Rock The Trend monthly round-up of all major magazine covers, see all the Vogues, the Numeros, the Ws in a glance! Grace Coddington made an appearance on i-D and Numero Thailand launched its debut issue this month too. Check it all out!
This is hot stuff. Vanessa Axente and Marlon Teixeira photographed by Steven Meisel. You don’t usually see male models making an appearance on the cover of VI but Marlon, with his super hot bod deserves the spotlight. Check out the highly sexually charged video shoot of the main editorial High Gloss.
Former First lady of France and ex-Supermodel Carla Bruni Sarkozy gets back to her roots for a Vogue Paris cover story shot by Mert & Marcus – in Denim! Despite being a First Lady, this is actually Carla’s debut on Vogue Paris cover. She has two Meisel-shot Vogue Italia cover under her belt and one Vogue UK and one Vogue España – check out Carla’s editorial in this issue here.
Anne Hathaway, star of the new movie release Les Misérable, scores her third Vogue US cover, by Annie Leibovitz. Anna Wintour really likes Anne – on average she’s featured on the magazine’s cover at least once every two years – but this is the first time she’s been shot for Vogue US in her new pixie hair (check out her chic editorial here). Raquel Zimmermann also made a return with Full Spectrum shot by Craig McDean and Carolyn Murphy has a spread by Mario Testino by the seaside Swept Away.
Natalia Vodianova by Mario Testino. While the cover pales in comparison to the past few December issues of Vogue UK (Kate Moss, Emma Watson, Lara Stone, Gisele Bundchen), the main editorial is pretty vibrant – see Colour Fast.
Toni Garrn, the Germany’s very own model icon, on her fifth Vogue German cover in 4 years.
