Vogue Japan 2011 Covers Recap


What is the similarity between Vogue Japan and Glamour US? If your answer is both of the magazine using white backdrop, then you are correct!

If Glamour US selling celebrities on their covers, Vogue Japan (previously known as Vogue Nippon) is using top models to gracing their covers. Last year, Daria Werbowy, Lily Donaldson, Raquel Zimmermann and Abbey Lee Kershaw each landed two cover slots. But only the latter returning this year and featured for the badly criticized July cover taken by Mario Sorrenti in Christian Dior yellow beaded dress.

Most of the cover girls last year are related to Victoria’s Secret, but this year only Abbey Lee Kershaw, Karolina Kurkova (September issue photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin in Giorgio Armani printed dress), Gisele Bundchen (January issue photographed by Mario Sorrenti in Gucci) and Izabel Goulart (March issue photographed by Inez & Vinoodh in Dolce & Gabbana) who’s related to the much anticipated annual fashion show.

Two red-haired singers, Karen Elson (who is also a very famous model) and Florence Welch (in the first non-model cover in more than five years!) graced the February and October issue photographed by Inez & Vinoodh and Karl Lagerfeld respectively.

There are also two supermodels, Kate Moss (this issue marked the change from Vogue Nippon to Vogue Japan and I’m loving this cover with that Chanel dress!) and Naomi Campbell (in Gucci) who landed the May and June cover of the magazine photographed by Mert & Marcus and Inez & Vinoodh respectively.

A group shot of new crop of girls are featured for the April issue which the girls are wearing Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2011 dresses and photographed once again by husband and wife duo, Inez & Vinoodh. The girls are Fei Fei Sun from China, Milou Van Groesen from Netherlands, Bambi Northwood-Blyth from Australia and Britt Maren from USA.

Italian photographer, Giampaolo Sgura, landed his first ever Vogue Japan cover for December issue featuring first time cover girl for the magazine, Aymeline Valade (in Bottega Veneta) posed in a similar posing style as Lara Stone‘s November front page image lensed by Mario Sorrenti. The gap-toothed top model wearing yellow Givenchy sweater and printed skirt from the Fall Winter 2011 collection.

Pillow lipped Dutch model, Daphne Groeneveld was photographed for August issue also by Mario Sorrenti in Miu Miu for one of my favourite covers from the magazine this year. The blue masthead and the styling works by George Cortina are working for me. Love this!
