Vogue Paris April 2013: Isabeli Fontana

For the April issue of Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt posed Isabeli Fontana atop a Peruvian mountain wearing Dolce & Gabbana as photographed by Mario Testino. What are Emmanuelle's thoughts on the issue? From the Vogue Paris site... "'Peru gives you vertigo. Between the heights of Huascarán and the beaches of Lima, there is a difference of 7000m. For this issue, we made the jump with Mario Testino,' wrote Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris in her editorial for the April 2013 issue. The photographer introduced us to the enchanting contrasts of his homeland through a high-color fashion triptyque, featuring three stories and three magnificent panoramas, with three fabulous girls: the mountains of Cuzco with Isabeli Fontana — our April cover girl — and Aymeline Valade, the Peruvian coast with Kate Moss and the Nazca desert with Erin Wasson. It was a chance for Mario Testino to share his memories and show off the contemporary Peru for which he works tirelessly through his MATE organization. From top tables to the shops, bars and cafés you need to know about, the photographer shares his personal favorites as we meet artists like Nobel Prize for literature winner Mario Vargas Llosa and learn about the artisan expertise that goes into locally woven embellished fabrics, beribboned hats and fine embroidery. As the country looks set to become the new Eldorado of South America, its greatest ambassador shows us Peru, in all its blazing glory." And what was Emmanuelle's inspiration for the editorial? One can only guess...

Review: Vogue Paris March 2013 Issue

Review: Vogue Paris March 2013 Issue
By Heather Dunhill

The March issue of Vogue Paris reminds me of the days of old when the economy was thriving and this fashion tome weighed a solid seven pounds. It’s a virtual eye candy of ads all the way through to page 102, sans Table of Contents, a stream of delectably dreamy campaigns. From the decadent Italian seaside goddesses of Dolce & Gabbana to the divine siren encrusted with diamonds in Céline’s pink-footed tub to Versace’s opulently metallic-hued Greek gods. Personally, I’m so happy that fashion is over the period of austerity and is forging ahead, with or without us or our American Express cards.

If you happen to bypass Calvin Klein’s #provocations short, I encourage you to have a peek. Modern media at its best; they pique our interest with the sexy pairing of actor Alexander Skarsgård and model Suvi Koponen. It just has to be said: it’s 9:56 of smokin’ hot. This may possibly be today’s equivalent of Kate Moss in the 1985 Obsession campaign by Mario Sorrenti.

But we know I’m not here to review the ads. Some of you may think I’m stalling on the overall review, but really, I’m not. I find myself looking forward to Vogue Paris more and more these days, like News Mode and News Beauté for the must-know style news and must-haves in beauty. One for your shopping list is Dior Addict Gloss on page 144, I ran right over to Saks Fifth Avenue and picked one up just as the counter reps were unpacking the boxes of the new line — love it. But, I’ve been sold on the Addict line for a while now. I actually carry Dior’s Lip Glow with me wherever I go. It’s the perfect way to add a little natural color after yoga or on the go. But I digress…

I could go on in much the same way for the rest of the issue but you get the point. A multitude of what’s new and cool to put on your radar, the way it should be, right?! With that, one more for your spring playlist: Push the Sky Away by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, page 168. So, il est bien fait Emmanuelle and company — you’ve certainly got my attention! For more about the editorial content of the issue, read my review of "Full Contrast" as styled by Emmanuelle Alt.

Vogue Paris: Utopies

Vogue Paris: Utopies
By Richard James

Surrealism felt like the central focus of a somewhat toned down main editorial titled "Utopies" for the March issue of Vogue Paris, featuring Suvi Koponen as photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Although not tiresomely try hard and incredibly accessible, I still find it awfully bland but its accessibility factor makes it an easy task for the reader (and customer) to imagine the pieces on the street and, more importantly, in their lives.

I felt the Surrealism was echoed in the sharp cut of the model's hair and the styling of several pieces such as those by Hermès but also the slight adjustments during the editing process. The variety in the styling from Boy London, Diesel, Giorgio Armani, and Comme des Garçons felt the most approachable aspect in the editorial.

I do, however, feel there is a lack of range in the editorial and it feels that each page stands alone and on the whole it is missing the cohesion of an editorial. As I previously mentioned there are some surreal elements but in other pages it feels somewhat grunge and others just very random — I felt there was very little obvious imagination but if you take that away it is a "nice" story.

I received my issue today and I did thoroughly enjoy dissecting it but I just felt the blandness was a crippling factor for me. If I were to sum it up in two words it would be "easy" and "accessible." The issue was, however, strong in many aspects and I find Emmanuelle Alt as an editor has a strong eye but I think there needs to be a more diverse attitude in her styling work.

Vogue Paris: Full Contrast

Vogue Paris: Full Contrast
By Heather Dunhill

What’s stark black and bright white all over? Well, the 2013 spring, summer, fall, and winter runways, for certain. As was "Full Contrast," starring Isabeli Fontana in the March issue of Vogue Paris, photographe David Sims and réalisation Emmanuelle Alt.

The intense juxtaposition and absence of color makes for an in-your-face-jump-off-the-page styling by Alt, sharply opposed to anything we’ve seen from her in a very long time. She hit all the right notes with the mod pieces by Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent, and Chanel by giving them a modern edge with those molten lava vinyl pants. Very hot.

The styling was hip, chic, and totally fresh from the could-care hair to the single accessory constant — the metal Balmain belt. Entirely cool, Emmanuelle, entirely cool.
