Numéro Paris March 2012: Karlie, Saskia, Aymeline

Karlie Kloss

There may be more covers coming, but I’m going to focus on these right now. I believe this may be Miss Kloss’s first shoot with Karl, so I’m going to say this is really major for her career. May she become a Chanel girl, amen. Covering in Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture, Karlie’s cover was the first to be revealed and obviously our girl is working it. Need the editorials ASAP.

Numéro #121 March 2011: Freja Beha Erichsen & Arizona Muse

Arizona isn’t my favorite newcomer by far, but editorial-wise, if she can bring it, girlfriend better to make up for her jank runway walk. I absolutely despise her runway and wish she’d go into hiding. Unfortunately, I believe the Paris runways will only bring more Arizona, but I’m hoping Freja makes her back to them, since she’s been absent and quiet all month, like most seasoned vets.

Now for the cover. I love it. There’s exquisite Chanel and the two look flawless. The editorial is much better with haute couture pieces of Givenchy, Elie Saab, and Armani Prive. We can’t wait for the high quality editorial images of what seem to be fairly impressive. Stay tuned.

Baptiste Giabiconi: Showtime

Lagerfeld’s muse won’t give up on his pop dreams. Unintentionally ridiculous, you can’t look away. Superpowers, a great head of hair, and the faint melody of Ke&*#$%a’s “Tik Tok” formulate this pop epicness and confusion. Shaking my head right now. Shaking it hard.

To quote:

Dear sweet Cheesus, Baptiste’s video is…amazing. He’s a telekinetic, bad-boy with a wardrobe that looks like the unholy union of Rock & Republic and Armani Exchange. Also, I kept getting distracted because I just kept thinking of that picture Karl has of him in his Paris studio. The one with the all of the Barbies and him Blue Steeling errwhere.

Chanel S/S 2011

Overall, a pretty show with powerful music, but…

1) Could do without the Canadian Tuxedo and the vast majority of the platform sandals.

2) I don’t think I can ever find an ounce of love for Carmen Kass, and maybe that’s half the reason why I could never fully appreciate Michael Kors, but that ridiculous, apricot feathered frock is making me salivate, not to mention the abundant usage of black feathers. I adore them.

The Big Chill

How laughably tacky and horrendous is this? I knew this had to be shot by the eye and hands of Karl and was I ever right. Abbey Lee looks wonderful and at the same time, makes me cry and reflect on all of the good times when her hair more natural like shown here; not bleached out and terrifying. She’s an adorable creature and shouldn’t succumb to over-processed hair, bad bangs or even a blast of makeup on high. So catalog.

Christy Turlington on Vogue Italia

Every time I see this cover of the next issue of Vogue Italia shot by Steven Meisel, it reminds me of how hilarious Chanel Fall/Winter 10/11 is with those little eskimo and silly Ewok furs that Karl sent down the runway with that real iceberg he had shipped from who knows where from. A life without Lagerfeld is a life I do not wish to see.
