L.A has it’s own particular breed of glamour. Or several, really, if you count the subcultural differences, all of which are explored in Vogue Paris’ latest epic endeavour. There’s the suburban L.A housewife persona that Arizona Muse slips into as easily as if it were a silk neglige. Or Natasha Poly’s 70s folk-rock character who’s fond of suede fringing and the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar. Or Freja Beha Erichsen’s band world of Fender Stratocasters and rock star fur coats, or Lara Stone’s rather dominatrix-like girl who hangs out, with odd contradiction, with the surfer boys and fitness freaks.
We did use the word ‘epic’, didn’t we? With 64 looks in total, Vogue Paris’ subcultural tour of L.A is some feat. But thematically there’s little to gel it all together. There are some great shots, some even better styling ideas, but you do have to do a little trawling to find them.
The shoot, which was lensed by Inez and Vinoodh, rounds out its all-star cast with Isabeli Fontana and Raquel Zimmerman.
