To me, French Vogue is the epitome of a chic when it comes to design. As I was digging through my collection of magazines recently, I found this gem from a few years back dedicated to the history of rock and roll. And really, who can ignore Kate Moss posing as Ziggy Stardust?!

French Vogue has a knack for art direction and the care they put into each feature shows. I wish more American magazines would take a cue from their beautiful yet restrained type treatments and attention to detail. This is definitely an issue I’ll be holding onto forever.
