Cover Girls June 2012

We are on the brink of a new month and with that comes a parade of striking Summer covers. These are a few from around the globe that sparked my interest this June.

Stunning Brazilian model Ana Beatriz Barros lends herself to Elle Brazil's June 2012 issue, dressed in in a minted green Versace sheath dress, flecked with tiny gold studs. The dress is seen on US native Jasmine Tookes on the catwalk.

Kate Moss was also styled in an aqua lime piece from Versace's Spring 2012 collection. She appeared in the low-neck, gold studded dress with pleated skirt on the cover of Vogue UK. Dutch model Nimue Smit wears the runway look.

Making her second feature for the month of June, Kate Moss was coated in a flurry of feathers courtesy of Alexander McQueen for the cover of Harper's Bazaar US magazine.

French beauty Constance Jablonski wears an attractive ensemble by Burberry Prorsum for Vogue Turkey. Her fitted SS12 dress has a knotted cut-out neckline and striped skirt. Joan Smalls models the runway look.

'Rock 'n Roll Gold' are the themes of two Vogue covers for June. To the left is model Daria Werbowy, decked in a striking geo-metallic print Balmain jacket with fringed sleeves. She was captured for the cover of Vogue Australia. South African export Candice Swanepoel shines on the cover of Vogue Japan, in very-renowned-by-now Gucci flapper fringed dress. Incidentally, both these outfits were worn by Natasha Poly (pictured right) on the runway.

Two blue shaded, optical illusion print dresses make the trend cut this June. On the left is German dame Toni Garrn in a one-shouldered swirl edged Stella McCartney number, for Vogue Spain. To the right, on the cover of Flare Canada is actress Brooklyn Decker in an enigmatic zip-front dress by Peter Pilotto.

With her movie 'Snow White and the Huntsmen' almost out, Kristen Stewart graces two Elle covers for June 2012. For Elle UK the brunette actress wore an all white perforated knit crop top and skirt by Jil Sander. Sporting a complete opposite look for the US version, Kristen was glamed up in a black sequined Ralph Lauren dress.

Jessica Alba shows off her sexier side for Marie Claire magazine USA, posing in a burgundy-plum Versus Fall 2012 look with lace-up open back. Icelandic model Kolfinna K walks the runway in the sassy dress.

Two pastel pretty looks from Prada's Spring 2012 collection gain attention for June. Top: Gracing the cover of Marie Claire Hong Kong is Asian beauty Gaile Lok. She wears a lace pleated dress in lemon, pink and powder blue. Claire Danes is the cover girl of choice for Harper's Bazaar Russia. The Homeland actress is dressed in a silken rose pink car-print bodysuit with whimsy matching coat and bejewelled belt.

If all these magazines were on the same newsstand, which one would you pick up first?

So many gorgeous covers if I had to pick one I'd probably go with Elle Brazil, they always have the most amazing editorials!

Have a wonderful day!

That dress Brooklyn Decker is wearing is just perfect. And she's so pretty which probably makes the dress look only better.

I love Kate Moss on any cover! But intrigued by our Candice Swanepoel too...and I'm so inspired by Gucci right now.
Great post!

Ember Drake said...

Great catwalk to cover round up! :-)

I would pick up either of the two magazines with the optical illusion dresses on the front - Brooklyn Decker's Peter Pilotto dress is a big favourite of mine!

So, to be honest, if i saw all these magazines on one rack I'd probably run away so I didn't have to make a decision. But I really love the Claire Danes cover. Don't understand Russian though so probably wouldn't buy it hahaa. Love seeing the runway vs magazine cover matchups though!

Style Servings said...

Great overview, will definitely be buying the Kate Moss ones!

Wow, Versace and Balmain look so great on both the runways and the magazine covers. And I couldn't believe that was Claire Danes. She looks a bit different.

What for stunning covers! I love these magazines! I always buy Elle, InStyle, Tatler and other fashion magazines, wherever I am (obviously I read the local editions, so when in the UK, UK editions, if in France, French ones and so on. It's not different here, I'll soon read some of them!)
What draws my attention is the amazing work, the photos are fabulous, the dresses and models too! And you, as usual, with such a great work of selecting, putting all the great pages together with the catwalk images, just wow!!!

I had never seen Ana Beatriz Barros before but her beauty is actually breathtaking!! Sometimes I wonder how women can be that beautiful :) .. I am always, always in such admiration of how you can pull your posts together Sam!! I am always interested in runway looks but think HOWWW can they make that in to street wear or cover wear and here you have compared them - ah-mazing. I still think Kate Moss is a striking beauty too.
