Featured Article: Elle US 2012 Covers Recap

We must appreciates Elle US editors decision to choose other color than white as the backdrop on their usually boring newsstands covers this year. The only interesting image with white backdrop was Blake Lively‘s March issue, but that’s only because of her strong pose. We are not loving Katherine Heigl‘s January, Reese Witherspoon‘s February, Rihanna‘s May, and Katie HolmesAugust issue, at all.

Their first attempt was dark grey background, for Jessica Simpson‘s naked April cover, and we are not impressed by it. They used bold red and combined it with Kristen Stewart for June, which kinda worked and interesting. Selena Gomez posed in a black and gold Dolce & Gabbana dress in front of summer-ish ombré blue background for July issue, while shocking pink was used for their September cover to matched Katy Perry‘s pink sequined dress from Bottega Veneta. One of the worst covers of the year nominees is Britney SpearsOctober issue. Oh, how we wished they’ve used different background color other than the dull grey, and less photoshop next time, please!

The November (there are 5 different subs covers and Kristen Wiig‘s is our fave!) and December covers with Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lawrence are the best images with colored backdrop. We love how Alexi Lubomirski snapped SJP‘s perfectly flowing hair and Carter Smith did a good job capturing Jennifer Lawrence‘s subtle sexiness. Jennifer‘s subscriber cover is also one of the best subscriber covers that Elle US has ever produced.

Featured Article: Cosmopolitan UK 2012 Covers Recap


Still with it’s signature white backdrop and horrible amount of text, Cosmopolitan UK tapped Kim Kardashian (reprint from Cosmo US) and Holly Willoughby to return as two of their 2012 cover stars. Both of the mentioned names graced the magazine’s cover last year. Kim Kardashian even landed yet another slot this year as she graces one of the December covers with her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney. While the other cover was featuring British boy band, One Direction.

Our favourite this year goes to Pixie Lott‘s soft colored February issue and Tulisa Contostavlos‘ bold November issue. Some may not like Tulisa‘s daring look but she nailed that peroxide blonde hair in our opinion. And the pose it’s so Cosmo!

The rest of the cover girls this year are actress Katherine Heigl, the voluptuous Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, The Saturdays band members Mollie King and Rochelle Wiseman, New Girl‘s Zooey Deschanel, track and field athlete Jessica Ennis, former Pussycat Dolls member and the current judge of The X Factor Nicole Scherzinger, and last but not least Gossip Girls‘ lead star and singer Leighton Meester.

Which one is your favourite cover from Cosmopolitan UK this year?

W 2010 Covers Recap

Jennifer Garner wearing Dior orange dress for W January 2010, she looked fresh! (there’s still photoshop i think). Rihanna in white Gucci was February cover girl. Megan Fox wearing blue Giorgio Armani for March. All were photographed by Craig McDean.

Steven Klein photographed Gerald Butler and Jennifer Aniston (she’s wearing Lanvin shoes) for April cover where the two promoting their movie, The Bounty Hunter. Julianna Margulies photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg wearing red Dolce & Gabbana animal print dress showing the awkward split on her dress for May cover. Cate Blanchett photographed by Craig McDean for June is one of my favourite cover from W this year. She looked ethereal in the image. The famous Miu Miu dress first appeared on W July cover. Eva Mendes wore it and lensed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The dress goes a long way ever since.

August 2010 was Stefano Tonchi‘s first W cover since he moved to the magazine in March. He chose Rebecca Hall and her co-star in The Town, Jon Hamm as they both photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg. Tonchi chose 8 rising movie stars for his first September issue, all of them photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. It was also remarked the first full issue edited by Tonchi. New logo, new layout, new W.

Blue Valentine‘s star Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling posed together for W October cover as they lensed by Inez & Vinoodh. While Kim Kardashian posed naked for November cover for it’s Art Issue shot by Mark Seliger. Katherine Heigl and her adopted daughter, Naleigh are the December cover stars of W with Patrick Demarchelier as photographer. It’s more like family portrait than a cover.

Im not quite a fan of the last 2 months covers of W, maybe because the cover featured less color (it’s still a great images though) but Stefano Tonchi took risk with his decisions at W. I salute him for that.

23 cover stars, 7 photographers, 6 white background covers, 4 dark background covers and 2 outdoors covers.

Harper’s Bazaar US 2010 Covers Recap

Looks like Harper’s Bazaar US tried different types of covers this year.

Blue background : Kate Hudson‘s January by Peter Lindbergh, Miley Cyrus‘s February by Peter Lindbergh and Demi Moore‘s April by Mark Seliger.

Terry Richardson-esque : The famed photographer photographed Cameron Diaz for August and Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks for November.

Close up : Kate Moss by Peter Lindbergh for March.

Vogue-ish : Katherine Heigl for June/July by Alexi Lubomirski

White background : Gwyneth Paltrow‘s May by Alexi Lubomirski and Jennifer Aniston‘s September by Mark Seliger.

Festive background : Drew Barrymore gold background for October by Mark Seliger and Katy Perry silver background by Alexi Lubomirski for December (click here for Katy‘s special limited edition subscriber cover).

Alexi Lubomirski, Mark Seliger and Peter Lindbergh each shot 3 covers this year. While Terry Richardson shot 2 covers.

From their 11 covers, 8 of them featured big “FASHION” stamped on the headlines. Of course we already knew that Harper’s Bazaar is a fashion magazine :))

None of the newsstands cover is my favourite, because the covers are not selling and not attractive to me. Maybe it’s their signature cover, but i think they need to make the cover much more attractive if they want to sell more issues… I gotta admit, i loved their fashion spreads even better than their covers. And my favourite goes to the black and white subscriber cover of November featuring Georgia May Jagger by Hedi Slimane.
