Ooh La La



For their 2009 Calender, French Vogue worked with the ever provocative Terry Richardson. The inspiration behind the shoot was that of the modern day pin up. The shots are in all reality a slight bit more tame than other work by Richardson. However that is understandable given the wide and varied audience of the magazine.

What are your thoughts on the calendar? Too much or not enough?

  1. I love French Vogue, I adore Terry, but I just don't really like these pictures. There are about 3 or 4 I like but the rest not so much.

  2. hey honey. I love Richardson and French Vogue.I dont mind these shots but I think that perhaps that they could perhaps have been more creative fashion wise with them.These are great but look like they could have been in any pin up mag or feature.nOw the feel of the kitten one is brilliant and perhaps the rest should have been in same line,feel as that one.

  6. I don't know why but this reminds me of a calender that I found at my great uncles house. It was from maybe the 50's. It had plastic on each month..where the girls are in clothes..but remove the plastic flap and they had nothing on. I was so..wow, I can't believe that old guy had this. It freaked me a little..but I thought there was an art to it to with the poses.

  23. I'm really liking the new pin-up girls. I'm actually gonna try to make a banner out of one of them for the site.

    I also like your site's new look. Can't go wrong with technicolour.

  24. I am not a fan of Terry, he sort of creeps me out since he's such a perv =/ but I think these are okay, if it wasn't pin up I would be more irked but I think he incorporated the pin-up idea pretty well. I just wish the models weren't so skinny, pin up girls need curves, yo!

  25. terry and sexual subject. i actaully like it. maybe not all, but liu and georgina yes... and of course my favourite eniko. great calendar for hopefully great year. could you imagine how would vogue uks calendar look like? i dont even wanna know, i would probably fall a sleep on the first month cause it would probably be boring with always the same pack of models. lakshemi and selezneva are really loved in vogue paris.

  26. hmm, the teddy bear is such a classic! I love them, and love the modern take on the poses!

  33. Dapper, love these they look like Ellen Von Unwerth so I was surprised to see they were Terry Richardson. Good spotting. Carla

  34. They did that last year too, right? I think that one is far better.

  35. Cute concept but I agree that the ladies featured are not pin-up types at all. Pin-ups are supposed to be saucy and curvy! These models are too bland, generic and well flat haha.

    Btw thanks for the comment on my blog :)
