The 3 French Vogue covers for the September 2012 issue are all drop dead gorgeous. Hardly any distractions, just black on grey and 3 super models, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone. The last cover (with blonde Lara) is my favorite. I cannot wait to read it.
September's Vanity Fair has a fascinating interview with John Fairchild, the founder of W Magazine, but now long retired from the company. The article describes his fondness for pitting editors (and other fashion players) against each other to start feuds and finagle juicy headlines. I have no such intention but do want to say that this is what Vogue should look like. Models and style. No celebrities or gimmicky headlines like on the less successful cover below. And the world could really do without fish tail mermaid ball gowns.
