The March issue of Vogue Italia is a triumph! Starting right off the bat with a stunning cover shot by Steven Meisel of Rianne von Rompaey. This cover is a perfect example of why I have pledged my eternal undying love to Vogue Italia as my favourite Vogue publication and Meisel as my favourite cover artist. They are my most beloved marriage (after Bey & Jay of course) and I hope the separation they were going through is over, because this is what my heart desires – ethereal beauty!

And that’s just the beginning my loves, because inside, oh inside! The cover story is a unique selection of ingénue portraits, just what Meisel does best! Photographers featured in this issue are among the most talented of our time and each of their editorials seem to celebrate their own unique style and remind us just why we love them. I’m going to specifically show you a few stories, but there are also spreads by Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Michel Comte, Miles Aldridge, and Sarah Moon, as well as a third by Paolo Roversi and a second by Ellen von Unwerth & Sølve Sundsbø. Truly we are blessed! Now go buy the issue because there is no sweeter feeling than stroking the glossy pages of a truly magnificent fashion magazine!

David Bellemere delivers some Famed Fashion Photographer Gilles Bensimon inspired realness to these editorials for the US Elle. They’re lucky to have such a talent working with them. Bellemere shoots Aline Weber for the October issue in a perfect series of shots as a lead-in from Autumn to Winter, as well as Cora Emmanuel in a similar shoot for the November issue. Melodie Monrose is featured in the November issue as well in a story that looks like one I would have clipped from an 80s issue of Elle. Excellent work from both photographer and models!

King of Whimsy Tim Walker provides the perfect holiday gift by slaying all in FOUR editorials for the December issue of Vogue Italia. It’s a Fashion Christmas Miracle! Kate Moss stars in a sumptuous surreal shoot where she wears lace in nearly every shot. I love Kate in lace! Karen Elson puts her Elson-spin on the classic Tim Walker portrait in a very retro inspired sitting. Anna Cleveland, Christina Carey, Erin O’Connor & Jamie Bochert serve some Sarah Moon inspired perfect in an exquisite story that actually made me cry. Anna Cleveland and Jamie Bochert are two of my favourite models, seeing them together was just too much for my odd-beauty loving heart to handle. Finally Edie Campbell is featured in a spooky harlequin shoot. All the facets of Tim’s unique style shine in every separate shoot and every single photo. I’m so happy! This is an issue I would strongly encourage purchasing in paper format. Petting the pages will be perfect art therapy.

It’s Leo’s birthday! Let’s all make him papier-mâché Oscar statues! But first! Let’s look at pictures of Kate! Which is my favourite thing to do while I’m thinking about Leo.

First, allow me to FREAK OUT over these gender flip photos of Kate for the November issue of L’Uomo Vogue. GAAAAAHD! That cropped shot of her in the trousers is enough to make me want to weep into my pillow all day, but also her faaace! The cheekbones! The pomp! The bad-ass expression! My heart is full of Kate. On to the next one! Kate stars in another shoot by Peter Lindbergh for the Vogue Italia and, while equally as stunning in its stark black-and-white beauty, it doesn’t carry the same draw as the L’Uomo Vogue shoot. Also, Peter Lindbergh’s behind-the-scenes style drives me insane. I get that it’s supposed to look like this romantic voyeur shot when the subject is far off and you can see a foggy blur around the lens, but I think it looks like he accidentally stuck his thumb over part of the lens. I’ve also never cared for his shots of models posing next to all his equipment. No one cares! It’s weird and distracting! The strange thing too is that Lindbergh is actually very talented at framing a shot, he just loves the candid shots and it doesn’t work with his style at all. Kate also stars in a lovely little beauty editorial by Frederic Auerbach for Gotham. Truly we are blessed with bountiful Kateness. Also Leo! HAPPY BIRTHDAY FUTURE OSCAR WINNER! Maybe Kate will let him hold hers today and practice his speech! She’s a really good BFF.

How am I supposed to talk about these pictures when ALL I CAN DO IS WEEP? Look at how he looks at her! Look at how she looks at him looking at her! You know what would be fun? If I wasn’t 37 and didn’t have to go buy lentils and a bag of potatoes and figure out why my phone won’t hold a charge and could just spend the day looking up song lyrics that I think accurately describe Brad and Angie (BFFS 4EVA). They’re so in love. They’re so compatible. They’re so complementary. They’re so ridiculously attractive. Just a few more days until By the Sea is released, my loves! It’s not getting great early reviews. I CARE NOT! No derp it’s a vanity project that’s about super rich beautiful people struggling in various destination locations. It’s going to look gorgeous, and don’t we all deserve to look at something gorgeous? Don’t we all need a break from lentil shopping to watch two sets of perfect pillow lips speak beautiful words and the rest of the bodies attached to the perfect pillow lips cry and fuck and wear big sunglasses and smoke and throw things? YES WE DO! So look at these pictures, go see the movie, think about the Smith-Jolie-Pitts while you listen to love songs. Make a compilation album! Press it to vinyl! Hire a music legend (KENNY ROGERS????) and a TV personality (A FORMER HOST OF THE SOUP????) to stand together and speak rapturously about the songs and explain why they’re important to the Brad/Angie love story. Hire day-player actors to clink wine glasses in front of a crackling fire with a TV mounted above the fireplace playing Jolie-Pitt movies on a loop while each song title scrolls past them while they make fuck faces at each other. I have to go! I need to pitch something to Time Life! And buy lentils!
