Vogue Paris December/January 07.08 : Charlotte Gainsbourg by Craig McDean
TRANSFORMERS: Artist Cindy Sherman, in Paris for Tuesday's Balenciaga show, slipped into a character that takes over many of the city's visitors: shopaholic. "We went to Dries Van Noten, Azzedine Alaïa," she rattled off. "I haven't been to a fashion show in Paris for about 15 years." Sherman, who had modeled looks from Balenciaga's fall collection for an eye-popping feature in the August issue of Paris Vogue, said she plans to continue doing works in a similar vein.
Meanwhile, Charlotte Gainsbourg revealed a Paris Vogue project of her own: She's guest editing its holiday issue. A few generations of French actresses also took in the show, including Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Amira Casar and Clémence Poésy.
