    I should have guessed! It's just been this year that Vogue's become really bad about putting Caroline in nothing but studio edits. Even last November, December, there were some really lovely editorials of her with actual scenery shot by Arthur Elgort, Meisel, Demarchelier. Why can't Anna put more of those in!

    thanks LUXX...

    Raquel's editorial is good... i always like Couture editorials.... But I have questions :
    Why Raquel is so offffttten hair-styled with this weird triangle haircut????? I mean it's not the first time and not the lassst....
    and WHY, OH WHY do they always need to set the Couture editorials in such a french XVIIIth Noblesse decorum????? it's beautiful, ok... but c'mone... that's not the only thing in Paris.... Made a clash of themes/cultures would be more interesting... like shooting in Palais de Tokyo with Raquel dressed the same (and hair-styled the same) but in Palais de Tokyo... would be fun, too.... much more fun actually...

    by the way aren't there more editorials than in the sept. issue????

    Here is the table of contents - I will be happy to scan any of the articles. Vogue US always has something interesting to offer in that department.

    I am scanning the Caroline / Sasha edit now. It will probably be the last thing I do before I go to bed (its almost 5 in the morning here :shock:) but I will resume scanning after my beauty rest :lol: as long as there is still stuff to scan.

    Berlin, I was wondering the exact same thing about the hair. I find it very distracting from both the beauty of Raquel's face and the overall theme of the photographs. This is not a particularly avant garde set up in terms of set up, as you said the French Noblesse decor and rather traditional photography call for a much softer look. I think it is an effort on the part of Vogue US to sort of say "Oh well look we can do edgy too" but somehow they forget the notion of context within this. There was no need for such distracting hair, absolutely no need. The clothes / setting / model / hair / makeup / etc should all mesh together perfectly to create a powerful image. When any one element is off the overall impact of the image is threatened.

    Guinevere van Seenus is in this again? Strange she's coming back all of a sudden.

    And what's with Vogue's obsession with weird hair!? :blink:

    I have a theory - the hair (the hat, the shadows) makes her face shorter and more interesting. Raquel photographs best, along with 90% of the world, from about 45 degree angle, and that hair makes those angles interesting enough. I like the hair - in fact I think its's a daring detail that makes it work - along with those hats. Of course, I'm looking at this from the perspective of photography and beauty rather than style. From the perspective - lets shoot an editorial which depicts a realistic utilization of these clothes with a near perfect human being - the hair is a problem. It obviously wouldn't work. For the editorial, though, it adds an excentricity to Raquel that I see little evidence of elsewhere.
