Review: Vogue Paris December 2013 Issue
By Heather Dunhill
Mon dieu! Have you seen the December cover of Vogue Paris? Please tell me you have. It’s a seductively sweet portrait of the Beckhams; Victoria and David, that is, by the dynamic photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. I’m going out on a limb here and declaring it the most remarkable VP cover since Emmanuelle Alt took the reigns.
What’s incredibly cool is that the perpetually impeccable and always in demand Victoria Beckham served as the guest editor of the holiday issue, which includes a peek into her private life before and after David and their flock of four of the most gorgeous children ever. Victoria shares a personal side we rarely see that includes touching family photos and memories as well as some quality time with her friends Valentino Garavani and Marc Jacobs.
And the editorials are the precise blend of soigné and louche luxe from her Brigitte Bardotesque photos in "Beauté" to Violaine Binet’s interview "Queen Victoria" to "Vie privée" (Translation: "A Very Private Affair"). Victoria is proof that, as a woman, you really can have it all.
The entire tome is a lavish feast for the senses — perfect for the month in which we love to imbibe in all things decadent.
