We know celebrities sell copies of fashion magazines. Usually stars just sit for an interview and an Annie Leibovitz portrait, but sometimes they're called on to perform more editorial duties. For years French Vogue has been noted for its December/January "Guest Editor" issue, for which they enlist the style-savvy services of icons ranging from Catherine Deneuve to Sofia Coppola to Kate Moss. As of late other magazines have been following their lead. Last spring we had a special edition of Self-Service with over 100 pages dedicated to cover girl Chloe Sevigny. This fall Kirsten Dunst plays fashion editor at LULA, with an entire spread featuring Polaroids from the actress's trip to Germany. When Charlotte Gainsbourg recently announced that she'll be taking over the reigns of this winter's French Vogue, we thought it sounded promising. Aside from being Nicolas Ghesquiere's muse, her fashion choices are classic with a twist, always imbued with that Parisian nonchalance. That doesn't escape the fact, however, that Charlotte is an actress-singer first, style star second. Are celebrity-edited magazines an insightful glimpse into clothes and personal style, or should celebrities leave the editing to the editors? --NATALIE GUEVARA
