16 Fabulous Fantasy “Vogue” Covers

None of these celebrities have fronted the American fashion magazine yet*. But as these covers show, they all really should.

1. Jennifer Lawrence.

Vogue connections: Surprisingly few, it would seem (other than Jen’s attending this year’s Met Ball). But if she’s not covering Vogue this November to coincide with the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire then Anna Wintour really is President Snow.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: Teen Vogue May 2011; W October 2012; British Vogue November 2012; Elle December 2012; Vanity Fair February 2013.

2. Nicki Minaj.

Vogue connections: Nicki’s already featured in Vogueall smurfed up. And she sat right next to Anna Wintour at a fashion show once.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: V January 2011; W November 2011; Wonderland February/March 2012; Elle April 2013; Teen Vogue June/July 2013.

3. Kim Kardashian.

Vogue connections: She once had dinner at Anna’s house. She’s in deep.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: W November 2010; Harper’s Bazaar March 2011; Marie Claire December 2011; New York magazine’s fall 2012 fashion issue; L’Officiel Hommes Spring 2013.

4. Lena Dunham.

Vogue connections: Another of this year’s Met Ball guests, Lena’s otherwise a tenuous Voguette. It’s hard to imagine Anna sitting down with a kale pizza and binge-watching Girls, you see… but stranger things have happened in the world of high fashion.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: Interview February 2013.

5. Zooey Deschanel.


Vogue connections: Sure, Anna won’t watch Girls but it’s totally plausible that she’d curl up (with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a small bowl of toffee popcorn) in her custom Chanel sweatpants and giggle away at those kooky kids on New Girl. I mean, that “New Girl in Town” cover line writes itself.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: Dazed & Confused December 2006; Marie Claire May 2012; British Cosmopolitan July 2012; Glamour February2013; InStyle April 2013.

Vogue connections: Four seasons on the Top Model judging panel with Andre Leon Talley. (Not to mention that she roped Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani to offer part of the show’s prize package for a while.) And yet somehow she can’t even score an editorial cameo — what gives?
Other notable fashion magazine covers: New York Times magazine June 2008; Harper’s Bazaar September 2008*; I Love You Winter 2011; Singaporean Harper’s Bazaar January 2013.

*Tyra dressed up as Michelle Obama for the accompanying editorial. She really did.

7. Jessica Chastain.

Vogue connections: Well, she and Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci are the huggy, kissy-kind of friends, so that’s a start.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: AnOther magazine spring/summer 2012; T magazine Style Issue Summer 2012; Vanity Fair September 2012; Marie Claire December 2012; Vogue Germany January 2013; British GQ January 2013; W January 2013; InStyle February 2013.

8. Zoe Saldana.

Vogue connections: It really shouldn’t matter — JUST PUT ZOE SALDANA ON YOUR COVER, FASHION MAGAZINES. She’s, among other admirable attributes, incredibly well dressed.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: Glamour April 2010; Nylon April 2010; Allure June 2013; British InStyle June 2013.

9. Florence Welch.

Vogue connections: Anna has been caught on film — at the recent New York Great Gatsby premiere’s red carpet — saying “I’ll talk to you inside, Florence” after the latter waved hello, just like you would when you pass your high school girlfriends in the hallway on the way to calculus because, seriously, who pays attention there? So that’s that; also, one time they went to the bathroom together and talked about cute boys. (Also, more realistically, Florence is one of the most interestingly stylish musicians of the moment.)
Other notable fashion magazine covers: Nylon June/July 2011; Vogue Japan October 2011; Interview October 2011; British Vogue January 2012; British Harper’s Bazaar July 2012.

10. Amanda Seyfried.

Vogue connections: She played a Mean Girl… can you see where this is going?
Other notable fashion magazine covers: Teen Vogue August 2008; Allure September 2009; Teen Vogue June/July 2010; Interview March 2011; Elle April 2011; W October 2011; Korean W February 2012.

11. Lana Del Rey.


Vogue connections: Sources tell BuzzFeed Fashion that, when the Vogue office goes “wild” and plays music on Friday afternoons, Anna always requests “Born to Die” put on repeat. She then retreats into the fashion cupboard for a little while and, after she emerges, there are always small marks — possibly tear stains, though this is unconfirmed — on assorted couture gowns.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: T magazine Style Issue Spring 2012; Interview Germany February 2012; British Vogue March 2012; Zoo magazine Summer 2012; Vogue Australia October 2012; Numero Tokyo March 2013; L’Officiel Paris April 2013.

12. Elle & Dakota Fanning.

Vogue connections: Oh, you just know Elle and Anna are besties on Facebook or whatever social network all the cool kids are on these days.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: Teen Vogue December/January 2010; V January/February 2010; Dazed & Confused September 2010; W December 2011; British Elle February 2012; Teen Vogue February 2012; Wonderland April/May 2012.

13. Tilda Swinton.

Vogue connections: Tilda’s fashion credentials are not easily bested. She’s currently the star of an amazing Chanel campaign, and she’s very good friends with Haider Ackermann. She can do no wrong, sartorially; basically, she’s Tilda Swinton. Bow down.

Vogue connections: Posh technically covered Vogue already, along with Create a website/files/2011/03/thumb11.jpg”>her fellow Spice Girls back in January 2000. (Anna later said she regretted the cover, which is a terribly rude admission. After all, “Friendships Never End”) Anyway, now she’s one of the most fashiony fashion people ever.
Other notable fashion magazine covers: i-D January 2004; British Elle December 2005; W August 2007; Elle January 2008; British Vogue April 2008; Allure August 2008; Harper’s Bazaar January 2009; Russian Vogue February 2009; Elle October 2009; British Harper’s Bazaar December 2009; Vogue Turkey August 2010; Marie Claire November 2010; British Vogue February 2011; Numero Tokyo March 2012; British Harper’s Bazaar May 2012; Interview Germany June/July 2012; British Elle March 2013. (That’s a lot of covers.)

15. The Olsen twins.

Vogue connections: The twins have covered a special “best dressed” Vogue supplement, and they’ve won CFDA awards for their label The Row. But it’ll probably still be a good while before they forgive the greater Vogue team for this stilted photo.

16. Katy Perry.
