Gisele Bundchen, the modelling equivalent of the Energizer bunny, graced a total of eight Vogue covers this year, more than any other model or celebrity. It was a close race, but Gisele managed to nab the top spot with highlights that include Emmanelle Alt’s first official issue of Vogue Paris, a delightfully tacky December cover of Vogue UK, and a July issue of Vogue Brazil dedicated solely to her. Not bad. Conde Nast has obviously been taking full advantage of the “Gisele Bundchen Stock Index.”
Eighteen editions of Vogue (up to nineteen with the release Vogue Netherlands next year, yay!) producing, on average, 12 covers a month certainly gives us a lot to play around with. With all the importance placed on a cover–the selling point of a magazine–we wanted to see what Vogues worldwide deemed best to put on the front of their glossies, so we went ahead and crunched the numbers.
Above is our little mock-up to represent 2011. Perhaps it’s a little flashier (okay, tackier) than most magazines you’ll see on a newsstand, but we feel it’s an accurate representation of the year.
