Dazed & Confused‘s covers are really diverse this year, in a good way. They produced some of the most interesting covers in their history.
We love Grimes‘ April issue, in which she was photographed by Hedi Slimane wearing the unmistakable Givenchy Spring Summer 2012 Haute Couture crystal nose ring and matching earrings. We love the crystal encrusted headpiece that artist Theo-Mass Lexileictous wears on the May cover, shot by Walter Pfeiffer. We love the eerie image of actor Noomi Rapace, by Sølve Sundsbø on the June issue. We also love how controversial their September issue was, with Azealia Banks blowing an inflated red condom, shot by Sharif Hamza.
Their October issue with model Joan Smalls and actor Sam Riley was subtly sexy yet seductive. They’re sensually bitting an apple to match the “Temptation” headline, photographed by Sean & Seng. Iris Apfel‘s November cover (in a bright Comme des Garçons voluminous dress) was one of our favourites this year as well. The 91 year old fashion icon looks amazing on the image snapped by Jeff Bark. Even though some people hated it, but their December issue with Angelababy, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and Nicola Formichetti (all four images were photographed by Matt Irwin) was the most fun and playful images they’ve ever published.
The rest of the cover stars this year are actress Rooney Mara, rappers A$AP Rocky and Snoop Dogg, rising models Erjona Ala, Frida Aasen, Kati Nescher, Lara Mullen, and Zenia Sevastyanova.

The cover was photographed by Armin Morbach. The young British model (she’s with Ford Models in New York and Premier Models in London) looks so much like a powerful 80s woman with big hair and bold styling.

For its March issue, Dazed & Confused presents the freshest of the spring collections, with four separate covers featuring the most exciting new faces of the season: Frida Aasen (snapped by Sean & Seng with styling works by Mattias Karlson), Erjona Ala, Kati Nescher and Lara Mullen.
Pre Spring 2010 >> Three covers.
Pre Spring 2011 >> Six covers.
Pre Spring 2012 >> Nine covers.
i-D Magazine is one of those fashion publications who’s consistent to spoiled their readers with multiple covers and they delivered a whooping nine newsstand and eight online-only front pages for their latest “The Whatever The Weather Issue”!
The newsstand covers that will hit the shelves on February 09th are featuring some of the industry’s well known names and new faces: Dylan Riley by Hedi Slimane; Lara Stone by Alasdair McLellan; Victoria Beckham by Josh Olins; Stella Tennant by Sølve Sundsbø; and Matt Ardell who’s photographed by Jeff Bark along with one of the rising new faces from Spring Summer 2012 season, Lara Mullen.
Charlotte Stockdale was responsible for Stella Tennant and Lara Mullen‘s covers styling.
Four more newsstand covers are far more attractive and stunning. The covers featuring models Li Zheng, Quncuo, Meng Lu and Pan Yan were photographed by one of China’s leading fashion photographers, Chen Man, who is collaborated with Terry Barber, MAC’s Director of Makeup Artistry.
To complete the spectacular series of portraits celebrating the diversity of beauty in China today, eight special online-only cover images, also shot by Chen Man, were released recently featuring Wan Bao Bao, Renqingcuomu, Yangci, Cheng Hong Jin, Xin Yuan, Liu Dan, Zhang Li Na and Langsuowangmu.
We love the gorgeously minimalist Lara Stone cover and all of Chen Man works with the superb styling by Lucia Liu! Which are your favourite covers, guys?
