December 2011 magazine covers
Check out RTT’s monthly round-up of all major magazine covers plus editorial highlights!
Karlie Kloss, now all grown up after 4 years of modeling, is going nude for the first time ever for Vogue Italia in “Body by Kloss” photographed by Steven Meisel. In some images, she looks just like some old school supermodel, and her body is incredible indeed, toned and lean like a professional athlete. Australian model Codie Young covers Vogue Beauty in this issue in a black & white set by Greg Lotus and Valerija Keleva goes “Clean & Graphic” for Paolo Roversi.
Kate Moss channeling David Bowie, she’s is barely recognizable in the wig! Also in this issue – “Let’s Dance” with Sasha Pivovarova by Terry Richardson and “More than a Woman” starring previous month’s cover girl Arizona Muse by Inez & Vinoodh. Rounding up the music-themed issue is “Queen of Noise” with Raquel Zimmermann by David Sims and “Last Night” with Karmen Pedaru by Hedi Slimane.
Hollywood Golden Girl Charlize Theron scores her fifth Vogue US cover in a not-so-Fall/Winter-look shot by Annie Leibovitz. For this month in Vogue US, Karlie Kloss goes to “Temptation Island” with English actor and My Week with Marilyn star Eddie Redmayne and Sasha Pivovarova glows in a futuristic shoot by Steven Klein “Golden Rules”.
Gisele Bundchen shows off her famous toned legs in a pair of pants that only she can pull off on the cover of Vogue UK, shot by Mario Testino. The supermodel rocked a series of colorful pieces for her solo editorial “She’s Electric”. Also in this issue is another great set by Tim Walker, who shot model Kirsi Pyrohnen in the exotic Mongolia for “An Awful Big Adventure”.
It’s Karlie again! Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski in a maroon velvet Ralph Lauren gown, check out her oriental inspired editorial here. German-born rising model Carola Remer is also featured a solo spread “Hart & Zart”.

Golden Girls! One of Hollywood’s youngest power siblings – Elle and Dakota Fanning shares the December cover of W Magazine – styled by Edward Eninnful and shot by Mario Sorrenti.

Lara Stone also made an appearance with “Divine Decadence”.
