Best Covers This Month - December

Vogue Italia's editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani covers Industrie magazine. She looks powerful wearing a black patent leather trench coat (it might be Burberry). The pose and the jacket represents her well not only because she's a strong lady who is determined to make a mark in fashion history, but she also has a great vision. She's made Vogue Italia into what I think is the foremost of Vogue magazines.
Her vision of art and fashion co-existing, that the two are linked, is why she thinks it's very important to leave a large section to art in the magazine, as well as to work with photographers who knows how to capture fashion as art (like Steven Meisel).

I would dare to say that they have the best website of all national Vogue editions, especially now with recently launched Encyclo. Her blog is such an inspiration because she's a rebel, what she writes might often be controversial but it should be that way. She likes to mix in politics and news. In the aftermath of last year's BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico she did more "than ruffle feathers. She drenched them in oil. "
It's worth reading the article about her in Time Magazine. It won't give you the whole picture but will show some of the rebel that is Franca (click here). Read how she transformed Vogue Italia into one of the world's most influential fashion magazines.

The model Heather Marks nailed two covers this month, as you can see here, both for Vogue Hellas and Harper's Bazaar Turkey. Marks in a nude colored chiffon dress standing in a garden - the perfect background for this dress.

I think the emeralds made me put it on this list and this because I'm currently in a phase where I'm craving green jewels. Without those earrings and the ring on her finger, it would be a photo of a beautiful girl but it wouldn't be a cover.
