Carine Roitfeld: VMAN Calendar

In February, Carine Roitfeld served as guest editor for VMAN Magazine and I am sorry it has taken so long for me to get around to discussing it. In addition to styling the editorials for the magazine, Carine created a 2012 calendar of Victoria's Secret models that was every bit as sexy as her infamous Vogue Paris calendars. I want to applaud Carine for effectively taking up the slack of her successor at Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt, who denied readers the pleasure of the annual calendar this year as well as the beloved concept of a guest editor with her December issue.

In case you missed it, I have added Carine's VMAN calendar to the archive, featuring models Doutzen Kroes, Joan Smalls, Lily Donaldson, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, Izabel Goulart, Candice Swanepoel, Ana Beatriz Barros, Alessandria Ambrosio, Anne Vyalitsyna, Chanel Iman, and Karolina Kurkova as photographed by Willy Vanderperre.

I would also like to take this opportunity to look back at a few of the calendars produced by Carine during her reign at Vogue Paris, including my personal favorite, the imaginative 2008 VP calendar which has hung in a spot of honor on my wall since December of 2007 when it arrived with the Charlotte Gainsbourg issue.

Which of Carine's Vogue Paris calendars is your favorite? What do you think of her calendar for VMAN?

I went to a forum at Harvard U. sponsored by the Mass. General Hospital's research on bulimia and anorexia.. Health and Beauty.
Gust speakers were Ariana Huffington, Editor in chief of Italian vogue, and the incredible beauty, Doutzen Kroes.

Wow, Mimi, what luck! I read about Franca Sozzani's intense preparations for her speech, I imagine it was an excellent forum. I would love to hear more about it from you if you have a chance.

The calendar is both creative and beautifully done! Love the "veils" and the soft/sharp imagery.

My pleasure, Michael!

I utterly agree with your analogy, Sarah. Glory days for both magazines.

Ah Kate! I was thinking of you when i saw this, I knew you would vibe with the stockings as veils.
