December is not even started but here we are, presenting our first 2014 covers recap already!
As usual, Numéro Tokyo is the first magazine to wrapped up their front pages line up for this year. They started the year with a soft palette cover and styling of this year’s IT model, Cara Delevingne. Valerija Kelava, with a blunt bangs, fronted the magazine’s March issue shot by Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello who shot the most covers this year. Another cover model with blunt bangs hairstyle was Vlada Roslyakova on the April issue by Ellen Von Unwerth.
Continuing their tradition of having studio shoots, Numéro Tokyo photographed most of their covers with plain backdrop in various colors. From Kiko Mizuhara beauty shot, flower girl Meghan Collison, to classic faced Julia Frauche, cool veteran catwalker Maggie Rizer to model turned actress Tao Okamoto. The only time they have outdoor shots were the one with Elizabeth Olsen (by Michael Schwartz) and Lindsey Wixson (by Guy Aroch)—our favourite image of the year from them.
