French-Malian pop singer Aya Nakamura takes the cover of Vogue France‘s November 2021 edition lensed by fashion photographer Carlijn Jacobs. In charge of styling was Gabriella Karefa Johnson, with beauty from hair stylist Virginie Pinto Moreira, makeup artist Ammy Drammeh, and manicurist Cam Tran. Set design is work of Ibby Njoya, with production from Kitten Production. Aya is wearing look from the latest Balenciaga Haute Couture collection. Editor in chief Eugenie Trochu celebrates individuality, and the power of diversity and inclusivity, with the first issue of Vogue France (formerly known as Vogue Paris).
Creativity, culture, art and fashion are everywhere. They are the greatest vectors of inclusiveness and diversity. From Paris to Marseille, from Lille to Strasbourg, our identity is not born from a single place and Vogue represents the best of emerging talents and voices. We’ll build on a hundred years of defining cultural history, but meet the moment we’re in now and most importantly, reflect the France we live in today. – Eugénie Trochu
