All of Vogue Paris's fonts are custom made by M&M Paris. You may be able to find something similar to the other text but the red headline is 100% custom.

^thanks, GivenchyHomme! do you know if VP is the only edition of VOGUE which uses custom fonts? or uses an outside design firm for this purpose?

You can look at a font and say 'ah yes, that's so 1970s-I'm-horseback-riding-in-the-Hamptons' or 'that's so 1988-i'm-at-the-mall-going-to-see-my-first-pg13-film'. I guess in a roundabout way, I'm trying to say it's evocative
I know it's an old post but ... I can't sleep anyway.

Actually you sure can tell from which decade some font is if you know something about it, because every decade's graphic design and therefore typography has it's own rules and features.
I'm sure everyone who knows a little about graphic would recognize, let's say, a font designed during Bauhaus or De Stijl period, then Swiss design was very strong in the 50's
with their International typographic style and then 60s with Hoffman & Miedinger's Helvetica and all the golden ages of advertisement and so on and so forth. Not to mention
the electronic revolution which took design and even more - typography to a whole new level.
Sure we are looking back for inspiration and ideas because we have to, because 'rules' and good aesthetic were made then. So called 'retro graphic design' is now even more popular
than it was in the 80's and 90's, it became legendary, a good standard.
