Laetitia Casta And Noémie Lenoir Vogue Paris June-July 2008 By Mario Testino

  • Pin it

Vogue Paris has a double cover issue for two months. Given it’s about two summer months, I guess even advertisers are in holiday. Thus the two covergirls are, I’m sure accidentally, both, L’Oréal girls: Laetitia Casta and Noémie Lenoir.

Now if we’re to see a dark cover for summer issues, dark and over-makeup-ed models wearing fall-winter clothes (Chanel 08), why not feeding up with all the pictorial?(right after the cover pictures)

Signed by Mario Testino, the photoshoot has something sterile and forced. The pictures here come from an issue with Laetitia Casta on the cover, supposedly the one with Noémie Lenoir will be with Noémie rather than with Laetitia, after all the racial Vogue controversy wouldn’t have been for nothing. Either way, the LV tights are truly the epitome of unneeded snobbittude. I saved the best for last – this article’s last picture shows one piece of Laetitia holding one piece of a dress… it’s clear enough she’s nude behind the dress, what’s the idea we’re supposed to get from this image? After all, it’s Vogue Paris, we’re supposed to witness unnecessary exposure of flesh…(click the thumbnails to see the larger pictures)

In case you had any doubts that this Vogue Paris cover was an advertorial, here’s the standing ovation for L’ Oréal from the pictorial credits:

“Laetitia Casta, L’Oréal Paris ambassador, is wearing Fond de Teint Accord Parfait Beige, Volume Schocking Brosse Exacte Noir mascara, Le Crayon Khol Noir all around the eye and, on the lips, Color Riche Star Secrets Laetitia Casta. Hair done with le Serum Lumiere Nutri-Gloss Elsève.”

They should’ve wrote V’Oréal on the cover!

Dear Kpriss this is really wonderful, okay I new it already but to use two of the “older” French models is really fantastic. They where both famous in the 90s and beyond. Not by the average public, but they did a lot of good edits and ads. I’m really happy that Carine took these two for they summer edition of Vogue France. I’m proud on you that you put the covers online. Grazie

The ‘average public’ is never interessed in model names. The ones that are well known to the ‘average public’ (whatever that means?) are the ones that caught the attention because of their scandals. I won’t call myself a insider but I do know who these models are. I know their faces. Which I cannot say of the many look-a-likes and ever changing faces whom these days rules on the catwalks.

Back to to cover(s). I think they would have looked great for an Autumn issue. This one(s) doesn’t look summery at all to me. I’ve to check them out at the kiosk.
I’ve add to this that these cover(s) proves women are great to look at instead of too skinny teens which ruled the last decade. I sincerely hope this hype will end soon. After all it are women who have their own career and the money and the older rich women with a husband and a nice bank-account whom are able to afford designer clothes.

They were both fabulous cover. Noemi’s is better in my opinon. I am quite upset that she only got ONE picture in the magazine.
