I have a feeling you may have nailed it @Thanatos. Can totally see Catherine as La Liz esp after the story ('Just Like a Lady' i think it was called) she did in last September's Vogue Australia which was sublime. It would be so fitting too if Testino is the photog and V is the mag and Carine is the stylist that will mark her big return to the glossies.
I'll be disappointed if after all this excitement it's just a run of the mill Numero edit. I was really hoping for something high quality but she never seemed to get the best work even when she was working. It's so disheartening seeing the same models in magazines over and over again, the September issues are showing up now and still no sign of Cat.
I understand the frustration waiting for the ed, Im dying myself to see it, but lets not forget Cat has had some truly exquisite editorial moments in VP VI USV W V along with her campaign turns for Dior LV Givenchy Versace and on and on. But I am getting curious if its gonna end up being in an Oct edition? Still holding out hope that you are right @Thanatos and it's gonna be the Testino mega-ed in the Sept V.
