In light of the recent news of Carine Roitfeld's resignation from Editor in Chief post at French Vogue, I thought I would post my favorite cover from her time at the magazine (2000-2010). It features Natalia Vodianova playing the part of the expectant bride, from April 2006. Along with her creative director Fabian Baron, Carine raised the bar for the Vogue enterprise, artistically and stylistically. This type treatment, an elegant serif expressed through italics and all caps has been widely imitated, but this is where it started. It's a perfect example of elegant type placement paired with a stunning cover image.
