The coming winter 2012 fashion season is dominated by two women’s looks: masculinity and the new noir (or the new gothic, if you will). While it was the former that dominated the catwalks, it’s the appeal of the latter that dominates old media and the pictorials they create.

Vogue Paris picks up on the vibe as they give their publication a makeover and make noir the focus of their 3 September issue covers, featuring sheer clad models Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone. You can find out more about the makeover and see Lara Stone’s cover after the break.

As WWD are today reporting about the changes to Vogue Paris;

French Vogue is getting a makeover with the September issue, which hits newsstands Aug. 23.

The magazine features a cleaner, airier design, with remodeled typography and the use of a craft-paper-like brown background — both of which hark back to its look in the Sixties and Seventies.

The new layout is the brainchild of 34-year-old Germain Chauveau, who earlier this year succeeded Johan Svensson as artistic director of the magazine. Only minor changes had been made since the previous layout, executed by Fabien Baron for the magazine’s December 2003-January 2004 double issue. Prior to that, the magazine was art directed by design duo M/M (Paris).
