Well that's two in a row for Carine Roitfeld both in the sense of her dual management of Vogue Paris and Vogues Hommes International and the fact that the second VHI under her watch has turned out to be a sizzler. Today's challenge is to be succinct so here's TI's bullet points as to why both Vogue Paris and VHI are run-to-the-newstand brilliant.

VP
1. Kate Moss as a chic biker chick by Inez and Vinoodh . Truth in advertising
2. Sasha wearing that disco ball top by Hedi. Don't you want one too?
3. Guinivere's scary/beautiful hair and make-up in her Mikael Jansson edit. What a stunning departure for Jansson.
4. Angela Lindvall's edit by Katja Rahlwes. Rahlwes rising!
5.The return of Luca by Ben Hassett

Political note. Virtually every mod in the issue is an IMG girl. Conspiracy theorists whip that into a frenzy.

3.Mr Ward by Mr Pierson.
4.The Virgins looking glossed for Terry Richardson
5.And that Daria layout. Gott damn.

There's been a longstanding rumor for a while that Daria W got thisclose to clinching a deal with VS before Lancome came in to lock her up with beaucoup bucks. I&V's snaps made believers of TI.
