Laetitia Casta










































By Mario Testino (Vogue Paris May 2012) - Emmanuelle Alt









































By Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott (Vogue Paris December/January 2010) - Carine Roitfeld

Same super model, under very different creative direction.
You can't deny that both covers have something going on, and I think my own personal style makes me more attracted to the May/Emmanuelle cover, which is so easy and beautiful. But then I see the DecJan/Carine cover and I feel like I take my time with it, and at the end I do admire it more.

Which cover do you prefer? And while we're on that topic, thoughts on Emmanuelle VS. Carine?
Likes, dislikes, everything on your mind... I want to read it! xx

  2. I possibly prefer Emmanuelle's version, not only for the picture but also because i find Laeticia such a natural beautiful person... much sophistication don't suit her.

    Have a wonderful day dear,

  7. Since one cover is for May and one for December/January it's hard to compare. These two SHOULD have a different (creative) direction. It's not just a different editor in chief. I think you have said it yourself perfectly. I love the risk in Carine's cover, but in the end Emanuelle's cover is more approachable I guess.

  11. I love this first cover, the other one has quite a different idea, it's nice too, but the first one is more beautiful.

    Have a great weekend,

  12. I prefer Emmanuelle - I think the other is intriguing and beautiful in it's own way, I can't help but be drawn more towards the first.

  13. i love the may cover a tiny bit more.
    but i am a HUGE carine fan because she´s fearless and takes more risks. I LOVE THAT.

  21. Laetitia is sooo beautiful, she looks amazing on both covers, although I prefer the first one (even though I think it's a little too "safe").
    Mmm... I'm not sure about the Carine vs Emmanuelle issue, they're very different. I like what Emmanuelle is doing now, although maybe everything is a little bit "too her style" (hope you get what I mean).

  22. While they're both nice, I like the first cover better. She seems more soft and angelic as opposed to the second image.

  24. Wow, the only one that it's getting older is me!
    Laetita looks absolutely stunning in both covers, but, like you I think the first one is more my cup of tea...

  25. I personally like how the model looks in #1 but I know in #2 she really is showing off the fashion more than herself!

  27. Both covers are impressive, but I think I prefer the white visual esthetic of Emmanuelle.
