nicole kidman graces the cover of december vogue in versace (donatella’s designs are also on the cover of bazaar this month)…the dress is gorgeous, nicole is not. the hair is a bit too frizzy and her “non-lipstick” lipstick is too pale for her alabaster skin.
the issue features three beautiful editorials: “silver screen dreams” by miles aldridge with a stunning angela lindvall and her son dakota, “garden of delights” by steven meisel featuring sasha, gemma ward, caroline trentini, and karen elson. this shot of gemma is so ethereal and gorgeous…the entire ed can be seen at style.com.
finally, there’s “where the wild things are” by arthur elgort, with caroline trentini in what has to be her most beautiful ed ever. elgort really captures her natural and “all-american” beauty (even though she’s brazilian), and the styling by tonne goodman is top-notch. herfamedgoodlooks has scans of the complete ed. the issue also features an interview with proenza schouler and pics of some pieces from their upcoming target line, and a preview of sophia kokosalski’s upcoming presentation for vionnet. this issue is a bit fuller than most december mags, and it’s packed with great editorials and articles; pick it up to read during your holiday travels.
