Vogue Paris: Miss Vogue: Aux Portes De Cuzco

Vogue Paris: Miss Vogue: Aux Portes de Cuzco
By Richard James

As Kasia Struss has for a long time been one of my favorite models, I was thrilled to see her gracing the pages of the latest issue of Vogue Paris; her attitude, her sense of style, and her grace and beauty all fit the aesthetics of their reader.

In "Miss Vogue: Aux Portes de Cuzco," I felt Kasia symbolized a somewhat modern day Peruvian living in a big city, her closet full of unique finds from her country that she is ever so proud to strut around in as a reminder of where she comes from, the heritage that helps define who and what she is, but this girl isn't homesick from the way she's proudly showing her country's culture with her urban twist on her native dress.

I found that although the editorial contains a lot of basic items such as jeans and sweaters it is so creatively and uniquely done, you don't necessarily need a couture gown to be considered imaginative.

Now I'm not going to pretend I know much about Peru and this is what I loved about the issue: it not only shows you the tranquil scenery, it also sheds light on the culture and its people such as the positively handsome Alvaro Malpartida who made a welcomed addition to Vogue Paris.

Vogue Paris: Inca

Vogue Paris: Inca
By Yuka Ryou

For the April 2013 issue of Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt styled an editorial titled "Inca" starring Isabeli Fontana and Aymeline Valade as photographed by Mario Testino. From these pictures, it is clear that ethnic costumes and fashion can co-exist.

Isabeli Fontana isn't wearing real ethnic costumes. These are the collection pieces from each brand. Vogue Paris shows us the dream and the mysterious beauty of the Inca sublimated to the mode. Even those who like black chic style will be impressed by these primary color palettes.

How could this be incorporated into our style? Spring has come, women take off their heavy coats and they start to enjoy colors. In Tokyo, smoky pastel colors are mainstream. Maybe it’s from Louis Vuitton's carousel collection that showed us a romantic dream and that Kate Moss can wear any dress with style. In this way, girls in the town are enjoying pastel colors.

But can Emmanuelle fans also do that? Sadly, my answer is NO. I can’t wear pastel color chicly. I'm attracted by vivid and strong colors like these photos. How about you?

I think that in some cases these primary colors are stronger than black. Even if we don’t live in Peru, even if we don’t have the SLP tassel necklace, it may be possible to take in the mysterious charm of the Inca according to creativity.

For example, when you're wearing a classic black v-neck cashmere knit, you probably add a chignon to show your beautiful neckline. And usually, you would choose shining diamond earrings. It's exactly Parisian chic. But now, let’s take a cheap vintage scarf (if you have an Hermès scarf, it's perfect.) and try braiding your hair with it. If you have short hair, let's get small colorful tassels at the craft shop and attach them to your gold hoop earrings. At that moment, we will get the essence of the Inca. To combine strong colors like hot pink and turquoise with black, it would be perfect to wear in town. We can try very easily. Let’s get new boho chic style.

Vogue Paris: L'Etoile De Lima

Vogue Paris: L'Etoile de Lima
By Heather Dunhill

"L'Etoile de Lima" was enveloped with the power of Peru-suasion for the April issue of Vogue Paris. Stylist Sarajane Hoare and master photographer Mario Testino captured every note that represented a country rich in culture and history with its eye on a modern future. And, no one commands attention like the iconic Kate Moss. It was an indomitable trifecta of talent; an editorial destined for greatness.

For me, it launched with the most dominating image of the set. But, don’t get me wrong here — every page in between telegraphed with intense purpose that the Peruvian woman is one of prominence and style and she’s not afraid of her sexuality. In fact, she’s in control.

The opening image of Kate perched in a power seat set the tone. That covetable Saint Laurent chapeau, intimidating Estée Lauder crimson lip, and fitted gabardine jacket, artistically accentuated with her bare torso, was perfectly matched with a chic take on gaucho boots and the divine maxi leather skirting.

Every shot was expertly styled by Hoare, I mean really. It was the epitome of the proverbial Parisian woman on holiday in Peru — making the colors and cultural inspirations her own, weaving them into her style. A fashionable ability we’ve envied for generations…

Vogue Paris May 2013: Freja Beha Erichsen

Électrique, rebelle, contrasté... ce numéro de mai se laisse enivrer par la fièvre punk et l'excitation couture du Festival de Cannes pour s'adonner aux deux extrêmes en toute liberté. En kiosque le 25 avril prochain.

"Le punk est dans l'air. Une attitude, des looks, un courant de fond auxquels fait écho une formidable exposition au MET de New York ("Punk: Chaos to Couture)", écrit Emmanuelle Alt, rédactrice en chef de Vogue Paris, dans l'édito du numéro de mai 2013. Une édition ancrée dans l'air du temps, faisant le grand écart entre ce souffle révolutionnaire, mis à l'honneur par le Costume Institute dès le 9 mai prochain, et le glamour clinquant du Festival de Cannes. Deux styles qui se rejoignent en couverture de Vogue sous les traits de Freja Beha Erichsen, photographiée par Inez & Vinoodh. Absente du magazine depuis le numéro d'août 2011 et des podiums depuis le printemps-été 2012, cette brune sulfureuse au corps tatoué conjugue les robes haute couture du printemps-été 2013 avec son allure sauvage. Le voyage aux origines du mot punk continue avec l'interview d'un de ses membres fondateurs, le musicien Richard Hell, avant de voguer en mer Méditerranée à bord d'un superbe voilier pour la série Miss Vogue. On frôle les côtes marocaines s'enivrer des parfums d'Orient avant d'atteindre les côtes cannoises. Au programme: une rencontre privée avec Julianne Moore, les confidences de Karim Rahman, le maquilleur expert de l'Oréal Paris, et une plongée dans les coulisses du Festival de Cannes par Garance Doré. Suivez le guide!

Electric, rebellious, mixed... this issue may leave you intoxicated by the punk fever and the fashion excitement of the Cannes Film Festival to indulge in extremes freely. On newsstands April 25.

"Punk is in the air. An attitude, the looks, an undercurrent that echoes a wonderful exhibition at the MET in New York ("Punk: Chaos to Couture")," writes Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris in the editorial of the May 2013 issue. An issue anchored in the zeitgeist bridging the gap between the revolutionary spirit, honored by the Costume Institute on May 9, and the glitz and glamour of the Cannes Film Festival. The two styles converge on the cover of Vogue in the guise of Freja Beha Erichsen, photographed by Inez & Vinoodh. Absent from the magazine since August 2011 and from the runways since Spring/Summer 2012, this sultry brunette with the tattooed body combines the couture dresses of Spring/Summer 2013 with her own wild allure. The journey to the origins of the word punk continues with an interview with one of its founding members, the musician Richard Hell, before sailing the Mediterranean Sea aboard a beautiful yacht for the series "Miss Vogue." It borders the Moroccan coast drunk on the perfumes of the Orient before reaching the coast of Cannes. The programme: a private meeting with Julianne Moore, the confidences of Karim Rahman, the makeup expert of L'Oréal Paris, and diving behind the scenes at Cannes with Garance Doré. Follow the guide!

Vogue Paris Translation: Le Point De Vue De Vogue April 2013

Le Pérou donne le vertige. Des cimes du mont Huascarán aux plages de Lima, le décalage est de 7000 mètres. Pour ce numéro, c'est en compagnie de Mario Testino que nous avons fait le grand saut. Une plongée éblouissante, où les surprises sont à chaque coin de rue, les découvertes au bout d'un chemin qui s'enfonce dans la jungle ou au détour d'une piste qui danse sur la crête des Andes.

Le Pérou, c'est une variété inouïe de paysages, de lumières et de parfums, un pays-fusion devenu une source permanente d'inspiration. Des beaux quartiers de Lima aux vieilles rues de Cuzco, l'ancienne capitale inca, en passant par les légendaires lignes de Nazca, la mode selon Vogue s'est mise au tempo péruvien : généreux, contrasté, dans tous les cas coloré. Un esprit unique, qu'un trio de chefs surdoués est en train de faire découvrir au monde entier : nous les avons rencontrés. Exceptionnellement, le prix Nobel de littérature Mario Vargas Llosa a accepté de se livrer : écrivain passionnel, il souligne — entre autres confidences — le climat d'euphorie que traverse son pays. Un optimisme dont la jeune génération de sportifs, de mannequins et comédiens s'est faite le porte-drapeau. Plus qu'une simple échappée, ce numéro salue aussi cette confiance solaire, fondée sur ce qui anime les meilleurs créateurs : le goût infini de la diversité.

Peru gives one vertigo. From the peaks of Mount Huascaran to the beaches of Lima, the difference is 7,000 meters. For this issue, it is in the company of Mario Testino that we made the leap. A dazzling plunge, where surprises are around every corner, with discoveries at the end of a path that leads into the jungle or a detour for a track dancing on the crest of the Andes.

Peru, it is an incredible variety of landscapes, of lights and of fragrances, a country-fusion that has become a constant source of inspiration. From the beautiful neighborhoods of Lima to the old streets of Cuzco, the ancient Inca capital, through the legendary Nazca lines, the fashion of Vogue has begun to follow a Peruvian beat: generous, mixed, in all cases colorful. A unique spirit, a trio of gifted chefs is in the process of discovering the world: we met with them. Exceptionally, the Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa has agreed to deliver: a passionate writer, he emphasizes — among other secrets — the climate of euphoria that traverses his country. An optimism that the younger generation of athletes, models, and actors has been made the flag bearer. More than just escape, this issue also salutes that sunny confidence, based on that which motivates the finest creators: the endless taste for diversity.
