Vogue Paris loves attention more than anything. More than fashion. What would Carine do if she was told to manage an un-shocking issue, non-smoking and 100% dressed? Resign?
December-January 2008 2009 Vogue Paris has landed Stéphanie de Monaco for the cover. Not a model. Unless making it into the ranks of the catwalkers by royal pedigree means counts for anything. Not a celebrity, unless the above. Not a notable person or personality unless the above. So what’s this Vogue Paris issue all about? Rich, tattooed, tired looking smokers? Célébrités francophones? (more after the jump!)
Because if the only difference between Vogue US and Vogue Paris are Wintour/Roitfeld and US celebs/French celebs, I’m definitely migrating towards Vogue Russia. I won’t get a thing from the magazine, but at least I’d be delighted by its beauty and the pictures of actual models/fashion.
Or maybe, just maybe, this cover is supposed to make a world of difference from the legendary Pin-up-ish calendrier accompanying this issue? Boredom vs clichés? (photos via)
