Miuccia Prada is a Vogue cover girl

Miuccia Prada Vogue March cover 24

UK Vogue had 40 celebs on its cover, but US Vogue has Miuccia Prada. I know which one I’m more thrilled about!

While fashion lore ascribes its creation to Jean Cocteau, it was in fact designed by Louis Cartier. (Cocteau was an avid fan though, so that’s endorsement enough for me.)

Bonus points here for Harry Lambert’s styling and Indigo Lewin’s photography. Never not loving an extreme close-up cover and a skinny leather tie… (more…)
