Vogue Paris: Blonde

Vogue Paris: Blonde
By Kamila Brudzynska

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental on your humble flat
Or help you at the automat

In the short text next to the photos we can read the Marilyn Monroe quote: "I'm not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful." So, yes, the photo shoot "Blonde" will be inspired by her. I was afraid because I hate when celebrities or even huge stars are dressed up like Marilyn in shoots. She was the only one and she died in 1962. And it should be the end of the topic. BUT I have to admit that Magdalena Frackowiak, Giampaolo Sgura, Géraldine Saglio and the Vogue Paris team did a great job with the editorial "Blonde" for the May issue.

Tiffany's...
Cartier...
Black Star
Frost Gorham
Talk to me Harry Winston, tell me all about it!

These pictures are not obvious and boring. It's only the inspiration, not the copy. Finally! Magda doesn't have the mole but we all know who she is playing. The hair is not the same, only similar. And I think Magda's poses are awesome because they don't look so fake as usual. She played this character better than many actresses that have tried, chapeau bas!

Time rolls on and youth is gone
And you can't straighten up when you bend
But stiff back or stiff knees
You stand straight at Tiffany's

The idea of the photo shoot also is not the empty, sad copy of Marilyn's one. In Vogue Paris we have more poses, we can see a new interpretation of MM original photos. Beautiful, classy jewelry is the first association to the song from the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. This mix of connecting old and new ideas was amazing for me!

Diamonds... Diamonds...
I don't mean rhinestones
But diamonds are a girl's best...
Best friend!

Review: Vogue Paris May 2013 Issue

Review: Vogue Paris May 2013 Issue
By Heather Dunhill

I love that the team at Vogue Paris signaled the start of summer in the May issue with a cruise up the French waterways showing a modern take on favorites like the Breton stripe, the white pant, and the rolled jean. Be sure to get your proper dose of what’s next for sunnies in "C’est Vogue" beginning on page 68, any of which will render you instantly summer chic. And, all the trompe-l'oeil products can be found in "Beauté," pages 101–102, to make us look as if we’ve conquered the seasonal sun without the damage. But, that’s as far as summertime went…

Then it gets a bit dysfunctional for me as far as editorials go. We hop out to the desert dunes, which I really dig — great styling by Emmanuelle Alt. From there, a quick change to downtown couture, another chic layout by Alt. After which, we take a sharp left turn and hit "Esprit Tribal"… not so fab. Our final destination is somewhere dry, the UAE perhaps, with "Sultane" then a red-eye to Cannes where the issue definitely finishes strong in style and styling. An entirely chic tome in style, no doubt. Just a head scratcher as far as leitmotif, a far cry from the strongly themed Peru issue just a month ago.

The not-to-be-missed gems, and right on time, are the dark glamour features: "Punk Atomique" and "Dieu Underground," which are certain to serve as a primer for the debut of "Punk: Chaos to Couture" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC this month. And, be sure to catch my review of Alt’s editorial "Couture," which features the punk girl, all grown up and modern.

On the cover for this special summer, Andreea Diaconu reveals her gorgeous body on the beaches of St. Barths, photographed by Mario Sorrenti. After a first series noticed last February, the top Romanian marks here her very first cover of Vogue Paris and distills her good advice to sculpt a body and a mind of steel. Beside the passion for karate, Anja Rubik reveals a different program based on her yoga and meditation. Among the tips from girls in vogue and new trends coming straight from the United States, it remains only to choose from the bathing suit supplement of Vogue Paris, deciphering this essential ally from every angle.

Vogue Paris: Couture

Vogue Paris: Couture
By Heather Dunhill

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed an editorial styled by Emmanuelle Alt. As a refresher, they haven’t always garnered my highest praise. But, here in the May issue of Vogue Paris she rocks a new Alt, releasing her hold on the 80s with the editorial titled "Couture."

Alt styles haute couture with the dynamic photographic talent of Inez and Vinoodh with model Freja Beha Erichsen. The clean shots pop with punk subculture, a nod to the opening of Punk: Chaos to Couture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this month. Alt proves to us that to be stylish you have to know fashion’s past because history repeats itself — punk is fresh again.

She hits all the hardcore notes for the modern punk poster girl who has taken a maroon, four-door sedan to the borough of Brooklyn where she’ll duck into the underground clubs, eschewing the mainstream and embracing the new noir. It was a sight from the opening image with the studded toque designed by Philip Treacy atop the hot white, cropped Armani Privé jacket to the divine Zuhair Murad gold and alabaster feather cape that shrouded a sequined pantsuit, hit with color at her tomato red pumps.

The strong-shouldered metallic foil frock by Iris Van Herpen emphasizes the rarefied bird on the streets of Willamsburg that can make her way onto any scene there is to be seen. Freja Beha Erichsen in the gilt mini dress by Atelier Versace can open all doors herself, no doubt. But, take a tip from Alt when you get to the Maison Martin Margiela ligne Artisanal shot — pairing silver with a slick scarlet — without question, it will be found on the trend-current street stylers, so get to it before they do...
