover girl, Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander (remember the tension between Vanity Fair and W about the cover star?) from the upcoming David Fincher‘s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The cover was photographed by Jean Baptiste-Mondino who also shot the April covers featuring Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska.
Academy Award nominated actress, Mila Kunis heated up the March cover as she was photographed by Craig McDean in Eres silk bra and Chanel silk tulle organza coat. The British born New York based fashion photographer also lensed Mad Men‘s January Jones for the two covers of May issue. Academy Award winning actors, Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks was photographed together by Mario Sorrenti for the June issue promoting Larry Crowne. The Naples born New York City based photographer also shot one of my favourite magazine covers ever, the December issue featuring the divine Dakota and Elle Fanning. Another Academy Award winning actress, Tilda Swinton, also one of the cover stars for W magazine this year. The 2008 winner of Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role from Michael Clayton was lensed by Tim Walker for August issue.
Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott (the first was born in Turkey while the latter in Wales) photographed Kristen Stewart like we’ve never seen her before, winged tip eyeliner and boufant hair, for the important September cover while the October cover featuring In Time lead casts, Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried, marked the returns of Michael Thompson for magazine cover in a long time.
W gave another slot of two different covers for July (Music & Style) and November (Art & Fashion) issues featuring one nude Christina Aguilera by Daniele & Iango, glammed up Beyoncé by Patrick Demarchelier, the rising model Sui He by Max Vadukul and the quirky Nicki Minaj by Francesco Vezzoli respectively.
