Best of 2015 – Vogue Editorials

In what is now a tradition, I want to showcase my favourite editorials of the year from the big four Vogues: UK, USA, France & Italy. Some smaller editions also produce fantastic content (I really like Vogue Australia at the moment, for example) but I just focus on the traditionally most important in this specific post. I found it really interesting when working on this post that you can see how different the magazines are stylistically. Vogue Paris, under Emmanuelle Alt, is cool in a party-girl way; Vogue Italia is the most out-there, usually; British Vogue is often quite boring in its model choice but often showcases nice clothes; American Vogue is the original and therefore should be the best, but I find that it also overuses the same models (a lot of Kendall and Gigi this year). I do love Grace Coddington and Tonne Goodman’s work though. The same as last year, I’ll feature my favourite photos from the editorial and leave you a link to the rest. See below:

Best of 2014 – Vogue Editorials

As per last year’s post, of around the same time of year, I have decided to round up what I consider to be the best editorials of the year. In this post, I will deal specifically with the four big Vogue magazines: British, American, Italian & French. Although, historically, these magazines are considered the best of the Vogues, I’m not 100% sure that that is still the case. Vogue Nippon (Japan) and Vogue Russia are, in my opinion, shining as bright stars in terms of editorials (I have no idea about actual content, I can’t read either language). However, like last year, I’m going to use this post for the Big Four and a separate one for the other, smaller Vogue magazines along with the myriad other fashion publications, from the biggest to the most indie. Now I realise that this post will be very photo-heavy so apologies in advance if that is not your preference. To strike, what is hopefully, a balance, I will only post my favourite shots from each editorial and link the rest for you all to look at elsewhere. Let us commence!

As I have said before, there are many brilliant editorials in fashion publications that are not the Big Four Vogues. For that reason, another post choosing my favourites from the other magazines will be coming up shortly. Let me know what you think of my picks, are there any of your favourites that I missed?
