Katy Perry has scored her first ever US Vogue cover, appearing on the July 2013 issue. The 28-year-old singer was photographed for the magazine by Annie Leibovitz and models a dress from the Rodarte Autumn/Winter 2013 collection. I think it’s a beautiful cover, and whether or not you feel Katy is ‘Vogue’ material you can’t deny she has a big newsstand pull.
So far this year there haven’t been many US Vogue cover debuts. The June issue featured Kate Upton, which was a first for the model, but otherwise Anna Wintour has stuck to familiar Vogue faces. I’m hoping that we’ll see some more newbies for the second half of the year. Jennifer Lawrence is sure to score the October or November cover ready for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘s release.
I’d also welcome a Lena Dunham cover (wouldn’t it be AMAZING if Anna surprised everyone and booked her for the September issue?) and I think it’s about time Karlie Kloss was given the newsstand treatment. Nothing against Kate Upton, but she definitely didn’t deserve to get a cover before Miss Kloss! And, finally, both Zoe Saldana and Kerry Washington are constantly topping the Best Dressed lists, so they’re in desperate need of Vogue covers! Here’s the dream Vogue lineup for the rest of 2013. Please make it happen, Anna…
It would be pretty amazing (and bizarre) if my entire wishlist came true, but I’m hoping Anna Wintour and team will make a few of these covers a reality.
Are you pleased to see Katy Perry on the July US Vogue cover? Who would you like to see cover the magazine next?
