2014 in Dazed covers

Whether Kendall Jenner was topping the Dazed 100 or Lupita Nyong’o was fronting our Girls Rule issue – here’s 2014’s year in covers

CAREY MULLIGAN

Kicking off the year was January's Carey Mulligan cover, shot by Rankin. Fronting our Modern Myths issue, she talked us through her role in the folk film of the decade.

LUPITA NYONG’O

Girls Rule! Lupita Amondi Nyong'o carried 2014 in the palm of her hand, and in this, her first ever magazine cover, she tells us about starring in 12 Years A Slave and about her role as feminist icon.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON

The first issue of our new – seasonal focus was a shoe-in. Scarlett Johansson – an outsider in the A-list, and the star of our favourite film of 2014 – let us get under her skin one night in Paris.

THE OUTSIDERS

Fashion rebels collided with the Belgian New Wave for Spring Summer 2015, as the iconic photographer Willy Vanderperre shot a 50-page fashion portfolio and Jamie Bochert and Mariacarla Boscono took on the establishment – and won.

FKA TWIGS

How one woman and her gang of London rebels took over London: for the Summer issue of Dazed, we went all in on Dalston's greatest soul singer. As well as cramming an issue full of her collaborators like Jesse Kanda and krump crew Wet Wipez, we let her take over the video section, with her self-directed videos cementing her status as an auteur for our times.

STATES OF INDEPENDENCE

When we came back in Autumn, we came back refreshed after our road trip across the states. Having spent since the 4th July celebrating the very best of American independents on Dazed Digital, this issue, fronted by two voices of youth, Binx and Natalie Westling, was the ultimate handbook to creativity stateside.

NICKI MINAJ

Few rappers have dominated public discourse quite like Nicki Minaj this year, but for her Dazed cover, shot by Jeff Bark, saw her play a more sedate pace of life. In an issue themed around “Twisted Reality and Twisted Fantasy”, she told us about why being the first female rapper to hit $500 million would be a victory for all women.

KENDALL JENNER

Winter 2014's Dazed 100 was a landmark list of the most pivotal people changing style culture, released at the decade's midpoint. For number 1, there was no debating: Kendall Jenner's seismic impact on the world of fashion and celebrity pushed her to the top, and onto the cover of our last issue of the year.
