As we’re sure you now know, Vogue cover girls aren’t just plucked out of a hat at random. A lot of careful planning goes into picking the stars of each month–who has a film coming out when? Who has Anna Wintour built a relationship with? Who fits each issue’s theme? After years of…foreseeable covers, we feel like we more or less know a future Vogue cover girl when we see one. So, we’ve decided to try and predict who will cover the glossy in 2013 (besides Saint Laurent-clad Gwen Stefani of course).
Taking into consideration whom Anna Wintour sat next to at fashion shows, past cover girls, 2013′s most highly-anticipated movies and albums, rumors, and our own wishful thinking, click through for 11 ladies we think could very possibly cover Vogue in the next 11 months and a little rationale.
