If 2010 was the year in which Sasha Pivovarova graced the cover of Vogue Korea twice, and 2011 where Karen Elson also got featured twice, then 2012 is the year of Arizona Muse. The American model and a mother of one landed her first 2012 cover slot in January, photographed by Inez & Vinoodh. It was her second cover after she first debuted for the magazine in 2011 September issue. She landed her third cover for Vogue Korea in September (her second September issue and second cover in 2012), shot by Alexi Lubomirski.
Kasia Struss was featured on February issue, marked her returns on the cover since exactly two years ago. Also returning from their 2010 cover slot are Gisele Bundchen/July also by I&V (we love this so much!), and Anja Rubik/October.
Vogue Korea tapped top names in modeling industry as the remaining cover girls: Karlie-no-introduction-needed-Kloss for March; Daphne Groeneveld goes bold and mature for April; Saskia de Brauw showed her soft side for May; Han Hye Jin looks striking for June; Lara Stone and her infamous cleavage for August; Carolyn Murphy went noir chic for November; and last but not least, the 2012 Model of The Year from British Fashion Awards, Cara Delevingne for December.

Vogue Korea started this year with a great reprint image from Vogue US December 2010 featuring Karen Elson and Tom Ford lensed by Steven Meisel. The flame haired model and singer also landed another cover for October, lensed by Rafael Stahelin who shot three covers last year. Belgian top model, Hanne Gaby Odiele, was photographed in Burberry jacket for one of my favourite covers, February issue, by Tesh.
Actors also got cover slots this year. As you can see, Tang Wei and Hyun Bin are gracing the black and white March issue by Zo Sun Hi while Song Hye Kyo graced the last cover of 2011 snapped by Paolo Roversi.
The rest of the cover slots are belong to models, well known faces, of course: Sasha Pivovarova who landed two covers last year is returning this year for April issue by Nino Munoz; three Korean models–Hyun Yi Lee, Han Hye Jin and Hye Jung Lee–featured for the May cover by Paolo Roversi; Alexa Chung photographed by Alan Gelati for June; a reprint of Isabeli Fontana by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for July; six different covers with six different models graced the August issue, their 15th Anniversary issue; Arizona Muse, in one of her best covers so far, by Victor Demarchelier for September; and last but not least, Mariacarla Boscono by Rafael Stahelin for November.
