Who were THE KING AND QUEEN OF VOGUE EDITORIALS 2009?
|KARLIE KLOSS & PATRICK DEMARCHELIER|
THE TOP 12
in general descending order, not all Vogue editions are accounted for
all you need to know is that KarKlo and Demarchelier basically slaughtered everyone else
|Karlie Kloss||Patrick Demarchelier|
|Lara Stone||Steven Meisel|
|Sasha Pivovarova||Mario Testino|
|Constance Jablonski||David Sims|
|Raquel Zimmermann||Paolo Kudacki|
|Daria Werbowy||Jacques Dequeker|
|Anna Jagodzinska||Solve Sundsbo|
|Eniko Mihalik||Terry Richardson|
|Jourdan Dunn||Daniel Jackson|
|Lily Donaldson||Mario Sorrenti|
|Natasha Poly||Alisdair McLellan|
|Iris Strubegger||Alexi Lubomirski|
The Top 12 are based on original editorials, reprints don't count so too bad.
While you're letting the shock wear off, here are the Princes and Princesses:
1. VALERIJA EROKHINA & MAX DOYLE
|2. Holly Thompson
3. Myf Shepherd
|2. Troyt Coburn, Todd Barry
3. Patrick Demarchelier (by virtue of reprints)
Relatively low number of models and photographers (even lower if you don't count reprints).
They like to keep things amongst their fellow Aussies.
1. LUANA TEIFKE & JACQUES DEQUEKER
|2. Carolina Thaler
3. 10-way tie
|2. Gui Paganini
3. Fabio Bartelt
Vogue Brazil uses Brazilian models for the most part, and Luana won out by a country mile.
They also like to keep things mainly between the 3 listed photographers.
1. DU JUAN & DANIEL JACKSON
|2. Liu Wen
3. Constance Jablonski
|2. Camilla Akrans, Lachlan Bailey
3. Kai Z Feng
Du and Liu kind of kicked collective ass.
However, the top photographer was a really tight race.
1. HANA, DEWI & SATOSHI SAIKUSA
|2. Marina Perez, Masha Novoselova, Carmen Kass
3. Pretty much everyone else
|2. Michelle Ferrera, Paolo Kudacki, Gonzalo Machado, James Macar
3. Tony Kim, Alix Malka, Nicholas Moore, Nico
The tallies for both models and photographers was almost too close to tell.
I don't think anyone was used more than 4 times this year.
Also, Satoshi appears to be shy.
1. HEIDI KLUM & ALEXI LUBOMIRSKI
|2. Masha Novoselova
3. 7-way tie
|2. Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer
3. Paolo Kudacki
Heidi's only appearance was in her June issue, and that was all it took to get #1.
As far as models go, Vogue Germany certainly likes to keep it Kraut, but doesn't use them very consistently.
Alexi Lubomirski was the clear winner, and definitely the finest looking.
1. KARLIE, IRIS & STEVEN MEISEL
|2. Sasha Pivovarova
3. Eniko Mihalik, Viktoriya Sasonkina
|2. Aldridge, Kadel, Luchford, McDean, Roversi, Summerton
3. R. Burbridge, G. Lotus, S. Sundsbo, E. von Unworth, T. Walker
Vogue Italia is literally a clusterfuck of models, they definitely used the most.
They also use a good number of photographers pretty consistently but Meisel will always win, we all know that.
1. SASHA, KARLIE & SARAH SILVER
|2. Caroline Trentini, Daria Werbowy
3. Coco Rocha
|2. Patrick Demarchelier
3. Steven Meisel
Approximately 75% of the editorials were reprints, and as far as I can tell no model from an original edit was used more than once. So, model tallies were based off reprints.
Demarchelier had two times as many editorials as Sarah, however, all save one were reprints. So... I'm letting Sarah win because she was actually used a lot.
1. TAO OKAMOTO & NATHANIEL GOLDBERG
|2. Constance Jablonski
3. Magdalena F, Eniko M, Anja R, Aline W
|2. C. Akrans, D. Jackson, J. Olins, G. Sgura, S. Sundsbo
3. Too many to list
Vogue Nippon doesn't really like to play favourites. Tao has her November issue to thank for her top spot.
No model or photographer was used more than 5 times this year.
1. LARA STONE & PATRICK DEMARCHELIER
|2. Raquel Zimmermann
3. Malgosia B, Eniko M, Natasha P, Daria W
|2. Inez & Vinoodh
3. Cedric Buchet, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti
Even without Lara's February issue, she would still have the #1 spot (though only just).
Demarchelier just barely beat out Inez & Vinnodh.
1. 11-WAY TIE & TERRY TSIOLIS
|2. Everyone else, literally.
||2. KT Auleta, Matt Irwin
3. Tom Munro
There is zilch favouritism amongst models. I don't think any one model was used more than twice.
On the other hand, Vogue Russia uses very few photographers, and they definitely have their favourites.
Also... I couldn't find a picture of Terry.
|2. Malgosia Bela, Lily Donaldson
3. Anna Jagodzinska, Lara Stone
|2. Mario Testino
3. Tim Walker, Kai Z Feng
Vogue UK had the smallest number of models and photographers used overall.
Karlie just barely got the top spot. Patrick Demarchelier managed to dominate.
|2. Raquel Zimmermann
3. Anna Jagodinzksa
|2. Norman Jean Roy, David Sims
3. Annie Leibovitz, Raymond Meier, Steven Meisel, Mario Testino
Raquel may have come second, but she didn't even have half as many editorials and features as KarKlo did.
Vogue US used almost as few photographers overall as UK.
It stands as a sort of microcosm for Vogue's overall editorials efforts, but that shouldn't come as much of a surprise.
TOP 3 REPRINT QUEENS
1. SASHA PIVOVAROVA
2. LILY DONALDSON
3. DARIA WERBOWY
Korea and Portugal's stats were incomplete, so I only included them in the overall tallies
There was dick-all info for Vogue Hellas, India, or Taiwan to make any a decent list.
Tallies were based on info from TFS, not the magazines directly and are therefore neither perfect nor infallible. So no bitching or else I'll have to get the hose.
