I've been in such a state of anguish over the lack of sensuality in Vogue Paris, post Carine Roitfeld.
Suddenly, it doesn't matter if Vogue Paris goes bourgois on us, because Vogue Spain is on sensual steroids. Brazil, too, is flexing muscle. Actually, many Vogues are feeling the heat. Alt is bringing up the rear, making Vogue Paris more like Vogue US.
We're putting together the sensuality players, but two names stand out: photographer Alexi Lubomirski and male model Andres Velencoso Segura. They work together a lot, creating strong, sizzling women editorials -- yes, often with more than one man. Love it!
This is the closest we've gotten to real supermodel, fashion empowerment drama in years. Versace must be smiling in heaven. Here's a few editorials I adore. Anne
