Last year we crunched the numbers to find out about the average Vogue cover. How old was the average cover subject? Where did they come from? What were they wearing? Who photographed them? All very important questions, indeed. So much so, that we thought they needed to be asked again.
Arizona Muse, top model for the magazine last year (go figure), graced a total of 7 Vogue covers in 2012. It was certainly the numerical win, but perhaps not the most legitimate one. Three of those covers were reprinted from editorials and used for the Greek, Korean and Portugal editions. So let us give credit where credit is due. With 5 original covers each, the runners-up include Daria Werbowy, Karlie Kloss, Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Natasha Poly. Not bad model company to keep.
Of course, the most covers does not (almost never, actually) guarantee a spot as the top model for the magazine, but could Arizona break the mold and make it a second year in a row as the top Vogue model? Don’t you worry, we’ll address that later. But back to the subject at hand…
In 2011 we found out that Gisele Bundchen was the top cover girl, Gucci adorned the most covers, and Mario Testino was top photographer. Has much changed in the past 12 months? Click through to see.
