Incredible! I hadn't seen such a good issue from VP in a very long time, not even in Carine's last years being the editor.
The only editorial that really lacks color for me is Nadja's, some of the shots would have been more fierce avec la couleur. Other than that, I would be pleased to cherish this forever at my house... I hope this is the first of many great pieces of work we will see from Alt's reign.

Kati is the perfect model for editorials with a certain nonchalant mood, like Le Noir Dans La Peau. I'm a sucker for those leather-themed stories that focus on the clothes... They're really effective, in my opinion. Haute Couture is the opposite for me: she looks forced and some shots don't work at all. The Chanel shot is gorgeous, though. The yellow background gives it an extra edge. I do actually like the bridal concept but it should've been better executed.
Too much Anja for my taste but her presence doesn't exactly bug me. The rest is really good. I would definitely get if it wasn't that expensive where I live.
Overall, it's a solid issue. Kudos to Emmanuelle and her crew!
Anja by Terry Richardson is flawless. The Nina Ricci bottles around Anja's leg is pure genius, I'm all for the small details like that. Glen Luchford's edit is fantastic also, I love the shot of Nadja wearing the Viktor & Rolf coat, Marie Chaix adds so much to the editorial. More often than not, I'd shun an editorial with David Sims for Vogue Paris. But most of the shots with Kati are nice, Emmanuelle Alt sure does rate her.
Another month that proves the other editions of Vogue aren't in the same league as the French one.
