DECEMBER ’08 MAGAZINE COVERS

Vogue Italia

Katrin Thorman on her second consecutive Vogue Italia cover. This time she is doing it solo but the vibe is rather similar to the previous one with Toni. “The Dunes” is the main editorial featuring a bevy of the upcoming Prada campaign girls (except for Constance of course) and it is inspired by a Japanese film called “Woman in the Dunes”. The editorial is pretty well executed, the models all lazing on the sand with the crimpled Prada pieces making a very appropriate appearance.

Vogue Paris

Julia Stegner in Valentino couture. This styling and the mood are stunning, Julia looks really beautiful here.  It might be the only cover that truly gives a very Christmas feel.

Vogue Espana

Vogue Russia

There is something very striking about this cover. Naomi Campbell’s face is very strong and it contrasts well with the white fur and the jewel piece. I like her slight hint of smile too. 

Vogue Latin-America

Vogue India

Katrina Kaif. The combination of Purple and black is so glamourous here, definitely one of the better covers from Vogue India that can give international appeal. I am just crossing my fingers that Lakshmi will get another solo cover soon.


Vogue Korea

Isabeli Fontana. This has to be one of their best covers this year— very electrifying and mysteriously beautiful.

i-D

In my opinion, i-D does better with model covers than celebrity covers. Leona’s wink is pretty bad, a little restless.

It is really great to see Kate Somers getting a cover besides that impressive runway record for Spring ’09. Her editorial in this issue is amazing.
