Graydon Carter edited monthly magazine, Vanity Fair, have some returning/repeating and new cover stars this year.
Angelina Jolie landed her second consecutive cover slot (last year she graced the August issue) for the magazine this October with a stunning shot by photographer duo with the most campaign works in Fall Winter 2011 season, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. Johnny Depp landed not one, but two covers this year: January issue photographed by Annie Leibovitz and November issue snapped by Terry Richardson.
Emma Stone (who’s featured on the foldout cover in March 2010) is landed her solo cover this year for August issue wearing red and white bikini from Marc by Marc Jacobs and lensed by the famed Patrick Demarchelier. It is definitely one of my favourite from Vanity Fair this year along with Annie Leibovitz‘s April issue with Robert Pattinson and Norman Jean Roy photographed March cover with Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and James Franco.
The gorgeous Scarlett Johannsson (remember her naked cover with Keira Knightley and Tom Ford for March 2006 issue?) was photographed by Mario Sorrenti for December while the sensational teen pop singer Justin Bieber (his first VF cover I suppose) was covered in lipstick stains in February front page snapped by Art Streiber.
The remaining covers are the returning Jennifer Lopez (in Gucci) by Mario Testino for September; topless Rob Lowe (his first cover?) for May and the striking first timer Katy Perry for June, both are photographed by Annie Leibovitz; and my least favourite, Prince William and Kate Middleton by Mario Testino for July issue.
