Just before the All-Lara Stone Feb issue of Vogue Paris went on the stands, the internet was hit with a burst of imagery allegedly from the Steven Klein edit titled "Lara Fiction Noire". Yet when the magazine finally emerged several of those powerful images were not in the proper editorial. A casual trace revealed those out-takes had come from the stevenkleinstudio.com website, in a flash series titled "Uncensored". Whatever the vagaries behind what was published and what was not published lay a fascinating story of passion on the part of the photographer and a testament to the burgeoning power of the internet as a vital (and viral) distribution center of insider imagery. Already this editorial has rippled across the fashion groupie radar as one of the most controversial series of imagery thus far this year.

SCOOP DU JOUR: A MODEL DRIVEN SEPTEMBER PARIS VOGUE

TI loves a good source and this Hiss Squadder is transmitting from the inner sanctum. TI won't be the one to blow Vogue Paris' genius September cover but we're happy to kick off the speculation.
