March 2010 magazine covers
Freja finally landed her first Vogue Italia cover while working a lot with Steven Meisel recently after a long dry spell. She first appeared in the huge runway editorial in the January main story, then a single shot in an editorial from Vogue US March ’10, and slowly mounting to this major cover for VI. The lip liner might be a bit distracting, but if it sets people’s tongues wagging then that’s publicity isn’t it? Plus it’s great to see the more feminine side of Freja, that proves her versatility.
Rose Cordero ph by Mert & Marcus. This marks her first ever Vogue cover (check out the main editorial here) and also, the first Vogue Paris cover to feature a solo black model since Liya Kebede in 2002. Rose has been booking a lot of good shows this season (she did Prada Fall ’10), thanks to the timely unveiling of the cover.
Tina Fey in Prada, ph by Mario Testino.
Alexa Chung ph by Alasdair McLellan, time to put one of UK’s most sought after rising style icon in the cover spotlight.
Frida Gustavsson on her first Vogue cover. It’s a pity that her face can’t be seen clearly, but you can easily recognize her by the mole on her cheek. The cover looks very chic and a little bit vintage-y, simply eye-catching.
Anja Rubik ph by Patrick Demarchelier
Abbey Lee ph by Josh Olins. After two va-va-voom covers from Vogue Russia (Poly, Magda), they turned to the sweeter side of things with pink fonts and florals.
Du Juan, Anna Jagodzinska, Lily Donaldson, Constance Jablonski, Liu Wen and Karlie Kloss, all dressed in Chanel, ph by Patrick Demarchelier. The cover shares an uncanny resemblance with Vogue US’s May 2009 models cover.
Isabeli Fontana ph by Inez & Vinoodh. The cover shot looks as if it came straight out of the Moschino Spring ’10 campaign, also by the the same photographers.
Korean actress Kim Tae-hee by Oh Jung-seok
Abbey Lee ph by Max Doyle. The cover might not be exactly high fashion-y but it screams summer all over, and the colour combination is lovely. Abbey is also last year’s March issue‘s cover model for Aussie Vogue, they sure love her.
After Vogue Korea and Greece reprinted a shot from the ‘Jacket of all trades‘ editorial from Vogue US Jan ’10 for their February covers, Portugal is joining the bandwagon. A Vogue US editorial that turned triple-cover? Has this happened before?
The very first edition of Vogue Turkey — Jessica Stam ph by Patrick Demarchelier. Conde Nast might have launched this to compete with Harper’s Bazaar Dubai in the Eurasian/middle east market.
10th anniversay issue, the covers are epic, and very Grecian.
Edita Vilkeviciute, a total seductress in Dior, ph by Sølve Sundsbø.
Megan Fox ph by Craig McDean
Celebrating 5th anniversary with Anja Rubik, Angela Lindvall and Karlie Kloss all in Louis Vuitton, each with a cover and an individual story.
Lara Stone ph by Mert & Marcus. More talks about her body in the issue.
Dazed & Confused
Australian actress and title lead in Alice in the Wonderland —Mia Wasikowska ph by Laurence Passera. While her Teen Vogue cover is cuter, this screams fantasy with the blue hair.
