Joyeux anniversaire Vogue Paris. And congrats on the most breathtaking cover.

This could quite possibly be the sexiest magazine cover I have seen.

The October 2010 issue of Vogue Paris marks the magazine’s 90th anniversary.

The issue is a whopping 622 pages, with 276 pages of those pages advertisements and 104 pages congratulatory notes from international designers.

I had to do a double (ahem) take at the cover. Surely set to become the most famous gap-toothed model since Lauren Hutton, Lara Stone (also known as the brand new wife of David Walliams - the tall, skinny straight one from Little Britain) gets her girls out and dons not much except a neck cameo, lacy black gloves, and sultry 'masque'. Divine.

The issue features 150 pages of photoshoots by the pinnacle of photogs: Mario Sorrenti, David Sims, Terry Richardson, Steven Klein, Hedi Slimane and duos Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Editor Carine Roitfeld has blended photos and features from both the present and past, and a collection of oversized photographs taken from nine decades worth of issues will also accompany the issue as a gift to readers. The global print run is said to have increased by 40 per cent to 280,000 copies, in anticipation of strong demand. Ah, to score an issue would be heaven.
