Editorial Inspiration: Gloria

April 23rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

It is no secret that fashion frequently cribs from cinema for editorial inspiration and in the latest Vogue Paris, Terry Richardson recreates the look and feel of John Cassavetes’ film, Gloria. With Joan Smalls taking on the titular role and Géraldine Saglio styling, the VP version of things is considerably more glamourous, but the story is essentially the same – former mob mistresses becomes accidental guardian of a young boy. On the big screen that means shoot outs and grit and in the pages of Vogue that means playground trips and bright red Valentino gowns.

Both the edit and its inspiration are heavy on early 80s / late 70s chic, but we wouldn’t have minded if Joan went all badass and started taking down mobsters. We know the era of Emmanuelle Alt means that Vogue Paris is kindler and gentler, but with source material this fierce it seems a shame not to take things to the next level.

Four Visions

March 29th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Unless you’ve placed yourself on a magazine ban, or been living beneath the safety of a rock, you’ve heard the murmurs about Vogue Paris losing its edge. Whether it is blog posts about lackluster covers, or tFS rumblings, it feels like everyone has an opinion on the excitement level (or lack there of) in the post Carine Roitfeld era.

While we admit to missing the sexed up, controversy courting, boundary pushing days of Mme. Roitfeld, the Emmanuelle Alt helmed VP has its high points - Wham lipsync moment non-withstanding. April’s issue features a striking beauty story by Karim Sadli, featuring Malgosia Bela reinvented by four of the top young talents in hair & makeup. Anthony Turner, Lucia Pica, Yadim & James Pecis create a series of strong, attention grabbing looks for Malgosia that showcase their creativity and modern views of what a striking editorial look can be — how’s that for excitement.

Put On A Happy Face!

August 22nd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Kristina Salinovic brings her dimples to the pages of Vogue Paris in an unusually upbeat story by David Sims. Cheerful girls smiling and jumping seems worlds away from what we expect to see in VP, but we can’t help but be won over by Kristina’s enthusiasm. Emmanuelle Alt‘s precision styling hones in on a series of coveted pieces, from Dolce & Gabbana omnipresent star prints to a chic Balmain jumpsuit.

The Lara Factor

Vogue Paris.

Dare we say it, the best VP cover to come out since Emmanuelle Alt took the helm. Summer glamour with a touch of kitsch and a bit of Haider Ackermann (selected by none other than Melanie Ward) for good measure.

Alt. Viewpoints

March 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

After months of waiting Emmanuelle Alt‘s first issue as editor in chief of Vogue Paris is finally on newsstands. With a focus on simple fashion and showcasing the beauty of the clothes, the content seems destined to be a far cry from the audacious stories pioneered by Carine Roitfeld. Take a glimpse at this preview of editorials from the new edition and tell us what you think about Alt’s new vision for Vogue.

One Look

March 16th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

One killer Dolce & Gabbana dress, two issues of Vogue; which do you prefer? Gisele Bundchen looks stunning on the cover of Emmanuelle Alt‘s first Vogue Paris in a relaxed photo by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and on Vogue Germany‘s cover Britt Maren takes a beach stroll in a summery shot by Knoepfel & Indlekofer. Naturally, both girls look incredible and seeing the same piece on two very different girls leaves us wondering how quickly this little number will sell out in stores.
