Model Tori Garrn graces the cover of Vogue Germany in December wearing a pink Alexander McQueen dress from the autumn collection (you can spot it in my yesterday's post). I was drawn to this editorial in the issue called 'So fern, so nah' (in English: 'So far, so close'), which features Asian labels mixed with Western, and is a beautiful combination of colour and black & white photography by Alexi Lubomirski. The stylist was the magazine's editor in chief, Christiane Arp, and the make-up artist, Tyron Machhausen, deserves to be mentioned. The photos you see in this post are only part of the editorial. (For more see link under photo credit.)
As I just bought the issue, I cannot really tell you much about it. I usually find the cultural section of Vogue Germany interesting and there I spot a short article about Anna Karenina starring Keira Knightly, a film I would like to see. There is an article about Laos in the travel section so the December issue obviously has a little Eastern vibe going on, blended with the Christmas spirit.

• Grace Coddington's autobiography has finally been published! It'll be my Christmas reading
• The other day I was in a magazine shop leafing through the latest issues. Kate Moss is on the cover of Vanity Fair and you can read the interview with her on their website
• Speaking of Kate Moss, I love her look on the latest cover of Vogue Spain, photographed by Mario Testino
