The pretty baby Brooke Shields.
Belle epoque Gloria Vanderbilt, the original poor little rich girl.

Is Vogue Paris out yet? Carine Roitfeld's work can still work me up into a lather, as is the case with this story enigmatically entitled "Gloria": I can see that it's referencing Gloria Vanderbilt, while also channeling Brooke Shields inLouis Malle's Pretty Baby. Isn't this inspiring and grand? Isn't this what makes fashion glamourous and exciting? Fresh and original? Photos are by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, model, Lara Stone.
