September Inspires Nose-rings in Vogue.

Vogue September 2013 Nose Ring Cover

Daria Werbowy popped through the door the other day and has been sitting on my desk for the past few days awaiting my attention.  She caught it today when I clocked the subtle Nose-ring.  Something about September Issues must inspire Vogue Editors to favour facial jewellery – Remembering the controversial Italian Vogue front cover – Which One? – September 2011 when Stella Tennant was shot by Steven Meisel in a Ethal Granger inspired look with a tight laced waist.

Ethal Granger was a completely bonkers “tight lacer” – (A term I learnt from the Harriets Muse guys when they were doing their corset thing in Soho a few years ago) A girl who deliberately tight laces her corset to achieve a smaller waist.  The Meisel shoot itself is incredibly inspiring.  The constrained, reserved recklessness of the styling is fascinating.  To see Tennent’s body pulled, pierced and manipulated pulls my breath away.

I can’t remember British Vogue having facial jewellery before but is a great example of how each of the countries Vogues come at fashion and their readers from entirely different directions.
