Joan Smalls by Kacper Kasprzyk and Carine Roitfeld for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. How can you go wrong with Joan Smalls in Givenchy? The cover and the accompanying spring 2013 collections story were produced in New York and featured in 26 international editions of Harper’s Bazaar to mark Carine Roitfeld’s appointment as global fashion director of the title. No wonder it is by far the best national cover on newsstands this month.
Alessandra Ambrósio by Fabio Bartelt for Vogue Brazil. I love Alessandra (more than ever after working with her) and I love the choice of the Louis Vuitton look, but the overall styling of the cover feels dated and not exciting. It could have been brilliant had it been done slightly differently, but still it looks much more interesting than the publication did a year ago.
Bruna Tenório by Gui Paganini for Elle Brazil. Sorry, but I don’t get the styling at all and it is one of my least favorite covers of Elle Brazil in a while. Are Brazilian women supposed to want to look like that?
Thairine Garcia by Bob Wolfenson for L’Officiel Brazil. Thairine is back to being a brunette, and delivers the best cover of L’Officiel Brazil since the relaunch of the publication a year ago.
