Featured Article: Vogue Russia 2013 Covers Recap


We love how Vogue Russia always experimenting with different types of photography on their covers. Some might worked, some might not. But nonetheless, they always featured top models on their covers line up.

Victoria Davydova tapped homegrown models Natasha Poly (she landed the cover consistently every single year since 2007!), Sasha Pivovarova, and Daria Strokous as the 2013 cover girls. She also featured famous personality Dasha Zhukova who’s a Russian socialite, celebutante, philanthropist, entrepreneur, fashion designer and the editor-in-chief of bi-annual art and fashion magazine GARAGE.

Natasha Poly‘s minimalist image was shot by Patrick Demarchelier, while Sasha‘s red punk September issue was shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. Dasha Zhukova‘s cover was great, but too similar with some of the covers made by Interview magazine, and eventhough the layering on Daria Strokous was heavy, but we kinda liked it.

Some of top names in fashion photography have presented their signature shots for the magazine this year. From Hedi Slimane‘s black and white image on Lara Stone (the Creative Director of Saint Laurent also shot Suvi RiggsMarch issue, eventhough not in his signature B&W), Paolo Roversi‘s sophisticated color tone on Saskia de Brauw, to Vincent Peters clean cinematic shot on Maryna Linchuk.

Some other well known photographers who worked with the monthly fashion publications this year were Richard Bush who shot Joan Smalls for April and Anja Rubik for July; Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer for August issue with Karmen Pedaru; and last but not least Willy Vanderperre who photographed Daria Werbowy (with mullet hair) for October issue.

Featured Article: Vogue Russia 2012 Covers Recap


Vogue Russia cover budget increased in 2012. They managed to tapped top photographers, two of them are fashion designers who also a photographer: Hedi Slimane and Karl Lagerfeld. Slimane, the new head designer at Saint Laurent Paris snapped Iselin Steiro and Daphne Groeneveld with his signature dark and moody image for the cover of the magazine’s March and April issue respectively. While Karl Lagerfeld—of Chanel, Fendi and his namesake label in case you didn’t know—tried something colorful for the December cover, featuring La Linda, in a Fendi yellow fur coat that looked so bright and catchy.

The Demarcheliers, Patrick and Victor, also landed cover job for Vogue Russia in 2012. The father shot the Dolce & Gabbana-clad models trio (Kate King, Anais Pouliot and Ming Xi) for February, while his son shot the October issue featuring actress Scarlett Johansson, who coincidentally also wears Dolce & Gabbana. And she looked good in it!

While the remaining photographers (Anthony Maule/January, Alexi Lubomirski/May, Cüneyt Akeroglu/June, Ellen Von Unwerth/August, and Mario Testino/September) were only shot one slot each last year, British born Richard Bush was lucky enough to secured two cover stints: July issue with Lily Donaldson (our fave), and November issue with Arizona Muse (her second consecutive year appears on the magazine’s front image).

The magazine already released their January issue with Lara Stone, and the editor in chief, Victoria Davydova, continues to work with Hedi Slimane as photographer. Yeah, she likes him that much because she gave him his third cover works in less than a year.
