We have been speculating about the guest editor for Vogue Paris‘ double holiday issue after receiving a hint that ‘someone French‘ would do the honors. Names like Léa Seydoux, Marion Cotillard and Sophie Marceau fluttered about, but yesterday it was revealed to be Vanessa Paradis. In true festive and celebratory fashion, French Vogue gifts us a selection of three unique covers to choose from. Vanessa stood before the lens of Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, David Sims and Karim Sadli for the occasion, sending us into a frenzy and our forums selected their favorite fairly quickly.
“Stunning surprise, and quite appropriate too!! I really want to like the I&V cover (above), but the pose is too OTT. The Sims one (below left) is a very good way to end the year. Perhaps one of Alt’s most memorable covers yet,” praised Benn98.
