Thomas Whiteside and Carter Smith are the two most hired fashion photographers by Elle US covers this year. American born Thomas Whiteside photographed lots of well known faces in entertainment industry from Jessica Biel, Nicki Minaj, Adele, Reese Witherspoon, Melissa McCarthy, Shailene Woodley, Marion Cotillard, to Naomie Harris for the monthly publication. Fellow American Carter Smith shot six slots for Elle US cover. The covers were featuring Claire Danes, Taylor Swift, Shakira, Amanda Seyfried, Kate Upton, and Lea Michele.
Roberta Myers as Elle US editor in chief mixed it up with the unique works of Ruth Hogben who shot Lady Gaga for their October issue, and Horst Diekgerdes who shot Scandal‘s Kerry Washington for June.
Our favourite from the newsstands covers are Jessica Biel‘s January (the subs also nice!), Taylor Swift‘s March, and Kate Upton‘s September issue. And from the subsriber version, our favourite goes to Shakira‘s July, and Lady Gaga‘s October. Share to us your favourite covers in the comment box below.

I’m loving most of the subscriber covers of this Roberta Myers edited monthly fashion publication rather than the newsstands. But the contents of the magazine that was first published in 1985 are what I love the most, and that what makes me still subscribing Elle US regardless the cover stars.
Some of the covers that got my attention are: Sarah Jessica Parker‘s January issue lensed by Tom Munro. Even though her face looked awkward on the newsstands cover but that green dress from Halston was a great choice; their first model covers in a long time for October issue photographed by Alexei Hay and crazy styling by Joe Zee; all of the subscriber covers for May issue featuring Adele, Gwen Stefani, Robyn, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Hudson; and last but not least, Freida Pinto‘s subscriber cover for November issue lensed by Dusan Reljin. I love those covers!
The rest of the cover stars are Katie Holmes for February by Carter Smith which is just plain bad and unflattering, ugh!; Katy Perry for March also by Carter Smith in Gucci; Amanda Seyfried for April by Alexei Hay in Prada; Rachel McAdams for June by Alexei Hay (the subs cover was quite unusual); funny lady Emma Stone for July by Carter Smith in Versace; Mila Kunis and her Friends With Benefits co star Justin Timberlake for August by Carter Smith; Gwyneth Paltrow for September by Carter Smith (I’m bored of her and Jennifer Aniston to be honest); and the stunning Jessica Biel for December by Elle US regular photographer, Carter Smith.
I know the subscriber covers are not complete yet, hopefully that doesn’t affect your interest to share your favourites on our comment box below 😉 Oh, and you can read last year’s recap here.
