So today the May issue of Vogue Paris hit the stands. Can’t wait to grab this issue, the editorials that I have seen looks amazing. In this issue focus lies on the Cannes Film Festival as well as Punk and the exhibition of ’Punk: Chaos to Couture’. The exhibition that will open at the MET in N.Y this May was also the inspiration of the Style.com Print’s third issue, something I wrote about here. I am really curious about this expo especially since both Style.com/Print and Vogue Paris has taking it under their wings for their latest issues, and I would love to see it. Freja Beha Erichsen is featured on the cover in a punk chic look shot by the amazing duo Inez & Vinoodh. Anyway, I couldn’t help myself to post an editorial that I liked from this issue styled by Emmanuelle Alt from one of the location they been to, the Sahara desert. I love the sport influences and Andreea Diaconu looks amazing.
Emily Di Danato looks absolutely stunning in this watch-editorial in Vogue Paris April 2013 by Giampaolo Sgura. But, it was not her, but the watches I wanted to mention. Vogue Paris is amazing in finding beautiful, classic and timeless pieces for their editorials, and in this one you can see it is no exception. I love the Hublot watch as well as the Chanel link-watch in silver (the last picture). I love my current watch, and use it every day. Although I wouldn’t mind updating it with an alligator leather strap… But if I would go for a new one a would definitely want the Chanel one, or a Jaeger-LeCoultre (the Reverso is a favorite!).
‘Peru gives you vertigo. Between the heights of Huascarán and the beaches of Lima, there is a difference of 7000 metres. For this issue, we made the jump with Mario Testino.’ For the April issue of Vogue Paris the magazine has travelled around the world to a very exotic location, more specific Peru in South America. The cover features Isabeli Fontana, as well as in an editorial inside a long with Kate Moss. Special guest for this issue is Mario Testino and it is in his homeland the pictures are taken. Inside the magazine Testino not only takes Vogue Paris on a personal tour, but also reveals his favorite spots. The issue are available in new stands in a couple of days.
This spring is all about the high heeled knee-high gladiator sandal. Altuzurra showed some amazing ones, as well as Salvatore Ferragamo, Alexander Wang and Jimmy Choo. In the latest issue of Vogue Paris Natasha Poly is styled by Géraldine Saglio in thigh high boots for their ‘I love New York’ editorial. Very bohemian and goregous 70s looks where we can spot the stunning Ferragemo boots and the S/S13 Altuzurra ones. Above you’ll see the Salvatore Ferragamo laced-up boots that is also featured in the editorial underneath.
I totally fell head over heels with this previous editorial, ‘New York’ from the latest Vogue Paris. That is why I had to throw some things together to re-create a mix of the looks in the editorial. I just love the idea of taking on the Grunge-style in a bit more sophisticated way. Like pairing slippers with a classy trench coat or an elegant suit jacket in satin. Or giving the pleated/checked pieces an lighter feeling, like the Dries Van Noten shirt and trousers in checked wowen silk. Mixing heavy materials like wool and denim, with luxurious ones like silk and mesh, creates a flawless and very wearable look. On top left you’ll find: trousers from Theory, silver metallic jacket from Rochas, crepe and silk-blended satin tuxedo jacket from Guilietta, suede waist-belt from Alaïa, slippers with fur details from Céline S/S13, socks from Falke and leopard gloves from Alaïa.
The editorial ‘New York’ in Vogue Paris February 2013 by David Sims is just amazing. Andreea Diaconu is styled by Emmanuelle Alt in New York City. What can I say? The Dries Van Noten silk plaided pants paired with that checked silk shirt are perfection, as well as the checked trench coat styled with washed out boyfriend jeans, slouchy leather gloves and the combination of teal socks with slippers.
I can’t get enough of Géraldine Saglio and her styling for the moment, and I really like her work for the latest issue of Vogue Paris December/January 2012/2013 (their smacked Christmas issue). She has not only styled iconic supermodel Christy Turlington shot by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, but also Malgosia Bela in a super cool editorial inside Ferber Studios photographed by Lachlan Bailey. So I have picked some of my favourite looks from the Christmas issue in this post. First out is Christy: love the tube top with a simple pair of black pants with a statement-belt, like this one from Balmain. Again, here is that belly peek….and perfectly styled with a pair of ankle-short black trousers. Super nice to add a pair of white shoes with that, even though I am a bit tired of those white pointy Céline pumps… In the ‘Le Ciel dans un Chambre’-editorial Malgosia looks super fly in a striped top paired with a red suede skirt as well as in the flared denim pants styled with a white thick knitwear. And hey, I want that Gucci horse-bit necklace in gold!
Special guest editor for the Vogue Paris December/January 2012/2013 issue is no more than the first lady of France, Carla Bruni. With her bohemian taste she shares her inpirations, musical preferences and more in this Christmas doubble-issue. As well as modelling for one of the editorials photgraphed by Mario Sorrenti, Carla Bruni also fronts the cover, snapped by Mert & Marcus, looking super fresh with her amazing fringe and a washed-out denim shirt. Editor in chief, Emmanuelle Alt, is a very good friend of Carla, and she said that “It has been a real pleasure to create this special Christmas issue with an old friend“. Pretty cool to have that opportunity. This highly maximized issue hits stores today, on Decemer 3rd.
Inspiration times three with pics by Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer. Shot for Vogue Paris (different issues from 2011-2012). Magdalena Frackowiak looks effertless chic in a knitted pullover styled with simple bracelets, Kendra Spears looks amazing in a lbd paired with a classic pair of pumps and, love the look of her above, aviators, peacock jacket and a jumper. As simple as that.
