Vogue Paris April 2006: Noces Blanches

Vogue Paris April 2006: Noces Blanches
By Bernie Rothschild

The highlight of the April 2006 issue of Vogue Paris was the editorial "Noces Blanches" (or in English, "White Wedding"), styled by Emmanuelle Alt featuring her favorite model Daria Werbowy in her bridal best as photographed by her frequent collaborators, Inez and Vinoodh. The theme of that issue is all about the French wedding. Ms. Alt manages to show her sensual side without showing too much and captures the fine line between the virginity and the sexuality of the bride which makes it so interesting. It also showed the trademark très chic of the French women with the mix of bare breasts, cigarettes, and some kinkiness on the side. It also has some hint of her namesake French soft porn movie Emmanuelle that made the editorial oozing and exciting. Though the editorial was erotic, it still showed the powerful sexual femme fatale of the bride.

In the first photo, Daria is wearing a skirt from the first collection by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy for Spring 2006. The religious inspiration of the photo somehow showed the big influence of Riccardo for Givenchy Religion. Daria looks like she's practicing privilège du blanc wherein women are permitted to wear white in the Vatican in the presence of the Pope, a privilege enjoyed only by the Catholic Queen or Queen Consort of Spain and of Belgium and the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg. The green and the white is a great color combination. It simply focuses on the Givenchy gown which makes this photo breathless.

This photo that portrays the ruffled blouse by Moschino is one of my favorite photos of all time. It manages just to focus on the blouse and the femininity despite Ms. Werbowy's alluring presence. Even with the fur shawl, it still seems to be so wearable day or night. Ooo la la...

Bernie, this is wonderful, except that now I want to get married just so you can style me. I want to be sure to capture that fine line...
