2015 Top 10 Magazine Covers 年度全球雜誌封面點評

Now it's like a rap of 2015, and this is the perfect time to see some amazing covers of magazines this year. I think what strengths print media has is the cover. The print cover directly conveys their idea of that month, and impress people with their ideas. I chose the covers according to the creativities, sense of beauty, and the cover stories behind. 
年末是個回顧一年時尚界做了什麼的時間,許多人會寫大事件,我則來寫我喜歡的十個封面。紙本媒體厲害的還是在封面(網路再怎麼用還是沒辦法弄出個像樣的封面,沒有資源),封面是雜誌最直接傳達他們想法的方式,賣的好不好,封面佔很大的因素。很多雜誌封面都不敢創新,或是亂拍醜翻天,我這次挑選全球10個我最愛的封面,主要根據他們的創意度,美感,還有封面故事來給大家。

1. ELLE UK cover may 2015
May cover of ELLE UK is my favorite of all! They are the first fashion magazine to put Rebel Wilson on the magazines and break the stereotype of cover girls.(Those skinny boring beautiful girls) They even start an idea of #Bemorerebel to encourage girls to be who they are! Impressive~
今年英國版五月刊elle真的太有種!他們請來Rebel Wilson來拍攝,改變大家對封面女郎的刻板印象(每次拍那些沒故事的美麗瘦明星真的是很煩),他們還發起了Bemorerebel活動,鼓勵大家做自己,接受自己的身材與曲線,太喜歡這個封面!
2.Bazaar China Cover August 2015
Because of The Assassin movie, Shu Qi has been on lots of fashion magazine covers that month. However, I think this one is the best to portrait her wilderness and braveness in both movie and life.
因為聶隱娘的上映,舒淇根本就攻佔所有華語八月刊的封面,然而最好看的絕對是陳漫幫芭莎拍的這組片,真的是我歷年來看過舒淇最好看的封面,把舒淇的俠女豪爽勇敢的性格,完美呈現!
3. Vogue Paris Cover December 2015
I love how French Vogue dares to try everything on their covers. This is the most iconic cover I have ever seen. It shows Vanessa's famous teeth. Some magazines always photoshop too much to make it "flawless", but actually it's the uniqueness and the flaw to make a person special and different from others.
我非常喜歡這次的法國版封面,當初看到整個就忘不了~法國版與義大利版一向都勇於在封面上嘗試創新,這是請來Vanessa露出招牌的牙縫,連眼睛都沒露出來的封面真的沒幾家雜誌敢。最近看太多雜誌都瘋狂photoshop想把封面女郎用的很完美,但他們沒想到的是,其實每個人的一些缺陷與不完美,才是讓人與眾不同的點(不然就全都去整形當網紅啦)
4. Vanity Fair July Cover 2015 
I love how Annie Leibovitz make people look real in front of her cameras. This Caitlyn did make a buzz then, but more important is that a world getting more open minded to LGBTQ~
這本雜誌當初真的是轟動全球,除了 Caitlyn本身話題性很高,厲害的是攝影師Annie Leibovitz總能把人最真實的畫面給捕捉住,讓這張照片真實呈現她的年齡與經過變性後的開朗接受自己,也謝謝Vanity Fair能讓更多人對變性人有了更多的了解。(Caitlyn是kim kardashian與kendall jenner的爸爸~後來變性改叫Caitlyn)
5.ELLE Taiwan June Cover
This is my favorite cover of ELLE! It's really cool that they let the cover star stare at other side, and the model in the front make this photo look like a street snap but still professional enough to be a cover.
這張是我近期最愛的elle封面,看膩雜誌總是叫女明星眼睛對著鏡頭,擺著生硬的姿勢拍照!這是elle很勇敢的嘗鮮,把桂綸鎂用側臉的方式面對鏡頭,並且加上前景的模特,看起來就像一張自然的街拍,質感與構圖也都有達到封面水準,十分讓人耳目一新。
6. TIME ADELE  cover
ADELE + RED = PERFECT!!!!!! When I saw this cover, I immediately said "WOW~" There were lots of Adele cover this month. However, this one with simple RED perfectly showed Adele's beautiful cheekbones and eyes. The makeup and styling are perfect~
最近adele出專輯到處封面都是她,然而只有這張TIME我才覺得真正拍出阿呆兒的韻味~她美麗的就是眼睛與可愛的胖胖臉頰與下巴,這張妝髮造型都很到位,不會像其他雜誌妝超濃,感覺Adele超老,這張簡單的紅色,搭配本身time的logo,真的又美又有氣勢!
7. W magazine February 2015 the movie issue
Movie and fashion is always related, cuz what we see on the screens will affect how we wear and what we think. They exquisitely select 7 movies to make powerful covers to demonstrate what they act in the movies. Hope they will have it next year.
今年二月w雜誌在奧斯卡前發佈了七組電影封面,本來電影就與時尚密不可分,電影影響我們的穿著與思想,而時尚在電影裡也是塑造角色的重要工具。這次他請來七組奧斯卡候選的封面,不僅有話題性,拍的也很好看!(明年不知有沒有,但感覺今年電影還好)
8. ELLE china may 2015
This cover may not be the best, but how they collaborate the cover with TV show is such a brilliant idea! Liu Wen and Shiwan in the TV reality show teased readers first, then when the magazines hit the shelves, people will buy it because they want to catch the hottest topic on the internet. 
這組ELLE封面還不錯,但我想講的是背後的行銷方式非常非常強!有看過我們相愛吧的人就知道裡面劉雯與始源這對情侶顏值不但高,而且兩人看起來相愛真實性很高,ELLE全程合作,讓大家不但能看到封面的拍攝花序(還能省一筆視頻拍攝錢哈哈哈),重點是她成功的把話題熱點導向自家的封面,每個人看完相愛吧一定都會想買這本,成功的打造話題也打響elle品牌~
9. Vogue Us march cover 2015
I don't need to say anything, cuz no magazine can gather Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift to shoot the cover together! KAYLOR is the most powerful BFF now, so their covers will definitely become the hottest topic in the world.
到底哪家雜誌能這們厲害請到霉霉與KK呢?當然就是美版VOGUE,號稱史上最強的bff組合,登上vogue自然成為當月份全球最熱門的話題,而且Mikael Jansson拍的也不錯,裡面大片也好看,這個封面真的是太強了~(後來一大堆雜誌拍霉霉也沒這美)
10. ID magazine LGBTQi-D issue
ID has been my favorite magazine for a long time. I love how they collaborate art, music, film, social issue with fashion, making fashion magazines in-depth. This cover is about LGBTQ issue and it's a new attempt for a magazine to frankly talk about LGBTQ issue. 
我一直很喜歡id雜誌(為什麼要閉眼睛,請看他左上方的id不就是這個表情嘛?)它總是能把時尚與藝術音樂社會議題結合,讓雜誌不像個膚淺的教穿搭手冊,更是個與我們一起成長溝通的深度知識雜誌,外表穿的好看同時也培育我們心靈成長。這本是討論LGBTQ議題,整本很有創意的訪問不同的人對性別的看法,連大片也跟同志議題有相關,如果有空到英國旅行請一定要買id雜誌,內容的深度與雜誌大片水準都十分的讚!
