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?
