Raising to be a true star, Franca Sozzani has the attention of the fashion world all to herself. Lacking a true editor star and fighting the one and only Anna Wintour whose Vogue US, although entirely professional and respectable, is more on the celeb side than on the model side, the fashion people turn to Franca’s Vogue Italy for fashion hope.
And she delivers! She so delivers! Here’s Vogue Italia’s October 2011 cover with Karen Elson, photographed by Steven Meisel. It’s a perfectly austere, autumnal cover with the flawless Karen (who looks so beautiful, I can’t take my eyes off of her! Can you?). As for the content, there’s not much out yet. However, it would appear (check out the scan after the jump) that the issue revolves around age and beauty. In a new, unexpected perspective! Can’t wait for more goodies!
