Vogue Paris December 2011/January 2012: Kate Moss

Emmanuelle Alt pays tribute to David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust with Kate Moss as her pick for the December 2011/January 2012 cover of Vogue Paris. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott photographed the image. This is an interesting choice as it marks the second time Moss acts as a guest editor for Vogue Paris, her first appearance was six years ago for the December 2005/January 2006 issue. Unless Emmanuelle has decided to end the guest editor tradition, which would be a travesty. What is it about Kate Moss that gives one the urge to style her like David Bowie? Note the cover of Vogue UK below, shot in May 2003 by Nick Knight. The December 2011/January 2012 issue of Vogue Paris will be available on newsstands beginning 5 December.

Where are the Spiders from Mars?
30 novembre 2011 | Unregistered Commentermike
Michael, your excellent question requires me to post the lyrics in full:

Ohh, yeah
Ziggy played guitar, jammin' good with Weird and Gilly
And the Spiders from Mars, he played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
They came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan

So where were the Spiders?
While the fly tried to break our balls
Just a beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans, and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With God given ass
He took it all too far, but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego
Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper Messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band

Ohh, yeah
Ziggy played guitar

It's so cool & beautiful cover!!!
I can't wait for reading the issue.
The cover of Vogue Paris is more wonderful
than Vogue Japan (>_<)

Kate's tattoo is the same design with one of the
Fred jewelry designed by her!

Yuka, so happy to see your comment, thank you! I am glad you like this cover and I do look forward to seeing what's inside as well. I didn't know that about Kate's tattoo, merci! xx

Ms. Alt really loves David Bowie and she Bowie-nize every photographed that she was taking I bet

Bowie-nize, nice coinage, B! Loves it!

This is one of the greatest Vogue covers in years, far exceeding anything from the Roitfeld era. One would have to go back to the blonde punk cover editor-in-chief Francine Crescent ran in the 1970s to top this Kate-as-Ziggy number.

Gisele, clearly I need to explore the work of Francine Crescent, thank you for bringing this to my attention. It is nice to hear that you approve of Emmanuelle's styling.
