It has been a while since I have actually posted something on my blog that hasn’t had something to do with my wedding, sorry about that but I hope you understand that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I just had to share. So, before I bombard you with photographs from my UK celebrations that fingers crossed you all want to see, I thought I would showcase this amazing editorial from the latest issue of Vogue Paris with real-life designer Barbie dolls.
If there was ever a time I wish I could read fluent French it is now, as the December issue of Vogue Paris not only has an amazing cover featuring Victoria and David Beckham, but it is also guest-edit by the designer.
There are two great covers shot by photographers Inez and Vinoodh, each features an intimate moment between Victoria and David, and I love them both. What surprises me most about the covers is how Victoria captures the attention over her hunky hubbie, plus how good does she look in green – she should wear that colour more often.
“We entrusted the editor’s chair for this issue to a woman who revealed herself to be the absolute opposite of her public image while we were working together,” revealed Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris. “Spontaneous and full of humour, she’s modest, with a healthy dose of ambition. And like all those who are truly passionate about what they do, Victoria is a perfectionist.”
So what can you expect from Victoria’s edit – well apparently a look into her world from her family to afternoon tea with Valentino, as well as a look backstage at her spring/summer 2014 show, and a few of her Christmas memories. There is also an interview with her discussing her relationship with David and a fashion shoot by David Sims called “In Bed With Victoria”.
Roll on December 2 when Paris Vogue hits newsstands.
Which cover do you prefer? And will you be buying a copy next month?
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.
