A parade of Paris Vogue covers, on the Champs Elysees!

Oui, oui, oui, we know.

You wish you were in Paris to walk alongside the “catwalk” of glamour, but you don’t have to be. We have the photo gallery of some of the best French Vogue covers that line the Champs Elysees right now.

In celebration of its 90th anniversary, Paris Vogue gloriously displays 80 of its greatest covers along the most famous thoroughfare in France.

The magazine has featured some of the most renowned photographers and artists of our time and the blown up covers on the Champs Elysees feature Richard Avedon, Bakst, Cecil Beaton, Benito, Christian Bérard, Guy Bourdin, Salvador Dali, Patrick Demarchelier, Robert Doisneau, David Hockney, Horst, Hoyningen-Huene, William Klein, George Lepape, Man Ray, Mert & Marcus, Joan Miró, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Edward Steichen, Mario Testino, Andy Warhol, and Bruce Weber.

If you can’t get to the exhibit, you can buy the book with an additional 32 covers.

Savor the gorgeousness, below. — Richard, the Paris Insider
