Candice Swanepoel by Mariano Vivanco and Zee Nunes for Vogue Brazil. Why two covers when one is so much stronger than the other? The top one in black and white by Mariano Vivanco looks amazing and is one of my favorite Vogue Brazil covers recently, and I would have certainly stuck with just that one. That said, I found the issue dedicated entirely to Candice to be really disappointing in terms of photography.
Josephine Skriver by Nicole Heiniger for Elle Brazil. Looks pretty on the top part, and wrong from the neck down. Something about the angle of the picture makes the proportions of her body look completely off, and makes this my least favorite cover this month.
Daniela Braga by Bob Wolfenson for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. My favorite national cover featuring Daniela so far, and a million times better than her previous Bazaar cover last year. The only thing I don’t get is the art direction this time. The type in front of her body did not need to be there.

As much as I personally dislike the art direction, the first cover above is perhaps my favorite cover of Vogue Brazil this year and much better than Gisele’s other Vogue Brazil cover this year shot by Mario Testino for the June issue. I also like the styling by Yasmine Sterea here, but it is hard to get excited about this story after seeing Gisele’s brilliant editorials in the past couple of months for Self Service, Vogue Paris, and the WSJ Magazine.

Marcélia Freesz by Bob Wolfenson for Elle Brazil. By far my favorite cover of the magazine since Susana Barbosa took over as editor of the magazine. It is everything a Brazilian fashion cover should be, sexy, colorful, easy, and not over-retouched as so many of Elle Brazil’s covers often are.
Karlie Kloss by Henrique Gendre for Vogue Brazil. I am not a fan of the art direction as usual, but I do like that it is a more fun and unexpected cover for Brazilian Vogue. Would have loved to see Karlie in a bikini or one-piece instead though.
Crystal Renn by Dusan Reljin for the second anniversary cover of Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. One of my favorite covers of Bazaar Brazil since it launched two years ago. Love the styling by Victoria Bartlett.
Actress Taís Araujo by Terry Richardson for L’Officiel Brazil. This may be the most interesting cover so far of L’Officiel Brazil (it looks a lot richer on newsstands with a metallic gold logo), but misspelled words on purpose on the cover are neither hip nor cool.
To end on a positive note, this just may be the month with the best collection of fashion covers so far this year in Brazil, with every single publication stepping up.
