HIGH HEELED: French fashion magazine Stiletto celebrated its 10th anniversary on Tuesday evening with a cocktail party at Paris concept store Colette. Alber Elbaz, Guillaume Henry and Dominique Issermann were among guests.
Issermann shot the three covers for the issue, starring Naomi Campbell dressed head to toe in Azzedine Alaïa. “Naomi doesn’t do editorials anymore, but she accepted because she wanted to pay homage to him,” said Stiletto editorial director and founder Laurence Benaïm.

A collector edition with 1,000 hardcover copies have been printed, priced at 40 euros, or $54. “My ambition is to develop an app and the digital side as well as more special editions that would be more like actual books. I want to cultivate both ends of the spectrum,” Benaïm said. The magazine is published in both English and French. Benaïm said circulation is 35,000 including 15,000 internationally.
Benaïm wrote a book called “Azzedine Alaïa, le prince des lignes,” by French publisher Grasset, that is set to release in bookstores in France on Oct. 16.
