I had no problems with 2D :-(

The world has officially gone 3D crazy. It seems that every form of media comes in a 3D format from cinema to TV to who knows maybe even radio someday (I would love to see them try). I personally had no problems with 2D.

It was nice to go to the cinema and not have to wear these silly things on your head for a film thats over 2 hours long. You leave the film with not only an interesting storyline but with a banging headache. I feel lucky that I haven't had to to sit in one of the front rows with these glasses but the time will surely come.

And now the craze has made its way to Vogue! Oh why?!?

The September issue of Vogue Italia has a cover and 22 page editorial is 3D. This is the first Vogue Italia cover for Australian Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr (and her cute dog Frankie) and it was photographed by the legend that is Steven Meisel.

There is no doubt that this is a milestone in the fashion magazine industry but I have to say I am not too keen on the fact 3D is everywhere. The magazine even comes with a special pair of 3D glasses so you can. The time may come when we all have to permanently carry around a special pair of 3D glasses to view anything.

Here are some of the images from the photoshoot. Its a 22 page editorial so this is only a selection of the images. The rest can be seen via this link: Miranda Kerr for Vogue Italia - September Issue


As much as I complain about 3D I cannot deny how gorgeous this editorial is. The photographer captured the essence of Miranda's beauty and I am curious to see how the shots look in 3D. I love the editorial but I think it would have been just as effective and beautiful in 2D.

But what do you guys think? 3D OR 2D VOGUE.

I have to say that although I hate 3D and love this editorial, Im torn!



  1. The pictures are gorgeous!
    I'm not keen on 3D either.

  2. 2d is okay, like 3d too!
    the pic with the cigarette is great♥!

  3. I'm not a fan of 3D either, however these pictures are beautiful - tks for adding the video =) - I love your blog. I am a new follower

  4. Not sure how these pics would be enhanced in 3D (they look amazing in 2D) and think the whole 3D thing is overrated. at least Vogue was trying to be innovative.....

    ps: thanks for your comments! I'm now a follower! xx

  5. i don't get the big 3d thing. i love this editorial because the photos are beautiful. but it's obvious to see that you can't get the true beauty of this editorial without 3d glasses on, which sucks. they should have had it in both 2d and 3d online.

    so i'm for the 2d!

  6. Barney's Co-Op did their last catalog in 3D. Now I know the inspiration . . .

  7. @etoile 8: thanks for that. will have to look it up. x


Thanks for all your lovely comments! - Fikki and Lola xx
