Dear Claire Dhelens,
As you are a French Voguette (a fashion and accessories editor to be precise), I was primed to be a fan. In fact, I’m sorry that it has taken me so long to identify you among that amazing posse of black-clad, long-limbed ladies that traipse through the Tuileries. I’ll admit that Emmanuelle and Capucine caught my attention first — je suis désolé! But with your American west-themed editorial for the children’s supplement of French Vogue, you’ve got my attention. In fact, you’ve even managed to get me to post pictures of kids on here. No mean feat, let me tell you. This happens virtually never.
With that said, I’ll just allow everyone else to enjoy these lovely photos by Andreas Sjodin, styled by Mme. Dhelens.

I have always adored Halloween. I think it probably has a lot to do with the fact that during my formative years my mom took the time to make costumes for all three of us (and usually also for herself and my dad) from scratch – and they were always of our own choosing. We’d all make a special trip to the (usually boring) fabric store with renewed interest, ready to pick something amazing from those big floppy pattern books.
In the first grade, the most amazing thing I could think to be was a dinosaur. And my mother, bless her heart, obliged her tomboy with the felt creation you see above. However, you’ll also note that she added two bows and a bit of lipstick.
“If you’re going to be a dinosaur,
at least you’re gonna be a GIRL dinosaur!”
You know, maybe it’s high time for a repeat.
What are you going to be?
