In what can only be described as a mammoth sized editorial, the 64 page “ADN de la Mode”, features a unique blend of modeling veterans (Shalom Harlow and Malgosia Bela), runway queens (Natasha Poly and Lily Donaldson), fashion’s best faces (Eniko Mihalik and Lara Stone) and even a few surprises. As much as “la Mode” appears to focus on the models, Inez & Vinoodh were also able to capture the fall collections just as well (if not better) with the cumulative vision of Vogue Paris’ editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt, and Joe McKenna. By including such a large cast of models and highlighting such diverse designers, there is almost something for everyone to appreciate here in one way or another.

Today, a few new ads have surfaced.The first being Anja Rubik for Gucci Pre-Fall 2009 and the second having Iris Strubegger for Valentino.
Karl Lagerfeld plus a series of black and white images always seems to be a good combination. Add in model Anja Rubik and you have the perfect recipe for an incredible layout as seen in Vogue Nippon‘s “Into the Light”.
2006′s “Le Jeu” is a rare editorial which features one shot of each model yet still manages to stay cohesive thanks to concrete styling and aesthetic. Looking at the images, it is interesting to see how these particular models have changed over the past three years. Some, like Raquel Zimmermann and Natasha Poly, have managed to stay at the top of their game. While others such as, Gemma Ward or Iselin Steiro, took a break from modeling or have left the business altogether. Nevertheless, “Le Jeu” is up there with some of the greatest Vogue Paris editorials.
Natasha and Anja show off their gams for French Vogue‘s “A Toutes Jambes”. Innovative styling comes into play from fashion director, Emmanuelle Alt, who manages to implement stockings in a myriad of ways.
