The October cover of Vogue (US) displays actress Kiera Knightley in Chanel Couture (Fall 2012), as she prepares to promote her upcoming dramatic role as Anna Karenina which is set to premiere in theaters November 16th. Captured by Marino Testino, Kiera wears couture designs from Chanel, Dior and Valentino as well as designs from the film by Jacqueline Durran and Joe Wright. Read Knightley’s interview with Amanda Foreman here. (Have a look at the editorial below)
This month, as similar to last, I have waited a week to post the most recent cover of Vogue, as I wanted to have time to pour through the issue and share with you my favorite articles. While I know many of you have possibly already enjoyed the issue, many of you have not, and often are simply wanting a reason to pick it up – a savvy decision that I applaud, alas, do not heed. The good news is, however, that already on newsstands, this issue contains a handful of articles that I highly recommend. Have a look:
~”The Voice” (p.194) profiles congresswoman (democrat from Florida) Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the real-life version of I Don’t Know How She Does It. A survivor of breast cancer, mother, wife and DNC chair, the 46-year-old superwoman is inspiring in her resolute determination and passion for doing a job well for her constituents and her country.
~”Life of the Party” (p.220) At the young age of 25, Audrey Gelman is a fashionista with politics and social involvement at the forefront of her mind. The article offers a glimpse into her daily schedule and a hint at what she may be up to next.
~”Channel Crossing” (p.254) Okay, I am like a moth to a flame when Paris is mentioned, and in this particular article, it was worth the distraction. Chloe’s Clare Waight Keller makes the move from London to Paris, and she shares three lessons on how to make the transition all the more pleasurable. As if it wasn’t ideal already.
~”Personal Touch” (p.295) A new show now on PBS from the BBC, “Call the Midwife”, starring Jessica Raine has piqued my curiosity based on this profile piece. With an enormous audience in the UK (11.4 million views), I’m interested in knowing what all the fuss is about.
