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.

Obviously, Kate will not be kept off of a September Issue, nabbing them yearly, this one being the cover girl for UK Vogue. It’s absolutely very Kate, shot by Patrick Demarchelier and I need to get it. I’m reading random thoughts about how it’s the same-old Kate, but I feel that’s the point. She has a very definitive personal style and image, that’s why she’s such a successful model for over 20 years now. She’s my love. My only concerns is the “Minimal Chic” headline. Well, all of them are bad, but this one in particular better be talking about a separate editorial that doesn’t include Burberry and Balmain, because that would be the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard. That would be like saying Lindsay Lohan is a quaint, quiet, girl-next-door who always did well in school and thought sex was best left for after marriage. Right, crazy talk. I’m sure that editorial, if I could place bets, will include a lot of Celine. Ready, Philo-atics?!
Vogue UK really hit it perfectly. This editorial is so superbly styled while being modeled by my favorite, Karlie, we really get a glimpse of everything perfect to come this Fall. From Prada’s knits, Burberry’s streetwear, to Chloe’s minimalism, and Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana’s approaches to a womanly figure. These are the perfect snapshots to know what to expect this Fall.

She’s one of my girls, a force to be reckoned with in the modeling agency. Her appearance is so interesting, which is why she’s so successful as a model. Her teeth aren’t perfect, she has a strong brow line with piercing eyes, she can look innocent and sweet. The list goes on and on. Mario Testino shot her for the May edition of Vogue UK and it’s full of intricate, beautifully made gowns. I wish these were directly from the pages so I knew what gowns were which. I believe a spot a Dior. I love the liquid stockings. Cerulean is a prevalent color, keep that up for spring and summer people! The origami dress is brilliant. The feathered piece, well the photos is the wallpaper on my computer. Beautiful.
My icon, Kate Moss, does yet another editorial for Vogue UK and it’s classic Kate. I don’t care what anyone says, she’s the ultimate, very definition of supermodel, and don’t even get me started on how that term is thrown about so loosely. Willy Vanderperre photographs my favorite and the results are lovely.
