I had been wondering how long it would take Emmanuelle Alt to place her own stamp on Vogue Paris it has been a staggering 18-months since she succeeded Carine Roitfeld as editor in chief and it seems she wanted to wait for a September issue to showcase a new fresh vibe for one of my favourite magazines.
The new cleaner, airier layout, with remodelled typography has taken its inspiration from Vogue Paris’ look in the Sixties and Seventies, I have a number of vintage Vogue Paris magazines from then and I am excited to see it in print.
To launch the new look Vogue Paris the magazine has shot three collectors’ covers, featuring three supermodels Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone, all snapped by Mert & Marcus, all wearing the same Dolce & Gabbana black dress, and all sporting the same slicked back hair and red lippy – yep identical covers. So basically it is a fashion face-off between Kate, Daria and Lara to see who can wear the dress best!!!
Vogue Paris September issue hits newsstands on August 23 – I think I will be reaching for Lara’s cover – what about you?
My love for Vogue Paris goes way back, my copy of the 90th anniversary is one of my prized possessions, but I have to admit that I was a little worried for my fav International mag when Carine Roitfeld left the title – but when Emmanuelle Alt decided to lip-synch to Wham as part of the relaunch of Vogue.fr she most certainly got my vote!!!
From the all-white outfit, the dodgy dance moves, the supermodel backing singers, and the Paris Vogue staff as the crowd – this is one completely cheesy-but-amazing video and I think I actually prefer Emmanuelle’s version of Wham’s Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go. Oh and I totally prefer the Vogue emblazoned t-shirts than the ‘Choose Life’ shirts that George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley – is it wrong that I want one???
I love how this video not only highlights Vogue Paris’ amazing new website, which has a Tumblr feel to it now, but it also brings Emmanuelle to the limelight just ahead of fashion month.
Well played Vogue Paris – well played Emmanuelle – I love it.
I do love spring magazine covers, and this is a great example of why.
This is the first cover from new Vogue Paris’ Editor Emmanuelle Alt, featuring the lovely Gisele, who looks striking in a gorgeous Dolce&Gabbana white lace mini-dress, for the April cover shot by Inez & Vinoodh.
No matter how much I love this dress, the model and the fresh white vibe, come on why did they need to photoshop her legs like that??
