The February Issues 2014

Cover Girls
February 2014

With February being my birthday month, it's only fashionably fair that I collected the most striking magazine covers to celebrate. This month sees many beautifully shot covers that colourfully sign in Spring with some of the best 2014 runway looks. Chanel, Valentino and Prada are exceedingly popular choices, along with a printed mix of brights and subdued pastels that cement Spring 2014 trends. These are my favourite February 2014 issues.

The exquisite Natasha Poly is prismatic on the cover of Vogue Japan, wearing a pop art printed dress with ruffled sleeves from Chanel's creative Spring/Summer 2014 collection.


French beauty Cindy Bruna lends her megawatt smile to the cover of Marie Claire Italy, posing in a graffiti painted black and white tank top and red brush-stroked skirt by Céline.


Harper's Bazaar Korea selected US supermodel Jacquelyn Jablonski to ring in Spring with a dulcet powder blue Burberry Prorsum lace coat decked with green jeweled embellishings. The look is sadly styled without the pink runway belt, but with a large straw hat.


Naomie Harris dazzles on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia wearing a coral embroidered long-sleeved lace playsuit by famed designer Elie Saab.


Harper's Bazaar Spain turns our attention to Prada's whimsical mural face painted dress with emerald and gold embellished bodice as modeled by France's Julia Frauche.


Cover veteran Karolina Kurkova extends her star power to the cover of Harper's Bazaar Singapore in a kaleidoscopic paint palette one-shouldered dress by Chanel


Upcoming Chinese model Le Wei colours in the cover of Glamour France with a bold paint splashed oversized shirt from Céline's Spring/Summer 2014 line.


Vogue Ukraine settles on a romantic threshold into Spring, with Isabeli Fontana on the cover in a beautiful floral appliquéd mesh dress by Dolce & Gabbana.

Keira Knightley returns to the spotlight with a triumphant feature on Harper's Bazaar UK. The English actress poses for two cover shots, both in rainbow printed dresses from Chanel's increasingly popular artsy Spring 2014 range.


The ethereal Ola Rudnicka stays on home turf for her stint on the cover of Elle Poland. She wears a rose pink lips-hearts-&-matches crystal studded dress by Stella McCartney. Her ash blonde locks and deep berry lips are by far my favourite makeup/hair look of the month. 



Russian model Anna Selezneva gains attention on the cover of Vogue Mexico with her piercing blue eyes, mirrored by this sky blue Miu Miu frock with beaded fringing.


Valentino should be proud to crown a trio of magazine covers this month, with beautiful folksy dresses from their Spring 2014 range. From left: Mariacarla Boscono in an aqua & coral embroidered gown for Glamour Italy. Zooey Deschanel dons a sheer bohemian printed look on the cover of Elle US. And lastly, Finnish model Suvi Koponen is notable on the cover of Vogue Germany wearing a fringed cape and matching tribal embroidered dress.

Daria Werbowy graces Harper's Bazaar US in an intriguing Proenza Schouler criss-cross cut-out monochrome dress with metallic pleated skirt. The angles and detail of this dress photographs brilliantly, making it a memorable cover choice.

Holland's Marthe Wiggers brings a girly playfulness to the cover of Spur Japan with her doll like features and voluminous crimped hair. She wears a lemon and blue embroidered petal pink shift dress by Stella McCartney Resort 2014.


Sarah Jessica Parker is eye-catching on the cover of InStyle USA, wearing a glitzy blue and green beaded corset dress by Prada with rainbow motif/ face printed skirt.


Based only on the cover shot, which of these February 2014 fashion magazines would you pick up first?

Adeola Naomi Aderemi said...

Oh Sam I am already drooling over my online edition of Harper's Bazaars both UK AND USA. Keira and Daria are just more than amazing and happen to be my top list of people who really deserve a fashion mag cover.
I am always true to my British Vogue too, no matter who is on the cover.
Thanks for a great post and have a lovely day!

Bárbara Marques said...

So many bright covers :) I think Elle's is my favourite!

miss b said...

These are certainly striking and eye-catching covers. Perhaps after a dark winter we need to see all these bright colours. The Stella McCartney dress is so different and quirky but I'm drawn to the Mui Mui sky blue - such a pretty colour that I would probably pick up that one first.

Nicky mywishstyle said...

the chinese model is fantastic, love her style!

I really like the applique style dresses you've posted here... I like the idea of a practically nude or clean canvas and then these tiny little flowers or gemstones plastered among it. It's so simple but so effective. Great reviews on these, Sam! <3

Two trends I noticed here: more models than celebrities on the covers, and a ton of Chanel! I think all the dresses look ten times better on the covers than on the runways for some reason. :)
