French Vogue - April

I picked up a couple of Vogue magazines while I was in Europe and thought it'd be fun to go through and highlight some things that I thought were interesting and compare the US, French and British versions.  I wish I would've gotten a May edition of French Vogue for this comparison but April was the only one on the stands and I got distracted by a croissant so we'll have to make do.

This crocodile (or is it an alligator?) caught my eye immediately

I want every piece in this picture

There was quite a bit of topless nudity in the photoshoots and ads which I guess is not such a big deal in France.  I thought this one particular photoshoot using two ballet dancers was particularly beautiful.

Most of the magazine showcased items delicate and feminine items like this which seems to fit the Parisian aesthetic

Then there were pictures like this which were a bit confusing but striking nonetheless

And last but not least my favorite ad from French Vogue

  1. That is a great idea -- wish I would have thought to bring home a bunch of Italia Vogues! These images are so beautiful, such great highlights.
