^Judging by the previews, it seems this issue is nothing to be excited about.

Well, the preview doesn't help either. I'm already tired of that Dolce & Gabbana couture collection. But so surprised to see a Comme des Garcons feature!

look, for the whole history of paris vogue under emmanuelle i remember only 1 dignified issue - september 2012 (and its more an occasion by far), then Carine just resurrected duying publication in 2001 (i collect paris vogue since 1970`s so i know the whole story of publication firsthand), Emmanuelle obtained really good heirloom but at the moment she`s squander fortune as a black sheep from a noble family... lets be real: she just can`t afford that position- editor-in-chief, it`s not her place

I honestly can't understand people who reject an entire issue just be seeing five previews.

See inside Vogue Paris October 2012
"George Michael is an idol. From the happy-go-lucky days of Wham! to the steamy Faith-era leather bomber, and supermodel-packed video for Freedom, the British pop star's irresistible velvet tones make him something of a phoenix, able to transcend trends like no other," writes Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief Emmanuelle Alt, in her editorial for the October issue. George chose Kate Moss to feature in the video for his latest hit, White Light, and we've paid tribute by putting the pair on the cover of the latest issue. Once again, fashion meets music as the London duo vamp it up for Mario Testino, alongside Vogue girls Doutzen Kroes and Laetitia Casta, sublime in some of the most spectacular fine jewelry pieces from the Biennale des Antiquaires. We've also worked with new fashion faces for this issue, including Andam 2012 prize winner Julien David, and are showcasing work from some of the hottest new stylists in beauty around at the moment. With established icons rubbing shoulders with fresh new talent, the latest issue will go on sale September 24 along with the Au Pays de Heidi children's supplement.
Vogue Paris n931, on sale September 24.

Worst cover since 1920...the year when the first issue of Vogue Paris was published....



BTW the Sims & McKenna pages looks like deja-vu, remember the one styled by Grace Coddington anyone?

Ok ... So first of all, this looks like a Vogue British (or even worse a Grazia UK cover) ...
Why not shooting Johnny Halliday, who's probably gonna die soon ... Why not Polnareff ?
Emmanuelle Alt is a big fan of music, and as a lot of people around the world, pop and rock music influence her creative work. That's quite normal ... And that's for the better ...
* and do not forget Alt's video with Mlle Agnes, covering Wake me up by Wham. So I assume she is a huge fan of Mr. George Michael.

BUT ... Even though a cover with Kate Moss and George seems right on paper, the execution looks absolutely terrible ! Are they serious ? This looks cheap and amateur ... And we are talking here of Vogue Paris, my dears, not a random tabloid or third-rate level magazine !
If we take for instance Vogue Italia Paparazzi cover or Celebs covers, they were responding to a theme, a point of view of Fashion influenced by the boom of celebrities and their relationships with Fashion's democratization or their influence on trends etc. Meisel was observing that now a red-carpet is as much important as a Fashion ad campaign
... That, there was no longer a reason to ignore it !
Here, Ms. Alt realizes probably her fantasy as a fan of Mr. Michael to have him on a cover with her model-friend Kate Moss (icon of rock, and pop culture) ... But the execution is really really bad... That can be ok in an editorial, but ON a COVER !??! Seriously ?

And as for Kate's choice, I think having more supermodels would be more interesting. We all know the story of George with supermodels in the 90s (and those girls are still relevant, today, in Fashion Business) ... So why not shoot them ?

Alt and Testino vision, here, seems sooooo not interesting and low ...
