The Year of 2013 In Magazine Covers

It’s the period of the year we wrap-up on everything that’s a bit relevant. Well


Lana Del Rey on the cover of the Russian edition of Interview – In a very arty cover LDR was referred as indie sensation  and Youtube revelation of the 2012 with her song Video Games. Since then she has build a very successful brand that some says is now way too commercial. Even if she’ll probably get a nomination for ‘Young and Beautiful‘ as Best Original Song for Great Gastby, younger singer Lorde will probably take her  Indie pop princess crown on 2014.



Rihanna on the cover of Rolling Stone. “Stupid ass RiRi’s stupid ass relationship with stupid ass Chris Brown is nobody’s business, which is why she’s talking about it to Rolling Stone.” _ Dlisted.

Beyonce stroke the Vogue Cover. 2013 was Bey year . She was absolutely everywhere. No doubt about it. She also made it in fashion with her H&M collaboration. “Beyonce Beyonce, everywhere Beyonce. 2013 has been all about Beyonce. So Beyonce directed a movie about Beyonce using Beyonce’s own footage of Beyonce and it healed Beyonce and made Beyonce want to cry. Pure. Narcissism. 100 proof.”_ Lainey Gossip.

Michelle Williams appeared with redface on the cover of Another magazine. This was hugely criticized. Williams posed for the British fashion and culture mag looking like an american native woman. The “redface” was interpreted as an offensively clichéd version of Native American.

And Joaquin Phoenix just behind him, whose chances would greatly improve if he put even five minutes of effort into campaigning (which he won’t).( LaineyGossip)

Taylor Swift on New York Style. I cannot help but not hating this cover even if I really don’t understand all this fuzz around this star. Taylor Swift had won so many awards and sold so many albums and she has such a big army of fans that she won the title of biggest of pop star in the world.  She kinda replace Britney at this time. But for how long ?

Lea Seydoux on Jalouse. Lea Seydoux is the new french revelation of 2013. She’s already in every single french movie that is sellable outside France. Is she the next Marion Cotillard ? To my opinion she could. She as the caractere, she is a fresh face, she kinda of differente of all the other french actress that usually look fragile and cute as a doll. She more looks like a Monica Bellucci with something of Beatrice Dalle …that suits her so well.
