The wacky expressions drove us in to LOL-land. Sacre bleu! After the jump, we are in ur magazeen encore, putting werds on your moddles. Merci!
PARIS VOGUE OCT 2007
EDIT #1 daria by inez & vinoodh. its amazing this is a fall edit shot in the desert prob california. the oct bazaar has a daria edit by anthony ward, styled by melanie ward, also shot in the desert. daria is great in both edits but the ward's pics & editing are so mediocre in bazaar that only daria is good. but here in paris vogue, Inez & Vinoodh are so great that the same idea is light years better than in HB. 7.9 of 10 for daria & I&V.
edit #2 sasha by sims. cool studio shoot very high contrast b&ws. the styling is excellent. gawker tried to make fun of this by putting MAD magazine like captions on sasha, but shes russian not french & there are many more silly sims edits lately with the girls leaping & bounding. sasha has lots of presence & a fun insoucience, maybe thats why gawker thought shes french. love sasha 7.5 of 10
EDIT #3 lily d shot by terry richardson. very glastonbury hippie moon child thing going on here. when terry shoots straight hes been doing good stuff lately. lily d helps a lot shes an exceptional model & despiote her stardom doesnt get the accolades she deserves. excelent edit, colours 8 of 10
EDIT #4 lara stone by mark segal. cool airline interior theme. nice subtle earthy fall tones. lara is rocking hard here, looks like anne v at her younger peak best. this is a strong fall edit & cool mood. 8 of 10
EDIT #5 raquel in paris by richardson. another great terry edit, very straight, very trad paris boulevard & bridges. blazer story, the best fashion in the mag. this edit is so so great. raquel , the clothes, paris, the pics, all superlative. 9+ of 10
VERDICT: paris vogue is the best magazine in the world in 2007 & its amazing how they put together a package of 5 or more brill edits in each ish. fabulous model casting, styling, all interestring photos, amazing, just the Top THREE THUMBS UP !!!!!!
