Justin Bieber on the cover of Forbes! Funke Akindele all glammed up! See our pick of the Top 10 magazine covers of 2012!

by Doyin Jaiyesimi

There were many amazing covers in 2012 that made headlines and took our breath away.

As part of our #2012Review, series, here are the top 10 cover we loved in 2012:

Vogue US:

We absolutely love this special anniversary issue with Lady Gaga. The avant garde diva pulls off an alluring look in this amazing purple fish-tail off shoulder dress with make up and well-styled hair to match. The cover is simply breath-taking.



Mania is synonymous with high fashion and excellent photography and this cover with Nike Oshinowo is no different. We love the whole look and what we can we say about the hair…simply amazing.



Glamour’s style issue featuring a sultry looking Taylor Swift comes in at number three. We love the simplicity of this cover and the understated sexy that Taylor oozes.


Y! Magazine:

We love Funke Oloyede and we adore her on this cover of Y! Magazine. Don’t you just love that dress? And what about the choice of colours and the presentation?



Complete Fashion:

Complete fashion released many eye-catching covers in 2012 but this cover with Dolapo Oni is the best of them all.

We love Dolapo’s look and the styling was top notch. We expect more exciting covers from Complete Fashion in 2013.


Vanity Fair:

Provocative – that’s the word that best describes this Vanity Fair cover. With a concept that may offend the taste of those who are on the conservative side, we commend the creative team for its execution.



The latest cover of Genevieve is very much in tune with the season. December is the season of weddings in Nigeria and Eku and Dami dazzle as brides on the cover. Very sweet.



Forbes makes our top ten list with this cover featuring Justin Bieber. Bieber nails it with the quirky look on his face and of-course his well-groomed hair is eye-catching.



Disney sweetheart, Selena Gomez, shines of the cover of Elle in a gold sequin dress. We love the choice of colours and the background of the cover.



A cover with Denzel is surely going to be a winner but we love the fact that GQ kept it simple with this cover. From the well-tailored suit to Denzel striking pose… this cover is just perfect.
