Putting On The Ritz

Queen Kate returns to her throne at Paris’ eternal hotspot, The Ritz and she brings along a few friends with her. Walker creates a surreal vision of opulence taking full advantage of the hotel’s regal redesign and all the world’s finest couture. Kate looks majestic and her ladies in waiting, Josephine Skriver, Mirte Maas, Patricia van der Vliet, and Sigrid Agren are a dream. We know J.Lo snagged the cover of Vogue’s shape issue but with a story this good inside, we can’t help but wish Kate was on Vogue’s front page this month instead.

  1. People whine a lot about the vogue cover model thing but all things considered i’m backing Anna on her covers. Her cover choices reflect mainstream america which, surprise surprise, is her biggest market. She can’t risk putting a face nobody knows about coz no one save a few fashion fans would buy it. Blame the industry, which can’t manage to make a model a star in the day and age where random people become z-list celebs and bigger than hollywood stars in terms of coverage. I get it, the industry doesn’t want divas but you have to have clout to be on US vogue, you have to have buzz and be newsworthy. Otherwise it’s just a waste of print. JLo has pulled a succesful comeback, one that is especially noteworthy due to several factors. She OWNS that cover, trust. Unless the industry and the media/public embrace making models as stars, you won’t see a random ruski adolescent on the US cover any time soon

  2. Beautiful spread … until the cover pops up.. seriously disturbing. I can not stand that person. I liked her back in 2001 but now? Omg Please Do Over!!

  3. This is no surprise and I don’t understand why people are getting all upset about it. Anna Wintour has to sell magazines at the end of the day and honestly, I guarantee majority of people on the street couldn’t tell you five top models in the industry today.

    But on the other hand. I’ll never get tired of Kate. So lovely!

  4. The biggest supermodel known to men, women, teenage girls and boys is Candice Swanepoel, not Lara Stone or Freja Beha

  5. Kate Moss looks so boring and seems like she is bored aswell. Her facial expression are the same on every sinlge shots but the styling saves the whole photoshoot especially on the third picture. However the other models look great.

  6. Personally, I’m more in love with the rooms of the Ritz then Kate Moss and the other models. Kate Moss just doesn’t do it for me. As for American covers having singers, actresses, etc: I see nothing wrong with it. America has and loves its celebrities, and quite frankly they’re more interesting. Most Americans cannot name what lots of fashion lovers consider the top 5 or 10 models. I really don’t see the big deal because it’s not like models don’t get spreads in the magazine, they’re face is just not on the cover.
