    The last necklace!!!  Although I could never, ever pull it off, I want it!!  So cool!!

  • PinkLemon

    that second pic is just so cool.

  • crash1212

    Absolutely fabulous. I want those pointy sunglasses – BAD.

  • Kathy Schrenk

    I guess fashion designers have been watching a lot of Portlandia reruns. This is the second “put a bird on it” feature in a week.

    • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.in/ Cassie

      LOL. I love Portlandia!

    • ballerinawithagun

      Portlandia is DIY and crafty, never this elegant.

    This is insane!  Now I have to get a subscription to Vogue Korea … oh look, they have a website, I’ll just click haphazardly till I see pretty pictures.

    I wish I could see the jewelry up close and personal. 

  • SpcilK

    Dramatic! Love the last photo and the necklace she is wearing.

    How whimsically fun.  I especially love #4.

    Vogue Korea, you routinely put every other fashion magazine to shame. Huge Standing Ovation!

    • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

      I agree. You think it’s all been done before and along comes Vogue Korea. Always breathtaking.

    • makeityourself

      Yes, and what is that all about?   It’s kind of embarrassing that Vogue Korea is becoming the flagship of the Vogue empire, with the 20+ magazines they have in their stable.  (And now it’s time for my Anna Wintour rant.)  So why does Conde Nast hang on to Anna Wintour, who hasn’t produced a fashion editorial of this caliber in American Vogue in the last, well, ever . . .?   I just plowed my way through the September issue and even with 900 pages, or whatever it was, I was disappointed.  The most adventurous shoot in it featured Stella Tennant with glossy hair of various colors, but it wasn’t captivating or enchanting or enthralling, as these photos from Vogue Korea are.  I think it’s time for a subscription to Vogue Korea.  Kudos to the editorial and creative staffs.  (End of rant.)

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

         Because they are afraid that edgy, innovative and cool will not sell magazines.  IDIOTS.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I agree! The September issue of Bazaar was much more exciting.

      • AthenaJ

        Because they’re more concerned with featuring celebrities (thanks Anna) and ‘look how the rich people live’ articles rather than showcasing cutting edge fashion. Wish I could find Vogue Korea at my local B&N.

    • Celandine1

      Vogue Korea = WERQ

  • everest19

    Desperately Seeking: A subscription to this magazine. Perfection.

  • PastryGoddess

    YES! and YES!

    Thank you TLo for making our Wednesday more pretty

    I never know what the hell Vogue Korea is trying to sell, or how it might look on me, but I kinda don’t care.  Bring on the pretty.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

      I appreciate that it appears all they are trying to sell is magazines. Which is as it should be. 

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

    I saw Vogue Russia in the Duane Reade today, and was disappointed I couldn’t find Vogue Korea, UK, or Paris. :(

  • marilyn

    Wow.  Women with hairdos that look like bird nests/crap from the vacuum bag.  It is so bizzare that no one notices the clothes.  But, I assume that is the idea.

    • julnyes

      Well I think they are selling jewelry, not clothes in this editorial.

  • kimmeister

    The spider on the bridge of the sunglasses in the 2nd pic scares the crap out of me!

  • SewingSiren

    Vogue Korea is rapidly becoming my favorite feature on the site.

  • http://profiles.google.com/phyllis.craine Phyllis Craine

    I just googled “subscribe to Vogue Korea”

    • Funkykatt

      I looked it up too….EXPENSIVE!  Think I will stick with T&L

      • AuntieAnonny

         Honestly, I think it’s worth it, if you have the money. This isn’t a magazine you’re going to throw out, it’s more like a “rare” book if you think about it.

        • Funkykatt

          Definitely if one has the money and don’t forget to will it to the right person. What a gem this magazine is!

  • MoHub


  • PeaceBang

    Oh my GODS, yes. The second-to-last shot with the calendulas in the hair, the two-tone nails and the cool neckerchief thing – love it. 

  • guest2visits

    I really love all these except the last.  The black feathered jacket/dress at the top is stunning.

  • ccm800

    VK has the creative juice on tap!

    vogue korea, where awesome lives.

    • Lilak

      Sister Vogues are so tired anymore …
      What fun to be able to look forward to each issue of VK with the anticipation of, well, Christmas!  

  • Anathema_Device

    So elegant, if that is the right word. Really beautiful shots.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Elegant is the correct word. Someone above mentioned Portlandia, which is never elegant, put a bird on it is DIY and crafty. 

      • Anathema_Device

        It really is a fine line. This editorial takes so many elements that could go horribly wrong so quickly and makes them into beautiful art.

  • butterflysunita

    Oh.  I am speechless.  

  • MilaXX

    Oh Vogue Korea, how I love you. I would cut someone for the sunglasses in the second picture.

  • TieDye64

    So freaking fabulous! 

  • Lisa

    I know this is going to sound corny, but I’m just completely charmed.  It’s the first word that comes to mind. I just love the whole spread!

  • Sarah Thomas

    Why, why why is Vogue Korea so much cooler than all of our magazines? 

    Possibly because no one there has ever heard of Terry Richardson?

  • quiltrx

    So, so cool.

  • gabbilevy

    Oh, to be a fly on the wall at a Vogue Korea planning meeting. (Translation issues aside, I do not, in fact, speak Korean.

  • DesertDweller79

    Once again putting American Vogue to shame.  It is like clockwork now.

    I love the 2nd photo.  Those sunglasses are ridiculously awesome.  Ditto the necklace in the last photo.

  • Judy_J

    Vogue Korea needs to come to America and show them how it’s done.

  • ballerinawithagun

    I love the appliqued lips the model is holding as a mask! I assume it is a belt. Any info on that piece?

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Very cool!  Reminds me of Sofia Coppola’s production of “Marie Antoinette”.

    I’m traveling to Korea for the first time in October, and if all the ladies there don’t look like this, I’m going to be extremely disappointed!

    This isn’t even fair…
