Featured Article: Vogue US 2012 Covers Recap


Most of Vogue US covers this year were great. Except Keira Knightley‘s October issue by Mario Testino. Camera loves her chiseled aristocratic face, but that metallic glove was really distracting and unnecessary. But, overall we are pleased with this year’s line up. We are excited already to see 2013 cover stars, because they’ve started the year with Gwen Stefani, and today there’s a rumour swirling that Beyoncé will be featured on the magazine’s important March issue, snapped by Annie Leibovitz few days ago. Just in time for her Super Bowl singing stint. Talk about perfect timing.

Anna Wintour gave five cover slots to first timers this year, and every single one of them wasn’t disappointed. Annie Leibovitz photographed Vogue US‘ oldest cover star, 63 year old Academy Award winner Meryl Streep for the earthy January issue (fellow winner and returning cover star, Marion Cotillard landed the August slot by Peter Lindbergh). She also photographed the then Olympic hopefuls from America, soccer player Hope Solo, swimmer Ryan Lochte (he’s now one of the few men who got the honor to be featured on the cover), and tennis player Serena Williams for June issue. Mario Testino shot two first timers: young singer Taylor Swift for February and the ever lovely Emma Stone for July. Last but not least, one of the most anticipated covers of the year was Adele‘s March issue, photographed stunningly by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.

Their 606-page March issue wasn’t the only issue we looked forward to. Because in September, they made history when they producing their biggest issue, ever! The 916-page edition was fronted by Lady Gaga, who wears Marc Jacobs purple patched dress and posed also in front of M&M‘s lens. The busy duo also produced the striking April cover, with Jennifer Lopez in a fiery red Bottega Veneta dress.

Scarlett Johansson goes blonde and wears vintage Prada dress on her second Vogue cover. The bombshell actress graced the May issue by Mario Testino. Rihanna also landed her second cover slot this year (as well as Lady Gaga). The Barbadian singer fronted the magazine’s November issue in Valentino, that was shot beautifully by Annie Leibovitz. Rounding up her work with Vogue US, Mrs.Leibovitz photographed the December front page with former Academy Award host, Anne Hathaway (in a green Vera Wang Spring Summer 2013 dress). And that makes her shared the spot with Mario Testino, who also shot four covers this year for the magazine.

For their Annual Hollywood Issue (this years remarks their 17th edition), Vanity Fair gathered some of current hottest, young and most talented movie stars : Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Jame Franco (Hathaway and Oscar nominee Franco are co hosting this years Oscar!), Jennifer Lawrence (this year Oscar nominee), Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg (third this year’s Oscar nominee in this cover!), Mila Kunis, Robert Duvall (he’s NOT young and NOT a new actor, why is he on the cover???), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield (remember how he was struggling to “introduced” The Social Network on this year’s Golden Globe?), Rashida Jones (in Tom Ford), Garrett Hedlund and Noomi Rapace (she almost unrecognizable here!!).

“We wanted to evoke the glamour of 1930s Shanghai, an era of smoky, alluring elegance. We had the gentlemen looking dashing in black tie, whilst the ladies were radiant in spring’s gowns—from Gucci to Yves Saint Laurent—and glittering with diamonds from Chanel and other arbiters of glamour.” says fashion and style director Jessica Diehl.
