It may still be July, but Vanity Fair is already hyping its September style issue, featuring Annie Leibovitz’s photograph of French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy on the cover (pictured above) and a profile by Maureen Orth inside (asked to comment on Bruni, Jean-Paul Gaultier says, “She is like the heroine of a book or a movie”). Bruni’s equestrian-influenced cover wardrobe made us think of another Paris-based VF cover, from October 2005, not to mention Si Newhouse’s sharp eye for saddlery.
