It is more exciting to waiting every month and see what GQ UK brings on their covers than the US version. Because GQ UK works with different photographers and setting and concept almost every single months. Unlike their US brother that always with the boring white backdrop and suited-up cover stars.
Some of the highlights from this year that caught our attention are Sam Taylor Wood‘s sephia-colored January cover featuring Daniel Craig, who also featured on one out of six front pages of the magazine’s November issue that celebrating 50th anniversary of the iconic James Bond (the other cover stars are previous Bond casts–George Lazenby, Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore, Sean Connery, and Timothy Dalton).
We love Olivia Wilde‘s cute and sexy April cover by Gavin Bond, but of course the other cover version featuring comedians Ricky Gervais, Michael McIntyre, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Chris Rock, is definitely not on our “best cover” list. Our final favourite front pages from GQ UK this year are featuring three gorgeous, lovely yet sexy ladies: Homeland‘s Claire Danes for September issue by Simon Emmett; singer Lana Del Rey (naked!) for October issue by Mariano Vivanco; and last but not least, Twilight star Ashley Greene for December issue by Benny Horne. They did great jobs with the stunning images!
The rest of the cover stars for this year’s line up including rising actor Michael Fassbender; Academy-Award nominated actress Keira Knightley; Victoria Secret’s Angel from South Africa, Candice Swanepoel; singer Cheryl Cole; the new Peter Parker, Andrew Garfield; the new Bond girl from French, Bérénice Marlohe; stage, tv and film actor James Corden; Mad Men‘s John Slattery, singer Robbie Williams; and rapper Tinie Tempah.
