Looks to me like they've used three different fonts to create the look: One is the large 'G' in the background, the second is a fancier 'G' that is smaller than the first, and the third is a white lowercase 'g' that overlaps the others.

Hope this helps--sorry that I can't identify any specific fonts!

^ You're right, they've used 3 separate fonts but placed them ontop of one another

The classic looking 'G' and 'g' are both Bauer Bodoni, although I think it's a specially edited version for Vogue Paris...because some of the lines are extremely light compared to the original Bauer Bodoni typeface collection, you can download the font for free here: [http://www.webpagepublicity.com/free-fonts-b2.html] (at the top) - and it's available to download Regular, I, B, and IB

The Circus looking 'G' font is Dogwood and that can be downloaded again for free at [http://abstractfonts.com/search/Dogwood]

Lately I've been frequenting Typesites, a blog of sorts that features websites with great typography! It's so fun - their latest entry featured a site that helped New Yorkers find nearby public restrooms!

ah so cool to see we have this thread! I've always loved font and typefaces and just watched that documentary on Helvetica last week. There's something about a great typeface that is just very stunning and inspiring

Do you have more info on this? I can only find that it's from David A. Hobbs, Inc. & Tolley Studios - but little more, nowhere to download or buy?

edit: hard to find a good picture of the dries logo, but it actually looks like a copperplate-ish typeface. The nina ricci logo I'm pretty shure is a custom face

edit2: I'm pretty shure miu miu also is a custom typeface, but it's possible something similar excist
