Leave it to Vogue Italia to blend two things that don’t go together (QVC and designer labels) into one hilarious (and dead-on) spoof editorial (and video).
Creating satirical, off-beat and controversial shoots is kind of Vogue Italia’s thing, and while past editorials (ahem, Karlie) got everyone riled up for all the wrong reasons, this QVC-themed one will have everyone talking in a good way. The faux-presenters do an excellent job of imitating the show hosts’ perma-smiles and we particularly like Michelle Harper’s cameo. But what’s the deal with the Smith Jerrod look-alike? Not that we’re complaining…
According to the magazine’s website the shoot is an “artistically ironic simulation of telesales programs, nowadays much in vogue in the United States.” Okay. But if there’s one thing you can count on from Vogue Italia, it’s that they won’t take themselves too seriously. “All prices, telephone numbers, deadlines, that is to say all the writings superimposed onto the images are invented and have no reference to reality,” the magazine states on their website. “It is only a game.”
Except we kind of wish it wasn’t: We’d start tuning into QVC a whole lot more if they started carrying Chanel!
