December 08′ magazine covers

December 6, 2008

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

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.

Vogue US

Kate Moss on her 26th UK Vogue cover— you can check out all her UK Vogue covers here.

Vogue Germany

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

Monica Bellucci in Dior couture

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

Anne V in Givenchy.

Vogue China

Maggie Cheung and Kate Moss. 

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

Zhang ZiYi, looking rather unrecognizable in that makeup.

Vogue Nippon

Raquel Zimmerman in Armani.

Vogue Australia

Lily Donaldson, reprint of the October Vogue Nippon cover.

Numéro France

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

Numéro Tokyo

Mickey Green. 

Numéro Korea

66632833

Abbey Lee Kershaw. 

i-D

31765_scan0015_122_191lo1

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.

    I really like the Korea Vogue cover with Zhang Xiyi — it’s one of the few times that I think a non-model worked here.

    Julia looks so much like Heidi Klum on the Vogue Germany cover I had to look twice at it!

    naomi looks very striking on the vogue russia cover! PETA won’t like the fur being used but i think it looks very festive.

    vogue nippon looks ugly as ever. why don’t they use japanese, asian girls?

    the only thing vogue italia has in common with the “woman in the sands” is that sand. steven meisel is cold, overrated.

    vogue paris shows that less is more. great cover.

    Lovely idea, I adore VOGUE Korea and Germany’s covers!
    You forgot the Portuguese VOGUE, you should see it, it’s beautiful…
