Vogue Italia

Vogue Paris

vpmai2009cov1Daria Werbowy (in Gucci) ph by Inez & Vinoodh for the denim issue.

Vogue US


The much highly anticipated models cover in conjunction with the MET ‘Model as muses’ gala. See my post about it here.

Vogue UK

ofc_vomay09Daria’s the other Vogue cover of the month, ph by Mario Testino.

Vogue Germany

79060_achat_vogue-de_2009-05_cover_122_599loArlenis’s debut on a Vogue cover, solo. Looking good in Lanvin!

See her editorial in this issue it’s nothing like this cover, and nothing like what she has done before.

Note: it’s been a very long time  since Vogue Germany last put a black girl on the cover.

Vogue Espana

v789p3Carmen Kass.

Vogue Russia

scr4873abMagdalena Frackowiak in Gaultier couture.

Vogue Nippon

5557-500wEniko Mihalik in Chanel

Vogue Korea

1201000060311Anja Rubik on her second ever Vogue cover.

With her work rate in the editorial field, campaigns and runway, it must be a MAJOR wonder why she has gotten only two Vogue covers. Plus, she’s been modelling since 2000 when she debuted on the runways of Givenchy, Rochas, and Nina Ricci at 15.

Vogue China

20090501224728300x600Du Juan again.

Vogue India

9e9db6ec94daFinally, another Vogue India cover for Lakshimi Menon. This must be one of the most gorgeous covers from them to date.

Vogue Australia


Rosie Tupper

Vogue Brazil

93760_vogue_mai09_122_1194loMichelle Alves ph by Steven Klein.

Very interesting cover, and those boots are seriously to die for.

Vogue Latin America

50806_voguela_may09_milana_keller_01_122_243lo1Milana Keller.

Numéro France

zn5zqsMagdalena Frackowiak ph by Sølve Sundsbø. Love this killer cover, soft and feminine plus a little bit of a lethalness.

Numéro Tokyo

2uhy74gIsabeli Fontana in Dolce & Gabbana.

Numéro Korea

3908c749d778Karmen Pedaru and Abbey Lee Kershaw.



Chanel Iman (what a wicked wink!) for ‘The Resourceful Issue”


3c2ce60bc3caEmma Watson.

Dazed & Confused

    Is Vogue India: Lakshmi or Adriana?

  • Rita

    I love most of the covers, Madgalena did a great job on Numero and so did Daria and Sasha, they look so magically perfect! You should DEFINATELY put May’s VOGUE Portugal here, it’s excelent… 😉

  • Laila

    It’s Lakshimi…

    I can’t find Vogue Portugal’s cover as usual. you know the link to image? thanks!

  • Alessafan

    Is it me, or anyone else is having trouble with the covers from Vogue Nippon and Vogue Korea??? I can’t see them :(! SASHA’S AMAZING!!! i love her. And I really like Arleni’s cover.. and Magdalena in Número!!! omg,… great month for covers

  • Coco

    What’s with Vogue Brazil and Latin America? I would have expected a higher standard of them – the Latin America one looks like In Style or some mag of lower calibre, and the Brazil one looks as if they super-imposed Alves onto the background. Maybe it has cultural significance? I just don’t get that cover.

    i-D and Interview look really good – I never thought I’d see those Comme des Garcons mesh head pieces off the catwalk!
    (Yeah I can’t see Vogue Nippon or Korea either. Where’s Vogue Australia?)

  • Laila

    UPDATED: Vogue Korea and Nippon covers plus Vogue Australia. Thanks guys for all the reminders.

  • Prism Reflection

    Vogue Brazil… looking good.

  • C

    I’m loving Magdalena lately and Vogue Russia has been one of my favourites after the fantastic full Natalia Vodianova issue and the great Natasha Poly editorials. Unfortunately they will NEVER be available here I think, Oh the shame!

  • kassie

    Amy Adams has to have the best non-model cover…Sasha looks amazing as always

  • Rita
  • Laila

    thanks Rita!

  • Dani Rodrigues


    Cool this post! I love it!


  • milo

    That Numéro Korea cover looks like a Mulberry Ad!

    You have a nice blog, and I like that you seem to know what your talking about!

  • aaron

    not gonna lie, i’m pretty disappointed with sasha’s cover. she looks good, yes, and i’m really glad she got it, but to me it just doesn’t compare with her previous vogue italia cover which was breathtaking. this cover looks like a bad rehash of the eliza cummings cover, and the awful graphics don’t help.

  • Mini

    anybody knows where i can find Numéro France in singapore?

  • Laila

    Kinokuniya at Ngee Ann City has it. but they are very slow in importing the issues.
