When Carine Roitfeld left French Vogue, rumors circulated that one racy fashion editorial in particular was the reason for her firing. It featured children, like the now-infamous Thylane Blondeau, dressed provocatively in adult clothing and makeup, posing suggestively. It was a little creepy, as was much of Vogue Enfants.
So it’s no surprise to find that, like the rest of the magazine under new EIC Emmanuelle Alt, Vogue Paris’ children’s editorials have gotten a little more tame–which is definitely a good thing.
The glossy’s October issue features a new children’s supplement, which they’ve been promoting online over the past couple of days. There’s a market story about child-appropriate charm jewelry, which is adorable (even if some items are prohibitively expensive, especially for a child); and a “Child’s Weekend Guide to Paris,” filled with perfectly acceptable, if a bit unusual, activities like child workshops at Le musée des Arts Décoratifs and special yoga classes for kids aged 5-8.
We also found the full Heidi-inspired editorial (thanks, The Empress of Dress) and it is totally adorable, whimsical, and childlike. The Swiss Alps backdrop is great and the cozy styling is giving us Carven vibes and we legit want to own most of the clothes featured, which includes Roberto Cavalli, Bonpoint, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermes and more.
