While the cover hasn’t gotten the warmest reception from Fashion Spot commenters, we like the fresh, effortless simplicity and how it showcases Casta’s natural beauty. Still, it’s a far cry from pre-Emmanuelle Alt covers and, as one commenter pointed out, a good example of how the aesthetic of Vogue Paris is changing under Alt’s direction. Case in point: on the right is how Carine Roitfeld styled Casta for the December/January 2009 issue. The two covers could not be more different–a testament to Casta’s versatility as a model as well as Roitfeld and Alt’s differing viewpoints as editors. But, is one “better” than the other?
