Vogue Paris: Helena

Vogue Paris: Helena
By Bernie Rothschild

The December/January issue of Vogue Paris showed the supers of the modeling world and the cover itself featured one of the most powerful women in the worlds of show business and politics — Carla Bruni. The spread "Helena" was photographed by Glen Luchford and styled by Marie Chaix. The shoot, though very bland and flat, doesn't fail to catch my attention. The photos were somehow inspired by the music video "Wicked Game" which features the sensuality of the wet look beauty of Helena Christensen and happens to be one of the sexiest videos of all time. The photos show the process of lovemaking from beginning to end.

The Dolce & Gabbana lace dress screams eroticism. It kind of reminds me of the Prada Fall 2008 collection that was all about lace. It manages to capture the sexuality of Ms. Christensen without showing too much skin. The messy hair makes her look like she just had sex and then put on some clothes to chat with her lover.

I love the black dress that she's wearing in this photo. It looks like she and her lover have just gone to the party and he is seducing her while he's watching her taking off his clothes one by one. I especially love the look of this Sonia Rykiel black dress and it is somehow inspired by Madame Grès. Madame Grès was originally the one who put sex in her clothes because of her sensual drape which was considered erotic at that time.

The white Burberry jacket makes Helena looks like she belongs to the swinging London scene with her makeup and she looks like one of those groupies that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards would fuck all night long. This made her look a cross between Anita Pallenberg and Jean Shrimpton.

The last photo was somehow confusing and I wonder why did they dress her like that? It's like, what's the point? It shows Helena's feminine-masculine side and she manages to look seductive. This photo has the message that women can still look sexy even though they are wearing their boyfriend's clothes.

Vogue Paris: Do Not Disturb

Emmanuelle Alt describes her March Vogue Paris as the "avant-garde issue," promising that it will flirt outrageously and deliberately with the radical. The IWTBAA team will analyze the avant-garde issue in the weeks to come beginning with a fun look at Anja Rubik in "Do Not Disturb" thanks to our lovely contributing editor Kamila Brudzynska

Vogue Paris: Do Not Disturb
By Kamila Brudzynska

Ok, so first you should know that this will not be an objective review. Anja Rubik is my favorite top model, I think she is amazing. Her private style is so stunning and she has attained so much in her career, everything actually. So many campaigns and catwalks for such big names, her name is now big, too. And she’s making her own magazine which is controversial and provocative and so creative. Yes, for me she’s the best.

But ok, back to the photo shoot "Do Not Disturb" in the March issue of Vogue Paris… Brushing her teeth, smoking on the toilet bowl, taking a shower, shaving, sitting in the bath, singing into the showerhead… All in luxurious clothes, full makeup, perfect hair, such things we can see only in Vogue Paris.

Marie Chaix has done great work with the clothes. I mean, green tiles are not the best background and I think it was quite hard to pick clothes which will not be less attention-grabbing than them. Don’t you think the pink suit is definitely best against the green background? I have to admit that I especially love the photo with the golden dress. I don’t know why but when I look at these photos the first word I think of is “luxury.”

Great move also to use so much jewelry. It’s big, it’s shiny, it’s see-through. It fits the clothes in a good way, the outfits are nicer for the eye. And, yes, Anja is stunning in this photo shoot, her beauty suits the theme perfectly.

Vogue Paris: New York Partie 3

Vogue Paris: New York Partie 3
By Kamila Brudzynska

When I saw the February issue of Vogue Paris for the first time, I had Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" song in my head. My favorite band made a cover of it a few years ago so I know it very well. New York as the theme of the February issue was a wonderful idea. It's probably the strongest issue since Emmanuelle Alt became editor-in-chief of the magazine.

"New York Partie 3" is a beautiful photo shoot, the city in the backgound looks just amazing. I love the idea of using the good old Walkman as one of the accessories! It's so 90s!

It's simple, casual street style mixed with elegant coats and pullovers. The differences between the loud, lively streets and the suburbs near the bridge are really great. Especially the black-and-white photos have some kind of magic.

On the other hand, I don't think there's any breakthrough. There's nothing suprising, no special energy. These are just very beautiful, well done photos but I'm missing something breathtaking, something more there.

In my opinion, in comparision to the photo shoots with Milla Jovovich or Anja Rubik in the issue, this one is not as good. There's nothing exciting here, I don't have this feeling to come back to these photos over and over for new, fresh inspirations.
