Like Fashionologie, I too was counting down the days until the special guest-edited issue of Vogue Paris would be coming out especially as the guest-editor in question is Charlotte Gainsbourg. An interesting choice because though she is a muse to Nicholas Ghesquiere and is the face of Gerard Darel, she doesn’t strike me as a ‘fashionista’ or perhaps, there lies the beauty of letting her loose on the magazine. I haven’t gotten hold of the issue but having seen these scans…well I now know what will be weighing me down when I come back from Paris on Sunday and what I’ll be holed up with a cup of tea
‘La Science du R√™ve’ (a word play on the ‘Everyone-must-watch-at-least-one-because-it’s-so-fantastically-brilliant’ film Les Sciences du R√™ve – The Science of Sleep which Gainsbourg starred in last year), shot by Craig McDean has Charlotte Gainsborg in the new season’s artful, fantasy dresses as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Despite my slight ‘Meh’ towards Prada’s footwear, I must say everything has been used to stunning effect here. There’s a also a quiet seductiveness in the way Charlotte poses along with the help of the tastefully sexy Sabbia Rose hoisery that makes the images even more alluring.
