Yes, that is in fact former editor of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld, looking fierce on the cover of i-D magazine‘s Fall 2011 issue. There aren’t many other people in the fashion industry that would make more sense next to the “Dream Big” tagline, are there? The cover was captured by everyone’s most controversial big dreamer, Terry Richardson. The issue will hit newsstands in four days (September 21st).
Holy monkeys. How unbelievable does Sasha Pivovarova (The Universe’s Next Top Model, to be real) look on the October 2011 cover of Vogue Paris? She is glowing in a Marilyn Monroe-feeling Atelier Versace number; props to photographer geniuses Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
…in stockings and sandy Louboutins! August 2011’s Vogue Paris cover is awesome, no? We have a Dominatrix-esque Lara Stone, photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, searching the skies next to a blue cadillac as a plane flies over her head. Princess Leia on the beach? Whatever the inspiration is…I love it.
In a world of opinionated fashion followers, industry professionals were prepared to see an abundance of judgement over Emmanuelle Alt‘s first few issues of Vogue Paris. Unexpectedly, the only judgement I’m sending out is positive. Look at this shoot – “Impulsion Fluo” – from their May 2011 issue. Shot by Hans Feurer, we have a barely-photoshopped Sasha Pivovarova styled in the best hues imaginable, as picked by stylist Marie Chaix. The colours are outstanding and the realness of her body – the pink skin, the (always hidden) hair on her legs – is a breath of fresh fashion air. It’s beauty. View Post
Kate Moss has just been granted the historical honour of gracing Emmanuelle Alt‘s second cover of Vogue Paris since becoming editor-in-chief. The May 2011 cover pulls off a risky interpretation of the phrase ‘must-have item‘ by using faceless models to grab Moss from the edges. Fun fact? Princess Kate (…at least to the fashion world) was on Carine Roitfeld‘s first Vogue Paris cover ten years ago.
