Vogue Paris Celebrates 90 Years with Fantastic Photo Spreads (10 photos)

To mark its 90th anniversary, French Vogue is pulling out all the stops, starting with this incredibly sexy cover of model Lara Stone. At 622 pages, the October issue is an instant collectible because it not only features beautiful and artistic shoots like this one from Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott but also new ones from a whole list of famous fashion photographers – Mario Sorrenti, David Sims, Terry Richardson, Steven Klein, Hedi Slimane and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld wanted to mix the past and the present in an issue that promises to be larger than life. "Vogue Paris has always played the card of audacity," Roitfeld said. "We couldn't do a lukewarm issue." If this Mert & Marcus spread is any indication, Halloween is coming early this year as we’re in for some amazingly delicious treats.

Cool fact? As a gift to readers in France, the issue came polybagged with a portfolio of oversize photographs from the nine decades, all unbound on thick paper and ready to frame. It hit newsstands around September 20th. Make sure to pick one up. Vogue Paris Source: WWD photos via Fashion Gone Rogue
