The September Issue Brief: VOGUE

Yup, I made my own cover, and I’m wearing fabulous Haider Ackermann

Hello sweet readers! I won’t blame you if you are somewhat pissed at me for not posting for a while. But I am back with loads of new material to share with you. And since Fashion Week is just around the corner, we are all getting pretty excited here! September is not only about S/S runways, it’s also about those glossy, chunky and monthly fashion bibles, commonly known as magazines. Every September they dedicate countless pages to the biggest trends of the coming season: What to wear, how to wear it, how to pair it, what to buy, and more! Lots and lots of pages, filled with lots and lots of fashion. J’adore! So let’s see what Vogue has in store for us this month!

VOGUE US

Cover girl: Kate Moss

She is wearing: Alexander McQueen A/W 2011 (modified dress)

Photographer: Mario Testino

What we thought: Definitely one of our favorites! Kate Moss was the right person to grace the cover of such an important issue. Not only because of her fabulous wedding and her stunning self, but also because when it comes to fashion, she is the queen of all models. Shot by Mario Testino, the spread is as expected, elegant and romantic but with Kate written all over it.

VOGUE UK

Cover girl: Freja Beha Erichsen

She is wearing: Dolce & Gabbana

Photographer: Mario Testino

What we thought: Everybody loves Freja, and it is more than obvious that everybody loves Mr. Testino. This choice was an unexpected surprise, but a good one. There is something about this girl, she is intoxicating, intriguing. Even for those who don’t now who she is, you can’t help but stare, open the mag, and look for her spread. Add some sequins to the mix, she is a seller! Plus, this girl is already part of Fashion’s history, she will be timeless, just like Kate.

VOGUE FR

Cover girl: Charlotte Casiraghi

She is wearing: Close-up, inside the magazine: Gucci, Balmain…

Photographer: Mario Testino

What we thought: I have to confess something, I am literally drooling over this cover. Some might say Emanuelle Alt’s choice was boring and might not like the close-up. I say it’s mind-blowing. We can forget about the royalty thing, she is just stunning, has an incredible sense of fashion and elegance, runs her own fashion magazine, one of the Kaiser’s favorite girls and Gucci’s pampered one. And she has Grace Kelly’s glamour. Does this girl deserve a Vogue cover? She certainly does. Was it a bold choice? For sure, but also a winner one! And she is close-up material, I bet even her pores are gorgeous.

VOGUE NIPPON

Cover girl: Karolina Kurkova

She is wearing: Giorgio Armani

Photographers: Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin

What we thought: This is fun, and different. So different that Karolina can barely be recognized. You can call it wild, you can call it funky, but the result is divine. She was photographed by a duo that is so happening right now, the talented Inez & Vinoodh. Wearing an A/W 2011 t-shirt with the face of a younger Giorgio Armani, Karolina has got it going on!

VOGUE RUSSIA

Cover girl: Natasha Poly

She is wearing: Inside Prada, Céline, DKNY, D&G, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière, Burberry Prorsum

Photographer: Hedi Slimane

What we think: The cover is very russian, very sexy, and very blonde. Also a bit boring. It’s nothing new, but Natasha’s beauty and sensuality make up for the lack of novelty. Inside we can see Poly channeling a mod chick, and rocking those prada boots like no one else.

VOGUE ESPAÑA

Cover girls: Eva Herzigova, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen

They are wearing: Dolce & Gabbana

Photographer: Tom Munro

What we thought: The styling was great and was done by Domenico and Stefano. I’m kind of growing to love those stars even if at first I didn’t like them that much. But allow me to be blunt, three women like Claudia, Eva and Helena (a personal favorite) should be able to make paper burn just by looking at it. This women do not need stars to sizzle, they already make it happen on their own. This cover does not do any justice to them, Helena doesn’t look as fab as she usually is, Claudia looks mean and Eva, well Eva takes the shot. I was expecting more from it.

VEREDICT: Royalty takes the cake, no cover can measure up to Charlotte’s!

I hope you liked it folks! Be sure to check back for some new posts. My oven is full!

Sweet kisses…
