british vogue december 2012 cover

Just because the colder months are fast approaching doesn't mean you can't add a bit of pop to your life! For the December issue of Vogue UK Alexandra Shulman decided it was appropriate to pay tribute to all things pop - such as pop music, pop-up stores and pop culture.

"When I came up with the idea, it was not because I had spotted a root in fashion terms - apart from the somewhat trippy Prada and Miu Miu autumn/winter collections - but now that I've been watching the new-season shows, pop culture references have been bursting out everywhere," wrote Shulman in her editor's letter.

"So, as you look at the cacophony of colour, print and excess that this Vogue holds, take note: you are looking at your future, or at least next spring's wardrobe."

Starring Natalia Vodianova on the cover, the Russian model was photographed by Mario Testino for British Vogue magazine. Carrying on the pop vibe, Natalia dons a brightly coloured floral dress coat. The issue also includes a piece on One Direction who were followed around by Vogue features director Jo Ellison when she lived out the dream of many a teenage girl by spending a day with the world's current favourite boy band.

Keep an eye out for the December issue of Vogue UK which hits newsstands on November 3.
