The girl who landed two back-to-back Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers is now on the cover of Vogue. Kate Upton, the blonde bombshell the magazine is calling "the hottest supermodel on earth" was photographed for its June cover by Mario Testino. And in it, she's wearing — what else? — a bathing suit. But Upton's first Vogue cover isn't the only first among the glossy array of June's magazine fronts. Actress and industry darling Kerry Washington is on the June 2013 cover of Elle — the first time she's covered a major American fashion magazine. The cover, shot by Horst Diekgerdes, shows Washington in a look from Marc Jacobs.
But even though we've only just begun to dip our toes into the month of May, a number of beautiful covers have already trickled in. Take Carey Mulligan's June cover for Harper's Bazaar UK, for example. The actress, who channelled The Great Gatsby's Daisy Buchanan on the May cover of American Vogue, takes an angelic turn here in a baby pink coat from Prada's Spring 2013 collection. There are some other stunners, including Gwyneth Paltrow for Glamour UK, Karlie Kloss for Vogue Japan, and Nicolas Ghesquiere and Charlotte Gainsbourg for 032c, in which the designer discusses life after Balenciaga.
A look at those covers and more, here in the gallery.
