See Every W Art Issue Cover, From Kim Kardashian to Cardi B

Over the past decade-plus of annual W Art Issues, there have been Internet-breaking covers (Kim Kardashian, nude except for silver body paint and Barbara Kruger’s handily placed text art); there have been covers that poked fun at the entire notion of the celebrity magazine cover (Richard Prince dedicating photos of Jennifer Aniston and Lindsay Lohan to himself), and covers that pretty much bathed in that celebrity (Brad Pitt photographing his then-wife, Angelina Jolie, at home with their kids); there have been covers that were as surreal (Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid being remade into “humanoid creatures” by Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin) as they were a joy to look at (George Clooney camouflaged by a world of Yayoi Kusama polka dots).

A Look at Every W Magazine Art Issue Cover, From Kim Kardashian to Cardi BIn November 2006, W launched its very first Art Issue, featuring a collaboration between the artist Richard Tuttle and the fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti.

In 2007, Richard Prince took celebrity stock photos and, in a sly commentary on pre–social media celeb culture, scribbled an autograph dedicated to himself on each one of the covers, featuring Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Lindsay Lohan, Julia Roberts, Jessica Simpson, and Britney Spears.

The first W Art Issue cover, from November 2006, was a collaboration between the artist Richard Tuttle and the photographer Mario Sorrenti.
