Notably, the same celebrities and models cropped up numerous times across Vogue, Glamour, Tatler, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, InStyle and Marie Claire with stars such as Taylor Swift, Cheryl Cole, Jessie J and Gwen Stefani racking up multiple front pages.
Interestingly three covers saw men take focus, including Prince Harry for Tatler November 2012 and Harry Potter veteran Daniel Radcliffe for Glamour July 2013.
Cosmopolitan was the most diverse with three non-white cover stars, while InStyle, Tatler and Marie Claire all had two.
It should be noted that while the majority of magazines mentioned had just 12 covers, Cosmopolitan had two December 2012 covers - one featuring the Kardashian sisters and another which pictured boy band One Direction.
