The Day we pretended to be Editors-in-Chief at British Vogue

British Vogue November Issue

Working at Vogue always was (and still is) my dream. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with magazines and with Vogue in particular.

So it was just crazy when the other day, at the Conde Nast College, they offered us the opportunity to prepare our own magazine. That was our one chance to analyse in depth our favourite magazine, which is not at all the same as enjoying it as a reader!

We analysed the layout, the style, the tone, the targeted audience, the advertisers, the choice of articles they make. Absolutely everything. And we started to work as an editorial team to draft and prepare our own articles and issue cover and eventually pulled everything together to propose what we thought could be a great November issue for them.

Have a look and tell me what you think! Do you think it looks close enough to British Vogue? Would you buy it? ;)

David Gandy goes back to school.. my school!!!

conde nast college

A little wave of hysteria seized the Conde Nast College yesterday as male supermodel David Gandy (to his own confession, usually referred to as the “white pant guy” from the Dolce Gabbana Light Blue ad) came to give a talk at our school.

Interviewed by fashion priestess Hilary Alexander, David shared his insight on the fashion industry, male modelling and beyond, before taking the time to take a picture with every single one of us.

When asked if he had any tip to help me look better on these tricky bikinis pictures this summer, he (unfortunately) answered: “one thing only: go to the gym”.

We all loved his honesty, down to earth attitude that night.. a true gentleman!

Here are a few snaps of the event and its well-heeled guests.
