Readers of British Vogue’s December 2014 edition are lucky enough to have TWO covers to choose from when browsing the news stands, with perennial covergirl Kate Moss gracing the cover of two versions of the latest issue. (This issue marks Kate’s 79th/80th Vogue magazine cover to date!) Whilst both versions were shot by close friend and long-time collaborator Mario Testino, each one depicts the different nature of Kate: one is sultry and glamourous the other fresh-faced and natural.

Could it be that editor Alexandra Shulman simply couldn’t choose? Or is there a new trend in magazine covers afoot? In what is most likely a bid to capture the consumer’s attention away from digital media, magazines have adopted the bigger-is-better motto lately when it comes to selecting their cover, with multi-versions and multi-model cover photos becoming a huge trend. Earlier in the year Vogue Japan mercifully featured a reunion of 90’s supers on their cover, followed by US Vogue’s all-important September issue (9 ‘insta’ girls), and Vogue Italia’s September issue featuring a whopping FIFTY models on a fold out sepia-toned cover which is sure to be a record breaker!
