Review: Vogue Paris February 2013 Issue

Review: Vogue Paris February 2013 Issue
By Heather Dunhill

Mon dieu ! It’s the merging of my two favorite cities, New York and Paris, for the Vogue Paris numéro de février. This issue is clearly a nod to Americans that our stilettos are in step with Parisian style. But, could we possibly be so hot on their heels that the French want to know where we are going in terms of fashion and beauty? Now that would be a true French Revolution…

Nice to see that Emmanuelle Alt validated the talent within the trend-forward boroughs of NYC like Dior’s makeup designer Yadim, makeup artist Janeen Witherspoon, and hair stylist Mark Hampton. Even street-style maven Garance Doré penned a love note to the Big Apple in her Humeur column.

So many fabulous layouts this month, it made this magazine really worth poring over. Difficult to choose a favorite but from the sense of attainable glamour for every girl, I crown Capucine Safyurtlu for her styling of "Upper Chic," pages 150–157. The photographs by Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer are fresh and modern — a primer, if you will, on how to wear one of the season’s hottest colors, optic white. Speaking of styling — perhaps you’d like to read my thoughts on Alt’s twelve pages titled "Rendez-vous à Manhattan."

It is clear the New World has earned a hard-fought place in fashion’s hierarchy if Vogue Paris has turned its eyes to us. Overall, I give the issue a 9 out 10. Yes, people. A NINE. See, I can come up with a positive review, when deserved.

Great review, Heather. I've often been critical of EA but I have to admit Emmanuelle hit the ball out of the park with this issue.
