Vogue Paris March 2010: Rose Cordero

Rose Cordero looks stunning in Louis Vuitton as shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the cover of the March issue of Vogue Paris; the colors and textures of the photograph pay tribute to the military trend while transcending it. The entire image glows, perfectly setting off Rose's radiant beauty. I cannot wait to see it in real life, I hope the foil matches the green in her eyeshadow to accent her singular eyes. This is my favorite cover since the brunette Lara Stone issue last September, simply elegant. Perhaps the March issue will herald the beginning of my subscription by post that I received as a lovely Christmas gift back in December... fingers crossed...

Me & The Roitfelds

They may not have included me in this gorgeous photograph but I am mentioned along with "the perfect social totems" Julia and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld as featured in the Fashion Week edition of New York Magazine.

Indeed, there’s an entire website slavishly devoted to tracking the family; it’s called I Want To Be A Roitfeld and is run by a Carine-possessed woman who goes by the pseudonym Kellina de Boer (though her phone number, and accent, are registered in Norwell, Massachusetts). Early on, one commenter, who Kellina is convinced is Julia, wrote, “hey girl writing on my family… you are a freak! spend your time on something more constructive!” Now, the blogger says, “if I write something that’s not true, she lets me know.” Julia, for her part, denies ever commenting on her site. “It’s flattering, but it’s scary at the same time."*

—Carl Swanson, "Les Enfants Are All Right"

Note that I would fit in with my coloring.

*It's equally scary that I never actually gave any telephone number to Carl Swanson. For the record, my phone, my accent, and I do not reside in Norwell, Massachusetts.

Carine Roitfeld On Alexander McQueen

Carine Roitfeld pays homage to the brilliant designer on the Vogue Paris site and her tribute is quite touching. Below is the translation from French to English of Carine's statement.

Alexander McQueen n'était pas seulement un créateur visionnaire et jusqu'auboutiste mais aussi un showman hors pair. Son savoir sur l'art de la coupe était inégalé. La boutique McQueen est l'une des seules où je me précipitais chaque saison. Ses basiques étaient mes basiques. J'interprète son geste comme son ultime liberté loin des démons qui semblaient le hanter depuis toujours.

Alexander McQueen was not only a visionary and diehard creator but also an outstanding showman. His knowledge of the art of the cut was unequalled. The McQueen boutique is one of the few that I rush to each season. His basics were my basics. I interpret his gesture as his ultimate freedom far from the demons that seemed to haunt him forever.
