Vogue September 2011: Kate Moss

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.

Muse #25 Spring 2011 : The Modern Muses

Hello, lovers! It’s been a while since I’ve written. Let’s start with a slew of covers for Muse, featuring Gisele, Jamie Bochert, Karen Elson, Isabeli, Malgosia Bela, Guinevere Van Seenus, and Carolyn Murphy. These are the magazine’s “modern muses” and take it how you like. My favorite of the covers has to be the the fare, and lovely Karen. From Karen’s modeling to her pretty music, I just love her. Such a striking, natural beauty. I’ll be posting her Vogue editorial shortly, too.

Also, where in the hell has Natasha been lately? She went all MIA on us for a while. While I’m at it, Carolyn’s cover, and I know a lot of people liked it, seems so in poor taste. She’s all, “give it to me, daddy,” and I don’t think I necessarily want it, no ma’am.

Vogue Nippon: Karen Elson

Vogue Nippon continues on into February of 2011 with another wonderful, signature cover featuring the already iconic and striking Karen Elson. When I watched the Prada livestream, I had absolutely no doubt that it would be featured everywhere in an endless amounts of editorials and covers. Obviously, this isn’t changing from last season’s Prada and Miu Miu. Karen is adorned with Prada’s colorful furs and the one Prada dress that keeps popping up. Whether you appreciated Miuccia’s efforts and recognize her genius or repulsed by her designs, I think we’re in for a vivid Spring season full of Prada-wear.

Flawless Louis Vuitton Campaign

Flawless. Veteran Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova head up Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2010/11 campaign and it is absolutely stunning. I love the line more than I did beforehand: the soft palette, the feminine silhouettes, the twill and interesting fabrics, that leather skirt, etc. The whole LV line is very reminiscent of Dior’s “The New Look” and let’s not forget those bags. I often find the normal bags with the logo tacky and boring, but these are exquisite. Much better than last season, Marc, even though I would have loved Lara again, you couldn’t have picked a better cast or have had a more interesting line.
