Review: Vogue Paris February 2014 Issue

Review: Vogue Paris February 2014 Issue
By Heather Dunhill

If you live and die by the beauty trends off the pages of Vogue Paris, then the fresh-faced Emily DiDonato, who graces the February cover, lets you know that you are in for a downsizing from the heavy-handedness of the smokey eye to glowing spring makeup.

All you have to do is turn the pages to spot the continental fashion shift to a soft wash of lighter, clean eye hues like ethereal white eye makeup powered by statement lashes for a pop. And the lip colors range from au naturel to bright berry tones that perk up an otherwise neutral face.

It’s not just a blinking caution light to signal the change — the alarm has sounded; the doors have closed on deep warm shading. Take, for instance, the simple beauty shades that Prada pairs with their primary colors for their spring campaign. Or, the petal pinks on the lovely femme in the "C’est Vogue" editorial paired with the chic metallic look, even black, so your nighttime look should also go on notice.

If you still need convincing, check out the stunning Edita Vilkeviciute in the layout for the Bijoux section, "Rose d’hiver" which translates to “Winter Rose.”  Soft, feminine, and delicate yet modern faces are the trend throughout.

It’s a sporty, smart, and sassy look for spring that was also seen on the Spring/Summer 2014 runways from Prabal Gurung to Donna Karan. And, I’m sure we can all agree that there’s no better time to embrace la vie en rose than now. It may even help to melt the nagging chill of winter….

Vogue Paris Translation: Le Point De Vue De Vogue February 2014

Pour la première fois, une femme va piloter Paris, l'Hôtel de Ville aura sa reine. Laquelle de Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet ou Anne Hidalgo l'emportera ? Encore un mois et demi de campagne à l'heure où nous bouclons… C'était le moment idéal. Les candidates à l'écharpe municipale se sont confiées à nous sans filtre. Surprenantes. Passionnées, et passionnantes. Toutes les femmes qui figurent dans ce numéro ont une vision. À New York, la galeriste et marchande d'art Dominique Lévy nous a ouvert sa porte. Ses choix aventureux ont fait d'elle une experte hors pair, capable de jongler avec les prix exorbitants du marché, tout comme de mettre sur pied des expositions de niveau muséal. C'est à Londres que nous avons rencontré Fatima Bhutto, héritière d'une dynastie marquée du sceau du glamour et de la tragédie. La jeune femme, 31 ans, ne fait pas de politique. Elle est écrivain. Une voix nouvelle, de portée internationale, pour dire les turbulences du Pakistan.

Fraîches comme si elles sortaient du collège, ou hypersophistiquées, beautés classiques ou singulières, 22 tops prennent la pose dans ce numéro. On reconnaît certaines dans la rue : Emily DiDonato, Edita Vilkeviciute, Amanda Murphy, Andreea Diaconu. D'autres font une carrière de star : Freja Beha, Saskia de Brauw, Edie Campbell, Georgia May Jagger. Dans leur sillage, un florilège de nouveaux visages. Sur lesquels nous misons. David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, Inez & Vinoodh, Mikael Jansson ont répondu présents pour les mettre en valeur. Et la mode, librement, célèbre le noir, la lumière, la sensualité, le blanc virginal… qui vont si bien aux femmes.

For the first time, a woman will drive Paris, City Hall will have its queen. Will Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet or Anne Hidalgo prevail? Another month and a half in the campaign until the time when we close... It was a perfect time. The candidates for the municipal sash entrusted us with no filter. Amazing. Passionate and exciting. All of the women presented in this issue have a vision. In New York, the gallery owner and art dealer Dominique Lévy has opened the door. Her adventurous choices have made ​​her an unparalleled expert, able to juggle the exorbitant market prices, as well as develop exhibitions to the museum standards. It was in London that we met Fatima Bhutto, heir to a dynasty marked with the seal of glamour and tragedy. The young woman, 31 years old, does not make policy. She is a writer. A new voice, international in scope, to tell of the turmoil in Pakistan.

Fresh as if they came out of college, or hypersophisticated, classic or singular beauties, 22 tops strike a pose in this issue. We recognize some street: Emily DiDonato, Edita Vilkeviciute, Amanda Murphy, Andreea Diaconu. Others make a career as a star: Freja Beha, Saskia de Brauw, Edie Campbell, Georgia May Jagger. In their wake, a selection of new faces. On which we focus. David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, Inez & Vinoodh, Mikael Jansson were present for the showcase. And the fashion, clearly, celebrates black, light, sensuality, virginal white... which go so well with women.

IWTBAA Love Note: Lou Doillon

IWTBAA Love Note: Lou Doillon
By Heather Dunhill

Lou Doillon instantly came to mind when Paul Kolyer, IWTBAA managing editor, asked the team to choose a Paris Voguette for a Valentine. To me, Lou is the epitome of the modern day independent French femme. She’s the girl we look to when we want to know how to do that perfectly undone chic vibe, surprisingly with just a few pieces at hand. Her simplistic gamine gorgeousness is incredibly refreshing.

What’s more, she’s making her own way as model, actress, and singer despite her pedigree. Just FYI: Lou’s the daughter of French film director Jacques Doillon and British chanteuse Jane Birkin. Of course you know the iconic, lust-worthy Hermès Birkin bag — yep, named for her mère. But to her credit, Lou doesn’t trade on the family tree.

Lou quietly, possibly reluctantly as a wild child, moved onto the style scene but then exploded onto the radar screen when her debut album Places was released. It’s moody poetry for the cool girl. Completes my perception of her in the perfect tense. Since the album’s launch we’ve seen this It-girl in campaigns from Barneys New York to Saint Laurent Paris to Chloé The girl seems to have it all and to be making all the right choices… Très chic, non?
