Do you like Sophie Marceau?
I adore her.
She was my teenage girl crush.
She didn't make it huge in America but she was all the rage in Europe and Asia with her film, La Boum.
Can you believe she is 47?
I love women who give growing old a good name.
Okay okay...I know she has had a few fillers but
I have known people to have proper nose jobs to no effect so
I won't hold a few fillers against anyone.
Not that Valentino need that much marketing but I love the simple and graphic element of these ads.
There is a Dior exhibition in Paris for those who are in the area.
Vogue France don't mess around when it comes to jewellry.
Whereas other countries' edition of Vogue reserve fine pieces to a special edition or issue, it seems Vogue France have a monthly editorial dedicated to bling.
Say what you like about black but it does show off most things to great effect and yet does its best to hide other things.
I love it.
I only added this picture because I love this image of a beautiful blonde in a leather jacket on a motorcycle and yet I am hardly the demographic for this image otherwise.
We all know that Parisian style and chic is revered.
I like it too.
But I thought this editorial was sooooooo Parisian and sooooooo chic that it was almost a pastiche of the stereotype.
The "Ooh la la, I am sitting on my desk with my thinking fedora
( cap for everyone else) on while smoking my gitanes cigarette that smells of Cire Trudon while composing my chanson" look.
The " I don't know how I get anything done while I am constantly puffing away on my ciggies especially in this very un-ergonomic styling while the carefully draped over the shoulder jacket keeps falling off " look.
The " I will stop smoking to tell you all of my favorite things
but I need my cigarette otherwise I get anxious and
as you can see I bite my nails " look.
I know what you are thinking...
Gosh Naomi is tough, what a &^%$*!
It's partly true.
But sometimes one has to be able to laugh no?
No one is safe but to be fair I take the mick out of myself!
I like and understand this editorial based on a tribal theme but
I do find the make up rather predictable.
I think they could have played on the notion of tribes but then it is a fashion magazine and not a nuanced editorial on society.
I should lighten up.
Daniel de la Falaise is the Jeffrey Steingarten of French Vogue.
It isn't a studied exploration of food but more of a recipe and mood.
This editorial reminded me of the Harper's Bazaar ballet editorial the other month but Ms Alt added her flair and edge.
It's a bit Flashdance-esque.
I used to wear leg warmers when my legs weren't cold and
I wasn't in a dance studio.
All these people are so darn cool that the mood overtakes the individual outfits though.
Except for this otufit.
I probably won't see this on any outfit of the day selfie soon.
There was another editorial that was an homage to pop culture.
Wasn't Thelma and Louise so groundbreaking?
I remember going to the cinema twice in one week to watch this.
Although these ladies look quite privileged so
I don't see the motive.
Maybe all dressed up and nowhere to go syndrome?
Normally one packs too much for trips but
these ladies have made the most of overpacking.
Here is another Helmut Newton image reference of Lisa Taylor in a similar position.
This is what the world thinks Sydney-siders do.
This Chanel swimsuit has my name all over it!
But I wouldn't want to get it wet so I wonder if I could wear it as a "body" and put a cardigan over it.
If you see anyone dancing around in a swimsuit like that it is a fashion shoot or one of those staged shoots for the Daily Mail.
No civilian does this.
I added this editorial as I thought the props were fun.
Celine is known to be the wardrobe of real women and yet this looks like a project runway episode outfit that was a homage to a freezing Madonna meets Jean Paul Gaultier.
Just to let you know that I won't be doing a June US Vogue review.
While it wasn't offensive it was rather dull so I hope you enjoyed browsing French Vogue.
