February Inspiration

Some things I’m hoping will keep me going through (hopefully) the last of the Winter months.

What’s Your Sign?

This spread in the December 2010 issue of French Vogue staring Siri Tollerod has just catapulted itself into my Top 5 list of favorite  editorials.  The styling and art direction is so cozy and whimsical, I just want to live in the world they created, completely decked out in the clothes of course.  The whole issue was actually really amazing, all about “stars” whether it be models, actresses, or signs.  And the color gold popped up a lot, which brightened my early December quite a bit (completely needed).

Ford Takes Paris

We all know that Tom Ford was the guest editor for the December issue of French Vogue, and now, finally, the pictures are out.  They are all very crisp and sexual, not a lot of romance or blurry, whimsical images for the legendary designer.  For the cover, he chose 15 year old, Daphne Groenveld, pillow lips and all, and you can see Ford lurking in the background.  I actually think the art direction and make up is beautiful, if not slightly creepy.

Of what I have seen of the other editorials, the picture with the children in the make up is my favorite so far.  Crystal Renn makes an appearance as well, though she is hardly recognizable under the bandages and fake plastic surgery.

I’m eager to see the rest of the magazine, once it comes to America I will have to scoop it up!

Poly Pockets

As November comes to an end, I realized that I didn’t post the French Vogue cover for the month!

Natasha Poly landed the cover with amazing hair and make up, very nomad chic.  Models on covers are simply the best, and this is proof of it.

Bon Anniversaire French Vogue!

Happy 90th birthday to French Vogue!  Though they are younger than American Vogue, the French version is by no means the little sister.  With its lack of inhibition and wild editorials, French Vogue is more like the rebellious younger sister interested in sex (drugs) and rock and roll.  Here are some of my favorite images of the legendary magazine over the years.

The Many Faces of Vogue

Since we are nearing the end of September, I have decided that a recap of the Vogue covers from both the American version and the international versions was in order and completely necessary.  The faces gracing these magazines are picked because they will both set the tone for the Fall season and because they will entice people to want to buy the magazine.  Remember, it is the face on the cover that usually sells the magazine.

America

Australia

Germany

Italy

Korea

Mexico

Paris

Portugal

Russia

Spain

Turkey

United Kingdom

Personally, I am loving all of the models on the covers.  Only two of them featured actresses, Halle Berry on American Vogue and Marion Cotillard on French Vogue.  All of the other international covers had models front and center, from Karlie Kloss to Coco Rocha, Freja Beha Erichsen, Kate Moss, and Miranda Kerr (twice!).

A Day at the Beach

Today I am off to the beach for the first time this summer.  Yes, I do realize I am a bit behind, but I’ve been busy!  Try not to think too poorly of me.

Watch Hill, RI

But back to the beach.  I have decided upon Watch Hill, RI, a super WASP-y wealthy little town with great beaches and shopping.

The beach also happens to be an excellent location for photo shoots.  Many amazing photographs and clothes have graced the gorgeous beaches of the world, and below are some of my favorites.  If they don’t inspire you to don your newest bathing suit and 30 spf then I don’t know what will.
