Cosmopolitan hired new Editor in Chief last September and it brings quite a refreshing look on the covers. Joanna Coles (previously at Marie Claire) tapped quite a number of first timers on the magazine’s line up this year.
She picked Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen to front the January issue, American dancer and actress Julianne Hough for February, the controversial singer Miley Cyrus who landed not one, but two slots (March and December!), Colombian actress Sofia Vergara for June, British singer and TV personality Kelly Osbourne on July, Bulgarian born actress Nina Dobrev for September, and lastly Australian model Miranda Kerr for November. Our fave would be Carly Rae, Julianne, Sofia and Miley‘s December issue.
The returning cover stars this year were Kim Kardashian (April), Rachel Bilson (May), Demi Lovato (August), and Jennifer Lopez–our least favourite (October).
We are noticing that their headlines were more streamlined and in rather similar fonts towards the end of the year. Unlike the rest of the covers where they used more than 2 different fonts, which in our opinion is better suited for the mag. Could this trend continue in 2014? Let’s see next month.
