Christmas Eve

So the big day is tomorrow. Christmas is a little bitter-sweet as I think it can be a happy time for most but also a sad time. To celebrate Christmas the fashion way, here's a look back at the last ten years of Vogue December Issues. 

December 2000
Kate Moss shot by Nick Knight. I love the cover with the silhouette, reminds me of the old Vogue Covers

December 2001
Another Kate Moss cover shot by Nick Knight. Love love love how clean the cover is and the red really stands  and Kate looks so different from usual.

December 2002
Elton John and Liz Hurley shot by Mario Testino. I love this cover  as it' so fun and i love the use of the piano. This screams Christmas!

December 2003 
A very young looking Kylie Minogue shot by Nick Knight. I love how she's sat in a champagne glass/chair. This cover is very millenium 2000's with the use of silver.

December 2004
A big fan of Sienna Miller so I love this cover shot by Mario Testino. I think the colours purple and silver work really well together and the pantomime font they have used.

December 2005
Gwyneth Paltrow shot by Regan Cameron for a very non festive christmas issue. The december issue is all about glitz and glamour and Vogue have failed to impress with this cover.

December 2006
To celebrate Vogue's 90th birthday, a collection of different covers. I love the concept and the way it turned out, celebrating both old and new covers.

December 2007
Sienna Miller once again shot by Nick Knight. I love this cover with the use of silver and the text chosen. This is my favourite christmas cover and by far the most festive.

December 2008
Kate Moss by Nick Knight. I love the colours used and the romanticism of it all. Kate looks beautiful and I love that the cover folded out to create a bigger picture.

December 2009
Lara Stone shot by Mario Testino. I love the colours used with the white black and pale pink but the one thing that really bothers me about the cover is that Lara's corset is too tight for her and it barely covers her *ahem* assets. This could have been stunning if it had been tight right size.

December 2010
I really dislike this cover. I find Emma Watson, shot by Mario Testino, irrelevant and a girl who got lucky. I dislike her hair and there's too much going on, on the cover. Too much text and too much gold. Vogue's November issue would have been a stunning choice for a cover. You can see that here

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and that Santa brings you what you wanted! For today's Friday Song, something festive. This is my favourite Christmas song ever! I love the lyrics!

"Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby do you recognise me?
Well it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

(Happy Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again"
