Cover Loving: Beckhams’ Grace Vogue Paris

Vogue Paris Beckham 2 Cover Loving: Beckhams Grace Vogue Paris %tag

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?

Cover Loving: Kate, Lara and Daria All Wear The Same Dress For New Look Vogue Paris

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!!!

Video Loving: Vogue Paris Does Wham

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.

Cover Loving: Kate Moss as David Bowie – Again

voguepariskate Cover Loving: Kate Moss as David Bowie   Again %tag
As you all will know by now I am an avid Vogue Paris reader, but I have to confess I am not sure about the December/January cover showing Kate Moss transformed into Ziggy Stardust. As a David Bowie tribute goes it is authentic, complete with the bright orange-hued mullet wig, but I kind of think that Vogue UK did a better job depicting Kate as Bowie on their May 2003 cover shot by Nick Knight.

One thing I do love though is the sparkly Balmain dress and her striking stare.

Also is Moss getting younger or have Paris Vogue gone a little crazy with the photoshop??

Vogue Paris: Oh No Carine Roitfeld Is Leaving

17vogue blog480 Vogue Paris: Oh No Carine Roitfeld Is Leaving %tag

This week one of my favourite magazines, Vogue Paris announced that its Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld is leaving, after 10-years she is leaving to focus on personal projects.

I am a huge fan of Vogue Paris, more so I think than the British and American editions, and I think in large it has to do with Carine’s influence on the magazine. For me it is the only Vogue that is completely chic in its editorial, taking plenty of risks and always seems to be one-step ahead of the competition!

Over the years, I have loved the special editions, the 90th anniversary issue with the gorgeous Lara Stone, the guest editors especially this month’s with Tom Ford, but for me it is always the one magazine I get excited about each month to see the fashion editorial spreads – always amazing styling, models and photographers.

“It’s 10 years that I’m editor of the magazine. I think it’s time to do something different,” explained Carine.

No word as yet on who will replace Carine, of course the rumours have already begun, maybe the former Russian Editor Aliona Doletskaya, but my money is on Vogue Paris’ Fashion Director Emmanuelle Alt. But whoever it is they have big shoes to fill!!

It is already a buzz across the internet:

I am still so excited about finally collecting my October issue of Vogue Paris, with my limited-edition photo portfolio at the weekend, and then I see this cover. How amazing does Natasha Poly look? She works cute and edgy at the same time and is the perfect choice to front the magazine’s Love & Peace spread shot by Mario Sorrenti.

OMG I haven’t been this excited for a magazine in a long time, but the 90th anniversary issue of Vogue Paris looks amazing, more so now I have seen this busom cover from Lara Stone.

The October issue of Vogue Paris is hits newsagents in France on September 27 and I have already prepped my person over the channel to pick my copy up!! The special anniversary issue has a whopping 624 pages and will be accompanied by a collector portfolio XXL 100 pages featuring the best shots from French Vogue’s history – I CANT WAIT!!!!

The magazine is also launching its first iPad application, which means that I have to increase my momentum to my boyfriend on why I need one!! The app features a mini movie directed by Steven Klein as well as Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld commenting on the portfolio collector and the behind-the-scenes of the beauty session of Mario Sorrenti.

But back to that amazing cover shot by Mert & Marcus, I knew breasts were in for autumn fashion with ladylike figures being the hottest accessory this season – but what I love is that gorgeous mask and collar – Lara looks stunning.

Roll on September 27!!
