Model: Anne Hathaway
Photographer: Mario Testino
Publication: Vogue November 2010So I’ve said it time and time again but after a while one gets tired of saying it and it’s just time to do it. I’ve finally gotten around to blogging about the magazines I get. Let’s not give excuses as to why it has taken me so long to get around to it, let’s just jump into Vogue‘s November 2010 issue, featuring Anne Hathaway on the cover in a burgundy Oscar de la Renta dress, antique diamond earrings from Dary’s and a Bulgari diamond-and-yellow-gold-bracelet. While I didn’t love the cover, I did like it. I felt that it was appropriate, which is the adjective that I have begun to use to describe Vogue as a whole. The publication, the cover, and this issue, were all very appropriate.
Flipping through the issue I couldn’t help but notice how wordy it seemed. The body copy seemed to go on for days! Take Hamish Bowles‘s article for example, I counted 4 pages. Vogue subscribers are actually finding that they actually have to read Vogue now. Oddly though, the amount to read about fashion seemed lacking.
- I did enjoy reading about “It Girl”, Karlie Kloss‘s, experiences at Fashion’s Night Out. Then again, I love Karlie to bits.
- Andre Leon Talley‘s review of the Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 collection began with that before going on to speak of it as hedonistic, directional and relevant. You know that I only lapped that review up.
- “The Aluminati” was a nice feature as well but I found myself only interested in Alexander Wang, the 2008 CFDA winner. Luckily, he received the biggest feature of the bunch.

So this issue included small features on the CFDA Finalists and these would have to be my favorite two. As you all know Prabal Gurung(left)was no doubt one of my favorite shows of the Summer/Spring 2011 show season and it just so happens that I didn’t really pay attention to the menswear shows that happened during New York Fashion Week. Because of this Loden Dager(right) almost slipped through the cracks. Thankfully though, the brand did not and has in fact secured a place in my heart… now only if we can transfer that to my closet!
This editorial, shot by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by fashion editor Tonne Goodman, was my favorite of the issue. It was a tough decision, with Grace Coddington‘s two spreads putting up a good fight, but in the end, Sasha Pivovarova won out.
