I am going to differ from the majority here and say that I actually kind of like this editorial. Say what you want about this girl, but I love her clomp and dare I even say it’s fierce, all the way down to her cute, smug look. The photography here is weak and I first thought it was Terry Richardson shooting this, but putting that aside, I like Karlie grown up. I love her smoking, because you feel she’s too young and shouldn’t be doing so, but all the while, it’s slightly bad ass, eh?

How fabulous are these girls? Remove Carmen and Edie with maybe Abbey, Anja or Natasha and we have a perfect list in this UK Vogue dedicated to stars. True supermodels Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer are joined with seasoned veteran Angela Lindvall and a list of my favorites. Golden and beautiful.
The perfect excuse to postpone studying for my exam tonight. I’m not much on ’80s and ’90s floral, but Louis Vuitton did it so well for Fall’s ’50s and ’60s feminine silhouettes. The styling of Vogue China’s cover gives this a light, airy feel to offset these stunning creatures: Patricia Van Der Vilet and our beloved trotting Karlie. Inside the issue, we are welcomed to an exaggerated chicness, full of Lanvin and Givenchy we could spot out from a sea full of brilliance. Add some Maison Martin Margiela and some wigs, and here you have an editorial that is acute and on point.

How adorable is Karlie Kloss and the rest of the models who can’t lip sync or dance? Also, why did I have to be reminded of Marc Jacobs’s show. The literal interpretation was horrifying, it was something only Jodie Foster could love. I understood the YSL and Taxi Driver references, but the questionable usage of fabrics and the whole aesthetic. I’m at a lost for thoughts. I keep telling myself it did not happen/it’s not that bad, but here’s to hoping he’ll pull through with Louis Vuitton and eventual campaigns. It will grow on me, right? Right?
Finally, I got the editorial from Vogue UK’s October issue I wanted. I’m hoping now I don’t ever have to see that cover with Cheryl ColepossiblyTweedybutIthinkshe’sstillCole. I’m sorry if I offend any Girls Aloud lover or UK fan, but she is the most popular from this musical act and I cannot stand the woman, even if she may possess the best hair that man has ever seen. Every nonsense pole they have across the pond, they are naming her “best dressed” and “most beautiful woman ever”. She’s a pretty lady, but I hardly think the most of those titles. Also, why is she clutching those flowers as if they were her wedding bouquet and she wants the world to know she’s not ready to move on, alluding to the fact she may end up like Miss Havisham. Girl, your man cheated. Do me a swift one and rethink this situation.
Now, what I’m really here for is Karlie. I am informed that this subject is not anything new or surprising from the photographer, but Karlie has such wonderful pose and brilliance, I’m glad the kid is at the top of the game. From Dior and Givenchy HC to Gaultier, the styling is superb and on point, and Karlie plays the role of a Russian doll exquisitely.

Everything about this show is so splendid. Besides the occasional Ralph Lauren, Americana-chic isn’t my immediate favorite, but this is absolutely refreshing already. Also, Karlie’s walk is particularly solid and precise in that red trench, she works it every single time.
The classiest 18-year-old you’ll ever see. What I really hope is that she just stays clear of Terry Richardson now that the girl is of age. I’ll admit that I have a guilty pleasure for Terry; you love what’s bad for you right? I mean, that’s why I can indulge in McNuggets guilt-free and 12 and 47-year-old women – that undoubtedly spend their times scrapbooking and talking to their cats – look to Justin Bieber as some sexual, talented god of music, am I right? That’s some Kool-Aid I don’t want to drink from, but back to Terry. I just never want her to lose her innocence and to always remain the HBIC. So note: stay away from her, Terry, but feel free to hit me up.
