Guardi ed Impari: Watch & Learn From Italian Vogue

I picked up the July issue of Italian Vogue while I was in Rome and was completely blown away by the Fall fashion layout featuring Linda Evangelista. Aren't these photos just exquisite? They remind me of the good ol' days when fashion magazines used actual models, not the celebrity du jour to make an editorial statement.

I am loving the retro ladylike vibe, especially the 1940s-style hair net headpieces...their name escapes me at the moment...and who doesn't love a cheeky hat and a cute pup or two?

I love the vintage feel of these images and the layers of richness--I mean the whole setting is just a riot of saturated hues and textures that looks decadent and perfect for the styling. So nice!

Oh man, I wish Italian Vogue wasn't so expensive at borders. Otherwise I would buy every issue. It's so much more inspiring than American Vogue. Thanks for posting these amazing photos!

She's baaack!! and putting all the current models to shame.
so grace kelly in the last photo, and that was part of linda's magic, she could look like anyone.
