V72, the self-described “Transformation Issue,” takes metamorphosis as its theme. To that end the Fall Preview 2011 issue is chock full of change, rebirth, and renewal courtesy of a like themed letter on page 24, a beauty makeover subscription card, and a Penélope Cruz cover story by Mert & Marcus. Mr. V loves him some Penélope! There is also a lovely 30th birthday greeting to Michael Kors on pages 80-81 that features Ford’s Ming Xi, Tao Okamoto, and Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews. When isn’t the perennially young designer who turns 52 next month not celebrating his 30th? Truly. But, alas it is his label is celebrating its pearl anniversary and with a classy Fall 2011 collection. “No matter what we do, no matter what changes in the world, every woman I know wants to look taller and thinner and sexier,” Kors explains. “That’s never gonna change.” No doubt Aiden aspires to the same. All the same, Michael Kors, happy birthday on what is the big 3-0.
