This pic from a Vogue Italia editorial from 2005 is simply gorgeous, and genius. ‘Make-over Madness’ is photographed by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia’s July issue 2005.
Talented stylist Marie Chaix has styled this power editorial, ‘Chic Athlétique’, for the June/July 2013 issue of Vogue Paris. Model Hilary Rhoda is photographed by Terry Richardson and looks smashing in Céline Pre-fall pieces (I am obsessed with that buckle belt…), as well as all of the boots (!). The Céline pair with gold front and laces are killers, but I am very fond of the ones with low heel from Reed Krakoff, the black pair above – they would look gorgeous to knee-lenght skirts for the Fall. Chaix has captured loads of trends for the Fall 2013 in this editorial. Waist belt, knee-long skirts and knee-high boots, gloves and white – all trends that we probably will see a lot more of.
Okey, I know, another editorial from the November issue of Vogue Paris, but simply what can I say, Norwegian Iselin Steiro looks utterly glam in Los Angeles working those Hermès bags to perfection, and not t mention that striped resort look from Chloé.

This editorial, styled by Emmanuelle Alt, is featured in the Vogue May 2013 issue and photographed by talented duo Inez & Vinoodh. Freja is one of my all time favorite models, there is just something about her look that is so flawless. For this editorial she is wearing couture and show pieces Elie Saab, Giambattista Valli, Chanel and more. My absolute favorite looks are the one from Armani Privé (above) and the Gaultier Paris (below). I love how she work the knotted sequin top with the slitted skirt and the trousers underneath. True perfection, and I wouldn’t mind strolling around in something similar this summer. I totally need to look after a skirt like that! Although maybe a bit shorter, but still. Just gorgeous to a loose fitted tee and flats sandals.
Géraldine Saglio has styled beautiful Edita Vilkeviciute for Vogue Paris Supplement June & July 2013. I love that olive/military green color in the summer, so beautiful to sun-kissed skin and golden jewelry… Reminds me of that I have to look for a loose-fitted army shirt. Editorial photographed by Gilles Bensimon.

I must say I am starting to dig these boots from the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 collection. I wasn’t a big fan of the pimped-out ones when seeing the collection for the very first time. Somehow I just couldn’t cope with the fact that such a classy, timeless and fabulous brand as Saint Laurent when a bit mainstream and ‘hard-core’ showing of stuff that I basically could find at, well, Topshop (nothing wrong with Topshop though). I do love the fact that I have seen a lot of cool, timeless and classic pieces from the Saint Laurent in stores and web-shops. Apparently Hedi Slimane has created a ‘Permanent Collection’ that will be available all year around and which include pieces like leather jackets, denim, t-shirts and duffle bags that are all a great foundation in a wardrobe. I do like the idea of dividing the brand in such collections and lines. For the this campaign the creative director has captured Danish Freja-Beha Erichsen in the new Saint Laurent store in Paris (and the collection was a celebration of this new opening). Anyway the boots in this editorial is a pair I wouldn’t mind at all for this fall. By the way, great looks in this editorial from the latest issue of Vogue China, June 2013. Eliza Cummings looks effortless smart captured by Daniel Jackson.
On my mind for the moment: super stylish Marie-Amélie Sauvé who is former stylist for Balenciaga (worked close with Nicolas Ghesquière through his year at the house and was his longtime muse). Starting off her career at Vogue Paris as an intern in the eighties, Sauvé came back for a position at the magazine under the Carine Roitfeld-era, and continued on with American Vogue as member of team Anna Wintour. Her currently position is as W magazine’s senior fashion editor as well as freelance and always ends-up teaming with Ghesquière. Sauvé always look impeccable cool in in feminine, modern and trend-updated pieces mainly from Balenciaga and she has definitely a look to get inspired from. Below you can see some of her editorial work.
