Harper’s Bazaar’s Twilight Cover Named Best of the Year The cover of the December 2009 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, featuring the lead actors of the hit movie franchise Twilight, was chosen by customers as “Cover of the Year.” This is the second year that has hosted the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) Best Cover Contest, and the fifth year that ASME has presented the awards. The announcement was made today by Larry Hackett, ASME President and Managing Editor, People, at the American Magazine Conference currently underway in Chicago, Illinois.

Twelve category winners, chosen by customers during the first round of public voting, competed for the “Cover of the Year” honor.  The Harper’s Bazaar cover, which won the “Best Vampire” category before it was chosen “Cover of the Year,” depicts Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in a rare shot together. While the epic image played on the idea of courtship, it was given extra heat due to their real-life romance.

Kimbra Hickey (‘Hands of Twilight’) wants a part in ‘Breaking Dawn’ As you know, Hickey’s hands are the ones featured on the cover of Twilight, and she has been very active in the community – particularly by appearing at Twilight convention stops and posing for pictures with apples. (Her hands were also photographed with a rose for the cover of New Moon, but the picture wasn’t used for the second book in the Saga.) She’s also on Twitter and communicates with Twilight fans there.

She recently did an interview with the New York Post about her part in the Twilight world, and she mentioned her interest in transitioning from hand (and foot) model to actress via Breaking Dawn.

“‘If I could get a little background part, it would be fantastic . . . even if they only wanted my hands in it.'”

I really liked that photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar, now that I think about it the cast has had really good photoshoots with them. What did you think of the cover? What did you think of the pictures of the photoshoot?

What did you think of Twilight’s hand model wanting to appear in Breaking Dawn? Who would you cast her as? Join us in the discussion!
