If you feel as though you need a Fashion 101 crash course, pick up the August issue of Vogue Paris along with a French dictionary. The magazine devotes 65 pages -- produced with the help of two photographers, three stylists, a handful of models, and a bevy of hairstylists and makeup artists -- to "ADN de la Mode" ("Fashion DNA"), an explanation of what the big-time fashion designers are known for, from Paul Smith's British-with-a-twist style to Calvin Klein's easy attitude.
And, not only does this story give the lay of the fashion land, but it also brings to light why Daria Werbowy is on the mag's cover decked out in head-to-toe Burberry. The cover photo comes from the same photo shoot.
