'Kiss Me Kate' For Emmanuelle Alt's 2nd Vogue Paris Cover

So here it is, the answer to all that 'Who will it be?' fashion speculation - the follow-up to Emmanuelle Alt's first cover for Vogue Paris which featured Gisele Bundchen - and yes, of course it's the Moss...Kate Moss.
Now, far be it from me to criticise a fashion shoot *cue cheeky side-eye*, but the image - shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott - is all kinds of teeny tiny Kate and some MAHOOSIVE hands?! In fact the hands (including the one over her crotch area) are so distracting that I've forgotten to look at Kate and work out which designer has dressed her for the shoot (but I'm guessing Balmain or Isabel Marant, natch). And the red, white and blue colour theme is just a little too Francais-in-your-face, but at least we won't forget it's French Vogue huh. The red also doesn't work against the tone of the jacket and Kate's signature 'throw yer head back and look sessy' pose seems to give her a thick neck.
But aside from all that, unlike her predecessor Roitfeld - who championed lesser known faces and models - seems that Alt's vision is to bring back 'The Supermodel', up against Nuclear Wintour, who just prefers good old A-list Celebs on her covers.
