Editors select their most significant covers from the past 12 months.
Nicky Briger, Editor, marie claire
My favourite two marie claire covers of 2017 promoted an issue very close to our hearts: marriage equality. For years, marie claire has passionately pushed for the legalisation of same-sex marriage and in June we partnered with Airbnb for the national “Until We All Belong” campaign. We enlisted the support of 15 prominent Australians for a 10-page portfolio.
Actor Jessica Marais agreed to appear on the cover – as a fierce supporter of marriage equality, she was the perfect choice. Months later, we decided to take a leap of faith and produce a limited-edition “Australia says yes!” cover-wrap. Our December cover hit metro stands within 24 hours of the news. It was fantastic to be able to celebrate this history-making moment.
