Couture Fall 08′ editorials, all around the world
See how the international Vogues (and one Numéro) pit against each other in terms of photographing the most expensive clothes on earth. Trivia: Meisel didn’t shoot any.

Talk about big budget. VI has an entire supplement issue dedicated to Fall couture with 4 editorials inside.
”The Honourable Daphne Guinness” by Steven Klein
Ok this, hands down, one of the best editorials I’ve ever seen done by a non-model. It screams ‘power’ to the max and it simply suits Daphne’s aura very well. This shot with the girl in a mini version of Dior couture is so achingly-cute.
”A Singular Beauty” by Paolo Roversi
Featuring a very solemn Guinevere van Seenus… actually, most of Paolo’s shoots are dark and moody.
Emma Watson by Mark Seliger
Maybe it’s because of her Harry Potter movie role… these reminds me of a fairytale, with Emma looking all princess-y. In some shots she looked too grown-up but overall, a great editorial.
”Valentino Haute Couture” by Miles Aldridge
Emmanuel Ungaro couture
Ok I was pretty surprised to see Ungaro couture…
”Handmade’s tale” by Patrick Demarchelier
It’s like every other US Vogue ed with Natalia…
”Hope & Glory” by Mario Testino
Kate Moss looks a little bored in this editorial. Plus, she almost has no makeup or any hair stylist, a rock version of couture?
”Cocktails at 7:00” by Terry Richardson
The styling is pretty interesting with the same old angry Lara in it but I like the lighting the most… I mean couture doesn’t have to be dark and dull all the time.
”Blame it to Paris” by Horst Diekgerdes
The platforms played up the entire editorial, Karmen Perdau is literally doing gymnastics on it but the locations are well, very parisian.
”La Couture” by Karl Lagerfeld
An all black & white ed by the Kaiser…
So which one is your favourite?
