Emmanuelle Alt chose three generations of supermodels–Daria Werbowy, Stephanie Seymour and Lauren Hutton–to cover Vogue Paris‘s November issue. The focus of the issue, according to Vogue Paris’s website, is beauty and timeless elegance, hence the very simple matching outfits and iconic model cast.
On the one hand, it does look a bit like a ’90s Gap ad and we’re sure Fashion Spot commenters are complaining about Alt’s lackluster styling. But on the other hand, it’s kind of amazing. Alt chose a great cast of gals who look awesome together, photographed beautifully by Inez & Vinoodh, and the simple outfits definitely highlight each woman’s beauty.
And while this isn’t the first time Alt has decided to dress three ladies (including Daria Werbowy) in the same outfit for a cover, it’s not every day you see jeans on a Vogue cover–let alone high-waisted ’90s mom jeans. When Anna Wintour did it for American Vogue‘s November 1988 issue, it was groundbreaking and we can recall very few instances of it happening since.
What do you think? Did Alt get it right this time?
