besides, Julia became quite a tastemaker in the past few years, not to mention a pretty successful model with several campaigns under her belt already.

that's not true. with American Vogue, i always have the issue that is seems to be 'one page - one designer', pretty much the same styling and combination as seen on the runway, just on a different girl (if that) and in a different location.

Carine, at her best, filled her magazine with editorials where the models would wear a mixture of different brands, mixing high and low (i remember one, i think the model had a huge afro, and she wore a Haute Couture jacket with a pair of jeans from H&M). imo Vogue Paris presented a way to wear those individual designer pieces, standout pieces, to combine and mix & match.

Vogue US generally lacks that kind of fun imo.

Don't tell me that you think she deserved those campaigns and that she didn't get them thanks to Mom being VP's EIC...

i'd never say she actually DESERVED those campaigns (she's quite basic, even tho Tom Ford Black Orchid image make her look INCREDIBLE!). all i'm saying is that she DID get those campaigns (through whichever means) and that therefore she's in the public's eye.

^I get you. I think I just had a problem with the expression "successful model" I'd have rather prefered reading "basic it-girl whose mother is VP's EIC which explains why she got campaigns" but I guess that's a way too long adjective

... which they do every month. :p

Just like Vogue Italia will take a hot issue and parody or commentate on it with high fashion
Just like Vogue UK will pretend that everyone in Great Britain lives in London and vacations in the country
Just like i-D will have a bunch of mediocre covers, instead of one good one

Everyone's got their something. I'm not hating, just commentating.

I totally agree. Moreover Julia isn't just Carine's daughter. Her first occupation is to be an Art Director. I don't know who she works for but that could also explain her presenc eon the front row.

I'm bummed Carine leaving. The last few VP issues didn't float my boat but I think I might miss seeing Daria or Lara on the cover of VP every other month.

Wouldn't really be surprised if Alt got the EIC.

I can not believe in this. I love VP and without Carine, it wouldn't be the same magazine any more. Anyway Vogue love you Mum!!!

And who will be next EIC??? Emanuele could be great, she's got quite the same spirit as Carine. Katie Grand would be great too. Please no Anna Dello Russo in VP. I like her, but he doesn't fit there.

i don't know how to feel about this...
i hate that the advertisers could have so much power over the creative side of any magazine...
i don't think they should have any influence at all...frankly...
* call me an idealist, i know...

but...
i am not a big fan of the politics and back room deals that happen regularly in this industry ...

so-
part of me is thrilled that someone so high profile is having to deal with consequences for their inappropriate actions...
but ...
it's not the way i would have liked it to happen...
not because anyone threatens to pull their advertising...
but because it's simply not an ethical way to do business...
she was getting away with all of it...ALL OF IT>>>
until a big enough advertiser flexed their muscles...
and that is disappointing to me...
in general...
ethics and fashion don't seem to go together...
unfortunately...

on a related note...
conde nast, in general, has been cracking down on their magazines who aren't the most financially successful...
first W...now this...
i have been secretly afraid for some time now that they would try to do some sort of makeover at italian vogue actually...
because that is perhaps one of their least profitable publications, in terms of cold hard $$$
now THAT would truly be the end of an era...
and, in truth....
that might actually be the end of Fashion ...with a capital F...

let's just hope that vogue italia isn't next on the conde nast chopping block...

I remember Franca Sozzani mentioned in interview with Aliona Doletskaya that Vogue Italia is one of the best-selling Vogue's and especially in New-York it's best selling foreign magazine (not only among fashion titles)

Honestly, I won't feel the same. I'm tired of seeing daria and lara on the cover. I would like to see some celebrity on the VP cover for once...

^ There're at least 2 covers of celebrity each year.
Aren't celebs who are on the cover of US/UK Vogue, enough?

^^ Noooooooo!!! I don't want to see celebs on VP covers. It's enough to see them in US and British Vogue. For me VP and VI are great, because they DON'T use celebrities. And if they do, they choose well. No crap, just beautiful stories.


The worst part of this is, that probably magazine will be changed. And probably not in a good way. I'm tired of all those conservative mags, that don't deliver any emotions. VP was outstanding. And I will miss that for sure.
