Kate in McQueen
I still claim that my invitation was lost somewhere in the mail. Kate’s wedding was the wedding to be at, and such a darling wedding at that. Who cares about the royal wedding nonsense when the Kate Moss is getting married?
First off, I want to thank Anna Wintour for not only providing a lovely cover, but providing us all with a brilliant idea for the September issue: Kate’s wedding. She is but the queen, am I right?
Going through the photos, some big names were in attendance at her wedding. There was Stella McCartney and her father, Paul McCartney, Jack White and Karen Elson, Hamish Bowles, Naomi Campbell, Marc Jacobs, Daphne Guinness, Lara Stone, and many others were all their to witness the nuptials and the soiree that happened after. Such a charming celebration it must have been.
For photos, follow the cut or go to Vogue.com. I know I will be purchasing this issue the moment I find it on newsstands.

Round two for Lara in Vogue Paris’s 90th Anniversary issue. Lara and Steven Klein teaming up always seems to have this sexual, tragic context to their editorials. It bothered me for some time how Steven is always so referential with his previous works lately, but here it works in a stunning portrayal of sins.
The story begins with the prideful Lara who looks down on her manservants, clad in perverse drag. Stone follows through with gluttony; her caviar-covered subject is the topic of her desires. While gazing and admiring herself in a mirror, the amount of greed shows no mercy when it comes to vanity. Her behaviors have led to unnecessary wheeling around, displaying her true slothfulness. In the end, Lara spots the two together in lust and falls into despair from envy, resulting with her wrath from her golden gun.

Let’s kick of everyone’s week with a breathtaking and dark masquerade, lensed by Mert & Marcus. The 90th Anniversary issue of Vogue Paris will be in my possession as soon as I can attain it in this college town. This is one of two editorials featuring cover model, Lara Stone, and she is joined by an elite cast of models. Carine handled the styling quite superbly; the skeleton, the Givenchy crown of thorns and the Treacy creations are such wondrous and what my dreams are made of. Magnificent.

Back in 2009, CNN did a small documentary, much like Dolce & Gabbana’s, and it was fairly interesting. Carine is the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris and very much as influential as Anna Wintour, albeit in varying ways. If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth your time.
I love Vogue Paris! If someone could get me a subscription to look at Carine Roitfeld’s genius, that would be greatly appreciated. In the May issue, Carine styles, Steven Klein shoots, and Lily Donaldson models in an Haute Couture tribute to the late, great Alexander McQueen. Dressed in Margiela, Dior Haute Couture, Lily is this powerful woman in Erotica that gives visual reminders to a phase in Madonna’s career mixed with a tablespoon of Grace Jones and a 1/4 cup of Annie Lennox. Bitch clearly werk’s it and is flawless nonetheless. Haute couture is the highest form of fashion, has the most craftsmanship, and is the most beautiful. It’s just what I needed to see.
