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.
Princess Stephanie of Monaco, the second daughter of the late Grace Kelly, fronts the Dec/Jan cover of Vogue Paris. She is wearing Versace on the cover.
Kate Moss on her 26th UK Vogue cover— you can check out all her UK Vogue covers here.
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.
Monica Bellucci in Dior couture
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.
Anne V in Givenchy.
Maggie Cheung and Kate Moss.
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.
Zhang ZiYi, looking rather unrecognizable in that makeup.
Raquel Zimmerman in Armani.
Lily Donaldson, reprint of the October Vogue Nippon cover.
Isabeli Fontana. This has to be one of their best covers this year— very electrifying and mysteriously beautiful.
Abbey Lee Kershaw.
In my opinion, i-D does better with model covers than celebrity covers. Leona’s wink is pretty bad, a little restless.
Dazed & Confused
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.
