The problem with Vogue Taiwan‘s covers has always been that terrible bold font. which mostly in white. They should really change the fonts ASAP into something more flattering, elegant and sleeker. The cover images were not bad, but that ridiculous fonts and headlines always spoiled it. Can you imagine the covers with more minimalist headlines? It’ll be way better, non?
Most of their cover stars are returning to get another slot once again in 2012. Kwan Lun Mei, Amber Kuo, Cheryl Yang, Vivian Hsu, Shu Qi, Rainie Yang, and A-Mei Cheung are all landed last year covers, and featured again this year. The rest of the cover stars are Michelle Chen, Hsu Hsi Ti, Jolin Tsai, Chiling Lin and Zhang Rong Rong.
We are not looking forward for Vogue Taiwan‘s 2013 covers line up. Well, at least not until they change their layout and fonts. Click here to read our last year’s recap. And feel free to jump in the comment box below, and tell us your favourite image from the magazine this year (if there’s any).

If only Vogue Taiwan change the horrible bold font, be more experimenting with backgrounds/outdoor settings and working things out with the cover layout, I think their front page line up could be better.
My only favourite this year is Takeshi Kaneshiro‘s October cover, the one where he sat down on a luxurious colored sofa. The text are minimum and that’s the kind of cover I’d like to see more coming from this Rosalie Huang edited magazine.
Shu Qi‘s March cover would’ve been another favourite if only the “spring break” headline not as boring as that. Ugh, I really hate that kind of font on a magazine cover.
The rest of the cover stars are: Taiwanese actresses Kwan Lun Mei for January, Amber Kuo for April, Cheryl Yang for May, Janine Chang for June, Zhou Xun for July, Vivian Hsu for August, Rainie Yang for November (she’s also a singer and host), Angelababy for December; singer Amei Chang for September; and anchor Hou Peicen for February.
To be honest, Vogue Taiwan is the weakest link in international Vogue covers and I’m really hoping they will work on that ASAP.
Do you have any favourite cover this year, guys?
