June 2012 magazine covers
Rock The Trend monthly round-up of all major magazine covers + editorial highlights – see all the Vogues, the Numeros, the Ws – at a glance! Again, many covers are shot at the beach and supermodels in swimsuits… yes it’s all about SUMMER and Olympics fever this month.
Surprise cover for June from the Meisel camp – Italian model/actress Isabella Rossellini, known for her 14-year tenure as a Lancôme model, gets photographed by the lensman for this month’s issue. The editorial “Fascino Senza Eta” exudes old-school charm with a moody setting and feature dark pieces from Pre-Fall ’12 collections. Isabella, Donna Mitchell, Lauren Helm, Susan Forristal, Carolyn Murphy & Guinevere Van Seenus are all starring in the main spread!
Gisele Bundchen is all ready for summer in nothing more than her bikini bottom for the “Health Initative issue”, photographed at the beach by Inez & Vinoodh. See yet another editorial of Gisele flexing her toned body under the sun here in the “Perfect Girl” editorial.
You know the Olympics is around the corner when you see covers like this – Hope Solo, Ryan Lochte and Serena Williams give the fashion bible a sporty run, with cover photography by Annie Leibovitz. Check out the editorial “Country Strong” featuring Karlie Kloss in McQueen, Versace Aterlier, Bottega Veneta and more, posing with US’s top male athletes!
Kate Moss for Vogue UK again! This is her 32nd Vogue UK cover. Mert & Marcus shot this, with Kate wearing Versace. The supermodel looks very photoshopped in her editorial “Mighty Aphrodite” – which reminds me of the Madonna Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 09/10 campaign. Also check out “Paper Plates” with model Lara Mullen shot by Tim Gutt – super whimsical and adorable!
Carolyn Murphy by Alexi Lubomirski. This is the ex-Estee Lauder spokesmodel’s first Vogue cover in five years? She still got it with that hot bod! Check out her editorial here.
Toni Garrn in Stella McCartney by Tom Munro. The German model has three editorials in this issue, the super fun and vibrant “Million Dollar Baby”, “American Dream” and “Tierra a la Vista” – all by Tom Munro, phew!
