Thankfully, my sensuality drama is over. For months I’ve written about the future impact of Brazil, Spain and the South American countries on expressions of sensuality. The Scandinavian countries are far more influential as well, moving us forward in trying to break down the schism between female sexuality and respectability.
Italy isn’t undergoing any sensual reformation that I detect. “Let go of it, Anne”, I told myself yesterday. C’est tout. Elsa Hosk, lensed by Yu Tsai for Marie Claire Spain’s May 2011 issue reminds me that sensuality is alive and well for nice girls, even if Vogue Paris is suffering a moment of ambivalence.
The differences between Vogue Paris under Emmanuelle Alt and Carine Roitfeld are distinctly obvious in this new editorial of Anna Selezneva, lensed by Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer for the Vogue Paris May 2011 issue.
