"Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion and surprise" Valentino

Spring is here. Well, not climatologically (it's still pretty cold in Paris) but in a fashion kind of way.

The February issue of Paris Vogue is out and it's so colorful and totally SS 2011- oriented.

Starting by the cover, featuring Lara Stone in Gucci photographed by Mario Sorrenti.

This is also the latest issue with Carine Roitfeld as Editor in Chief, if we want to be nostalgic.

But we won't, so we concentrate instead on all the amazing pictures taken by Mario.

This is Freja Beha in a Viktor&Rolf look, styled by Jane How.
It's a concentrate of all the freshness and joy of a summer day. And the idea of that gigantic pearl necklace? Genial.

There she comes Joan Small in Fendi (styled by Jane How again).
The shooting went on in Southern Italy and this picture recalls the religious elements so present in Mario Soerrenti's work. She doesn't look a bit like the Chris, with that starfish crown and that pose?

Obviously, summer ads come along as well.
Loved the Hitchcockian atmosphere in the Bottega Veneta ad, our French national glory Laetitia Casta for Cavalli, Arizona Muse for YSL and the always gorgeous Daria Werbowy playing the skateboard kid for CĂ©line.

A lots of ink was dedicated to the ballet word, in honor to Black Swan (don't forget that Rodarte's sister are behind those tutus). So, while waiting for an online lesson with Natalie Portman's trainer and ex-dancer Mary Helen Bowers on http://www.balletbeautiful.com/
here's the movie trailer for those who haven't seen it yet (is this possible?!)
