Inès de La Fressange’s double issue of Vogue Paris is soon to disappear from newsstands as the magazine gears up for the release of its brand new February issue. Emmanuelle Alt decided to give the magazine a makeover and hired Paris-based art directors Pierre Consorti and Zachary Ohlman to spruce up the magazine’s layout. Anna Ewers poses on the cover in Saint Laurent, captured by David Sims, with Alt on styling duty. The cover marks a second for the German model who previously fronted the magazine’s August 2014 issue. Alt sure does have her favorites!

Are our forum members impressed with the revamp? “I’m loving the fact that they went back to using the Carine era font. At least this isn’t a boring run of the mill cover like everyone else is doing. I can’t wait to see the collections editorial, they’re always my favorite,” posted an impressed GivenchyHomme.
“Personally, I think this looks fantastic. It is not your run-of-the-mill cover — Anna looks playful; there is a sense of humor to this. The new design also seems to reference the creative direction under Fabien Baron circa mid-2000s , which I appreciate,” added AL92.
LastNight shows much enthusiasm and writes, “I really love this a lot. I love the energy, it’s fun and a bit quirky. I love the color of the masthead and I LOVE the font, it looks so much better, really nicely designed cover. I might actually buy this!”
But not everyone’s in favor of the redesign. “It all works here, it’s fun, and Anna [has] captured the right energy. However, the new art direction is not good! Feels dated,” noted Miss Dalloway.
MON disapproves: “Can’t believe they hired two art directors and gave out that output. Anyone in the Cover Challenge can be paid then and do better.”
