French Vogue’s October Issue Will Be Gigantic

Screw September! The October issue of French Vogue, never one to do what the other guys were doing for the sake of fitting in, will total 622 pages. Carine Roitfeld favorite Lara Stone will appear on the cover of this issue, which marks the magazine’s 75th anniversary and hits newsstands September 10. The issue brick includes:

• 276 pages of ads, which is 110 pages more than last year’s October issue.
• 104 pages of congratulations from all kinds of designers, because fashion loves a back scratch.
• 150 pages of features, shot by photographers like Mario Sorrenti, David Sims, Terry Richardson, Steven Klein, Hedi Slimane, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
• Inès de la Fressange’s 11-year-old daughter modeling the little black dress (shot by Slimane). Because what else would Inès’s daughter do at 11? Swing over a pit of gravel?

And people who are in France can buy the issue bundled with a “portfolio of oversize photographs from the nine decades, all unbound on thick paper and ready to frame,” according to WWD. French people get the best of everything. You know you want this on your wall.
