Oh, we remember this like it was yesterday. We can even recall the second we noticed the forum thread title loading before our very eyes and almost dropping down with excitement. For this week’s Flashback Series, we take a look back at the February 2008 issue of Vogue Paris. The cover features none other than two of modeling’s most iconic pairings, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. Shot by Mario Testino, the dynamic duo posed together wearing dresses from Louis Vuitton, styled by Carine Roitfeld.
The excitement wasn’t only over the fabulous cover shot — the content was overwhelming! The supermodels posed for a set of images inside the issue, also lensed by Testino, who shot the long-term buddies in black and white. To mark the one year anniversary of Anna Nicole Smith’s death, Emmanuelle Alt and Terry Richardson shot Natasha Poly channeling the lifestyle of the late Playboy model. We see Poly caring for an elderly man, while being showered with expensive gifts from Chanel, Cartier and Louis Vuitton. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot Lily Donaldson in the Hollywood Hills looking like a real-life doll, while Peter Lindbergh photographed Isabeli Fontana resembling Amy Winehouse. The issue was certainly a nod to our modern culture!
