We Got Punked By A Fake Vanity Fair France Cover, Here’s The Real Debut
Yeah, we know. Surely Kanye’s new motherland nor one of favorite magazines would dare recycle a cover for their debut issue, and sure enough, Vanity Fair France’s very first cover star is not La Scandaleuse Kristen Stewart.
The glossy hit shelves in France today, and features Scarlett Johansson striking a very Cruel Intentions pose between the doors of a rather jazzy home. The cover reads ‘Une Américaine à Paris’, referring to Johansson’s recent decision to split her time between Paris and the U.S. An accompanying quote reads, “Je vis au-dessus d’un café où on joue de l’accordéon”, which either means something about a café and an accordion or “At least they didn’t zoom in on my breasts”. Our French is a little rusty.
We’ve warmed up to Scarlett considerably now that she’s no longer dating our future husband Ryan Reynolds, but couldn’t Vanity Fair have taken the patriotic route for their inaugural cover? We were secretly hoping for Vanessa Paradis or Marion Cotillard.
WWD reports that the magazine opens with three sections — Fanfare for culture, Fumoir for debates and Vanity Case for fashion and lifestyle — and contains at least seven features per issue. We’ll be brushing up on our français for Scarlett’s one — she’s been interviewed by Vanity Fair‘s contributing editor Ingrid Sischy, AKA lander of the first John Galliano interview since you-know-what.
