Paris Vogue's Faux Pas

Paris Vogue assembles three of modelling's most iconic faces, Lauren Hutton, Stephanie Seymour and Daria Werbowry for its November 2012 cover. Modelling legends Hutton, Seymour and Werbowry are captured by photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for the style bible's "Beauty from 20 to 60 years - the Power of Age" issue. Paris Vogue deserves kudos for its divine model selection with the always delightful Hutton, the resurgent Seymour who has scored a cover trifecta with recent appearances for Vogue Homme International and i-D, and perennial favourite Werbowry featuring, however Editor-in-Chief Emmanuelle Alt has come under fire for the questionable choice of attire for the magazine's cover subjects. As beautiful as Hutton, Seymour and Werbowry are, the legendary trio come across as a group of soccer moms, thanks to the pairing of matching Gap style shirts and unfashionable high-waisted jeans for all three models. With beauty and timeless elegance being hailed, according to the Paris Vogue's website, as the key focus for the issue, Alt may have missed the mark altogether.
