Entries in vogue paris (5)


at home with inès de la fressange

I'm a day late and a dollar short, but did you see the December/January issue of Vogue Paris? It was all about Inès de la Fressange. My favorite editorial in the publication, of course, was this feature on her Parisian home. A few years ago, I posted two photos of her flat as seen in a British Vogue piece. Much to my delight, this Vogue article gives us a much more in depth look at the space. I love her trademark pink walls and the home's overall feeling of easy, lived-in elegance. Also, I'm dying for my own giant chalkboard wall. Inès is a genius!  


bon bastille day!

Being the francophile I am, I just had to post something fun in honor of Bastille Day! So, I scoured the internet in search of vintage Vogue Paris covers - these are my favorites. Did you know that there’s a book dedicated to the magazine's covers alone? Paris Vogue Covers: 1920-2009 was published last year (it’s now at the top of my Amazon wish list). Vive la France! 


tom ford's return to womenswear

I find the top-secret debut of Tom Ford’s first womenswear line in over six years to be endlessly fascinating. Ford, who detests our culture’s “need for immediacy,” decided to hold a private viewing of his collection for 100 of Fashion’s most influential journalists and editors; no photographers, save for his own camera crew, were invited.

His was no ordinary show. He chose to use women who are influential to him to model his collection, personally introducing them by name as they walked down the runway. While photos (and a video) of the line will not be released until December, the headshots of Ford’s models somehow leaked to the press. As you can see in the image above, the lineup included the likes of Daphne Guinness, Beyoncé, and Karen Elston… a star-studded event, if I do say so myself! Cathy Horyn of the New York Times reports that the collection included, “...sharp pantsuits in black silk or a leopard pattern… sheer blouses… and stilettos with ankle ties and seamed black stockings.” Swoon! Word on the street is that Ford’s collection will appear in an editorial in the January issue of Vogue Paris… are you excited? I certainly am :)


une fille un style: gia coppola

“One girl,” begins this article about Los Angeles darling Gia Coppola. “Granddaughter of Francis Ford, niece of Sophia, Gia Coppola is also the stepdaughter of Peter Getty and the cousin of Nicholas Cage,” the article continues to say. Pretty famous family, no? She’s stylish, too. Pam Skaist-Levy, founder of Juicy Couture, often uses Gia as her muse. “When I think of L.A. style and It girls, Pam told Harper’s Bazaar, “Gia always comes to mind. She’s like a modern-day, punk-rock Audrey Hepburn.” Originally published in the August 2005 issue of Vogue Paris, the piece went to press before Gia began directing films of her own. Her work is pretty cool (her style is similar to that of her famous Aunt). If you’d like, you can view some of her short films on her Vimeo channel. Keep this girl on your radar—she’s bound to be involved in some edgy + chic projects over the course of the next few years!


une fille un style: jade jagger

If there is one plus side to moving, it’s getting to go through allll of my books + magazine archives. This article about Jade Jagger was torn out of the Déc/Jan 05/06 issue of Vogue Paris (Une Fille Un Style is my favorite part of the magazine). I bought the magazine when I was still in high school-- I remember picking it up because I “needed” it to improve my comprehensive reading skills in my academic French class.. Improve my reading skills it did not, but it has remained on my inspiration board off + on for the past four and a half years! I die over her caramel Chanel + gorgeous fur. Jade Jagger is certainly une femme très chic, no?
