Vogue India


Gisele Bündchen

Vogue Australia


Cate Blanchett in Balenciaga, Martin Grant and Alexander McQueen illustrated by David Downton. Love how vintage these covers look, Vogue Australia is celebrating their 50th Anniversary.

Vogue Mexico

Always nice to see Coco, but the cover feels very Vogue Espana.

Vogue Greece


Margaryta Senchylo. I’m LOVING their recent covers, last month’s with Eden Clark is lovely as well, they have been using models who suddenly disappeared off the radar.

Vogue Portugal


Karlie Kloss ph by David Sims, reprint from Vogue US July 09′

Numéro France


Lara Stone ph by Karl Lagerfeld, she is bagging two french covers for September, and two of the most influential french magazines! One thing that got me thinking, Lara is wearing Chanel couture Fall 2009, which was shown on the runways in early July… did Karl shot her in this right around that period. It’s good to have the designer as the photographer as well, no? Couture pieces straight off the runway to a magazine cover.

Numéro Tokyo


Eva Herzigova

Numéro Korea


Alana Zimmer, words got out that she’s just chopped all her long locks off? Can’t wait to see her new look.



Natalie Portman. Gorgeous.



Kate Moss in Prada ph by Mert & Marcus.

W Korea


Isabeli Fontana

Dazed & Confused


Kristen Stewart ph by David Sherry.

    Kate is looking horrid!

  • Service2pt0

    I am going to go on a rant about now…

    I’m sorry Mexican Vogue does not feel like Spanish Vogue.

    Seriously this has been the most mexican and most representative of Mexico in a while. The rose, the gold, the red, the model, the hair, this is how affluent ladies look like in the homeland!

  • Phil

    It’s Downton, not Downtown! 😉

    Eva looks great in Numero Tokyo. She’s been around A LONG TIME and still looks fresh and young. Love EVA!

    I am soooo HATING W Magazine right now. I’m definitely NOT renewing my subscription after it runs out this year. It was one of my favorites 5-6 years ago.

    Now it’s TRASH! Utter trash! The last three issues took me less than 10 minutes to browse through and half of the content were completely SH*T. Stop using Steven Klein or Jurgen Teller already. All their photos look the same. You can get Madonna, Brad and Bruce to pose for your magazine but they all still look the same.

    I missed Vogue Brazil with Ana Claudia Michels wonderful in the cover!

  • Robor
