Also in this issue is a six page editorial “Chop Chop” on Karlie Kloss’s new short hair (remember how she showed up at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with the new do unannounced?). “Hothouse Flowers” with Karen Elson and Carolyn Murphy is another classic Steven Klein, but with a lot of flowers.
Vogue UK’s starting the year with a new message for women to embrace curves with swimsuit model Kate Upton, again switching to high fashion glossies effortlessly. (See her spread “The Wow Factor“). Highlight of the issue: Karen Elson’s editorial “By The Book” which shows super cute geek-chic look, shot by Patrick Demarchelier.
“Sex & Sensibility” featuring new Best Actress Oscars nominee Jessica Chastain. There’s something really nice about the lack of text on the cover and the eye-popping red Gucci. Check out Jessica’s super intimate story “All That Jazz” by Bruce Weber. Kate Upton also have two editorials in this issue, are these signs of Kate Invasion for 2013? (Or Curve Invasion?)
Vogue Espana has a penchant for keep going back to their favorite models (remember Valentina Zelyaeva and her three Vogue Espana covers from 2006 till 2008?). Edita Vilkeviciute is now on her third Spanish Vogue cover too, rocking a military Chanel jacket from resort 2013. Olivia Palermo has a spread in this issue “Fundido A Negro“, while Cara Delevingne is in “A La Italiana”

Hilary Rhoda by Vicent Peters
