Vogue Paris Will Soon Be Printed In English

Rachel Krause / April 10, 2012

Fellow Franco-fashion-philes, rejoice: the days of throwing down a 10-spot for a gloriously glossy, sumptuously Gallic Vogue Paris and reveling in the sad irony of only being able to enjoy the pictures are over. I can’t say that there’s been many details out regarding the news since the announcement on Friday, but it did come straight from the mouths (keyboards, rather) of the Vogue.fr staff via the mag’s Twitter account. Clearly they’re aware of the magnitude of the situation, considering this is the statement they released:

France gave the US the Statue of Liberty, now we are taking Vogue.fr to the wider world… get ready for #VogueParisinEnglish

As an ugly American who doesn’t speak French very well, but is what you might call (tongue firmly in cheek, natch) fluent in taking long drags off of cigarettes in holders (cancer-meets-class!) while listening to Serge Gainsbourg, donning high heels and greasy hair and, yes, skimming an ancient issue of Vogue Paris, I couldn’t be more excitée. Merci, Emmanuelle! [NY Mag]
