Vogue’s ageless issue
The best thing about this month’s Vogue? Well it’s a toss up between Stella Tennant’s cover; her main fashion shoot (in which she’s styled in miltary fatiques and louche satins); and Laura Weir’s 14-page feature on 90s supermodels.
The cover proves that, contrary to yesterday’s ‘Quote of the Day’ post, not all models need a gazillion Insta followers to succeed. (Side note: it’s also making me wonder if I should grow my hair a bit longer and tuftier a la Tennant.) Here’s a peek at the main fashion shoot, shot by Craig McDean and styled by Kate Phelan …
On the down side, the comments on The Fashion Spot are rather telling. Sample quotes: “Looks like a supplement cover, it’s extremely dull. hate what she’s wearing too. Guess this will appeal to older ladies though, looks like their style.” And, “this is like a More or Martha Stewart’s magazine cover. Sooo boring and bland.” Ouch! But I am sensing that younger fashion followers are growing bored of the Cos-slash-Celinification of fashion and want more pizzazz. Which isn’t surprising, since we’ve had nearly ten years of austerity minimalism. Don’t worry kids, I’ve a feeling the pizzazz revival will be along any minute. For now, let us oldies enjoy our relevance…

I blogged about this too. Love the cover, love Stella Tennnant, she’s one of my favourite models. And it does not look like an advert for ‘menopausal medicine!’ I am so wearing my wide leg chinos & tuxedo jacket like that third pic down (in the fashion shoot).
