Oozing With Ferociousness

13/04/2011, Fashion and Style, Models, Vogue Paris

I’m probably the last person on earth to have seen this video but hot diggity damn, check out Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik and Isabeli Fontana in this ‘Girls on Film’ video shoot for Vogue Paris.

I wonder what the bystanders and rubberneckers were thinking as they witnessed the ferociousness in front of them. Ha ha!

Reeeeaaaallly now, L'Oreal?

I remember this stunning image of the thinspirational Olga Sherer from the November 2007 (Vogue Montres) issue of Vogue Paris.

Fast forward to the February 2010 issue of Vogue Italia comes an ad from L'Oreal.

Everything's photoshopped these days anyway so the question is, do you think it's Olga Sherer on that image, photoshopped to make her a wee bit plumper or no? What say you?

Just wondering…

Balenciaga Banned Carine Roitfeld, Vogue Paris

Balenciaga Banned Carine Roitfeld, Vogue Paris

This is shocking and super scary. I received this news alert from Women’s Wear Daily  last night during dinner.

In other Balenciaga news, noticeably absent from Thursday’s front row was French Vogue editor in chief Carine Roitfeld and her team. They were barred from the show. “We’re blacklisted,” Roitfeld said with a shrug at Nina Ricci later in the day. “It’s too bad, it’s a beautiful house and it’s French. I hope that it’s not forever.” She noted Balenciaga no longer advertises in the magazine or lends it clothes, but stopped short of giving any reason for the rift. “Ask them,” she offered. A Balenciaga spokesman declined comment.

It’s no secret that the House of Balenciaga, which is owned by Gucci Group/PPR, is super conservative
when it comes to their show but to blacklist Carine Roitfeld (who wore Balenciaga in last year’s CNN feature as above) and her Vogue Paris team means something serious happened behind closed doors.

Thoughts?

Anna Wintour Flexes Her Muscle While Carine Roitfeld Plays Second Fiddle in Her Own Turf

Anna Wintour Flexes Her Muscle While Carine Roitfeld Plays Second Fiddle in Her Own Turf

On January 25, Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld and the French Industry Minister, Christian Estrosi, had a meeting to discuss the future of French fashion and what the French government can do to help the (struggling) fashion industry.

Oh how I laughed when I first saw these images. This is what happens if you put Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky and Hilary Clinton together. Look at their body language… and look how Carine graciously distanced herself from Anna and Christian.

Anna Wintour, Christian Estrosi, Carine Roitfeld in Paris

A brilliant display of power (Anna) and sportsmanship (Carine) right there!

Dramalamama, aye caramba Anna Carinnenana. Doesn’t it look like a scene out of a movie? You know, a man, his wife and a mistress? I’ll let you decide who’s the apple and who’s the orange but lady number one looks immaculate in her well-fitted suit,
her luxurious chinchilla fur collar and of course, her impeccable
coiffure — not a hair out of sight. Meanwhile, lady number two is one sexy, hot cougarlicious mess: striking zebra
coat, ferocious trademark raccoon eyes and matching brothel hair. 

Upon further thought (yes, I know it doesn’t happen very often but unfortunately for me and you, I *do* like to exercise my brain from time to time to burn calories), I realized these photos represent a very bittersweet state of affairs. I could only imagine how intense, and to a certain extent, how embarrassing, it must have been to Carine that Mama Wintour is taking proactive measures — in her own turf.

Vogue Paris Collections Issue 9 – Spring/Summer 2010

20/12/2009, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Vogue Paris

Vogue Paris Collections Issue 9 – Spring/Summer 2010

The highly-influential French Vogue is renowned for their groundbreaking and superb, high-voltage, totally high fashion covers but this eyesore, my dearest friends, has got to be the WORST Vogue Paris Collections cover I've seen ever. I can't believe Carine signed approval on THIS mess.

Vogue Paris Collections Spring Summer 2010 Issue 9

THIS is what they released last season.

Vogue Paris Collections Fall Winter 2009 2010 Issue 8

I don't understand why they can't choose just one, beautiful runway image that defines the show season altogether.

Thoughts?

Or, in the words of Jason Derulo, whatcha say?

In other news, calling all HARDCORE Vogue Paris addicts… if you have a cool $1,050 lying around somewhere, you may want to check THIS out.
