We’re back! After a summer vacation and a sudden decision to redecorate and rearrange the organization of a hefty magazine collection, we can now resume our weekly Fashion Flashback Series. While transporting some copies of Vogue Paris, we came across the September 2006 edition with its multi-girl concept and a foiled gold masthead for dramatic effect.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a scan that does the cover justice (ours wouldn’t pick up the gold fonts). Therefore, only those who have the issue at hand truly know just how beautiful the cover really is. Although, who’s concerned about the colors and text placement, when we have the likes of Jessica Stam, Snejana Onopka, Sasha Pivovarova and Gemma Ward on the cover, shot by Craig McDean and all decked out in Chanel?

It seems McDean shot the three main fashion stories for the issue, too. As if the four cover stars weren’t enough already, the issue is full of model spreads. Carine Roitfeld and McDean worked with Carmen Kass, Iselin Steiro, Raquel Zimmermann, Natasha Poly, Tasha Gilbert, Anja Rubik, Angela Lindvall, Missy Rayder and many more faces for the issue. Talk about nailing a September issue full of surprises!
