I’m not a regular Vogue reader, but I always get the September issue each year. It’s the biggest and the best, and an art history professor of mine once said it’s the cheapest way to own a huge collection of pop art. I like that idea, plus I find the ads inspiring, so I’ve been perusing it for a couple of weeks now. That is actually hard to accomplish while lying in bed, since this particular issue always weighs a ton.
I thought it would be fun to share a few features with you, sort of a “This and That” for Vogue, and I’m not giving away any secrets, since it’s officially September now and the issue has been on stands for weeks. So, here are a few things from the September Vogue that caught my eye.
I’ve always been intrigued by Carla Bruni, Madame Sarkozy, the former first lady of France. She has a background as a model and singer, and she’s now the face for Bulgari. Admittedly, I was shocked to see the extremely long ad in the magazine (it’s at least 15 pages, including a fold-out section), but then I read this Huffington Post article and thought twice. It makes sense that Bruni should return to her roots now that her official duties are over, and though it’s not something an American first lady would do, it’s pretty awesome. Plus, think of all the jewelry she gets to wear.
This has got to be the most fabulous wedding I’ve ever seen. That dress alone deserves a place in the Vogue archives.
I love Adam Driver as much as the next girl, but this Ireland-inspired photo spread, complete with a shirtless Driver wearing a live sheep over his shoulders, borders on ridiculous. Let’s hope all this attention doesn’t go to his head, kid.
It’s not too late to score a copy of the September issue, and it makes for wonderful bedtime reading. And weight-lifting.
