How do you go about writing a column for Vogue?

Honestly, I had no idea. I used to dream about having my own column in a magazine I love like all my idols. I think back to Françoise Sagan, Nora Ephron or Woody Allen…

I thought it would be the greatest, coolest, most awesome thing ever. It would give me a chance to write in a different way, longer texts, more thought out, different than I do on the blog, but still staying super personal. But I knew it was the kind of thing that you don’t pitch to someone, they come to you with it.

Of course I dreamt of Paris Vogue, but I’ve got lots of dreams… Direct a film, learn to surf, write a song, start painting again, write a
cookbook with my father… Lots of them.

Sometimes it’s good just to dream though, you know?

And then one day after a runway show, Emmanuelle Alt said to me, “Why don’t we grab a coffee sometime.

Coffee? Ummm…. Of course! Every time we run into each other, Emmanuelle is so great. She’s so funny, cool, interesting, all of it. Of course, I’m still a little starstruck with her but I’ve grown since starting the blog, so I am able to keep my composure around her.
… Most of the time at least.
And then some other times it happened that I try a joke that misses its mark by a few hundred yards.

It’s just that I admire her. I get the impression that there’s a lot I can learn from her, like how to find my place in fashion, or how to be a modern woman, or how to wear skinny jeans.

So one day, when I was in Paris, I scheduled to meet her for a coffee. I arrived at the offices of Paris Vogue, went into her big white office where she was finishing a conversation with Capucine (the beautiful fashion & marketing editor). I didn’t really know where to sit or stand. (I decided years ago that my shyness was never really holding me back)(so I just stayed where I was…)

We chatted a little, laughed, and then she turned to me and said “Garance, would you want to write a column for us?”

Now, in the 6 years I’ve had my blog, it wasn’t the first time I’d been offered to work with a magazine. It wasn’t actually the first time I’d been asked to work with Vogue Paris, but in the past, it had never felt like it was the right time or the right job. Sometimes, even a very prestigious offer can feel like it’s not the right place for you and in that case, even if it hurts to say no, I try to go with what I feel in my gut.

This time it felt perfect. I got so excited I thought I was going to explode. But I just said :

“I’d love to!”

(It was no time to play hard to get.)

She told me what she was picturing and then called Olivier Lalanne, the amazing adjunct editor-in-chief of Paris Vogue, and the three of us all talked together.

I left our coffee date. I couldn’t believe my ears. With no warning, my dream became reality.
I could write about whatever I’d like. Be as free as you’d like, they told me. Don’t try to change the way you write. Don’t try to be “Vogue.” It’s your voice we want.

Voilà. And the rest you can imagine… Write, doubt, rewrite, redoubt, reread, change everything, and end up sending everything in and then die of anxiety right after clicking “send.” Then you want to unsend the e-mail to change one sentence (maybe if I hop on a plane to Paris right now – who cares if it’s 2 a.m.? – and sneak into the Vogue offices – I know how to get the door open with a paperclip – I’ll be just in time to delete the e-mail that I so stupidly sent.)

And then you wait. You wait and tell yourself that they hated it but whatever, it’s fine, move on. You wait and tell yourself that it’s all going to work out. It’ll be fine… You wait. You wait.

And then one day, you get an e-mail that says, “We loved it!” and you run off to wake up Scott with your news.

I still haven’t come down off my cloud. Well, I guess I have, but just to work on my second column. I hope the third soon! Wahoo!

My first column was in September’s Vogue, along with a very cool redesign of the layout. Thank you to everyone who has already sent me e-mails and tweets and saying they enjoyed it. Nothing brings me more joy… I’ll try to see if I can have the column translated and published here. Much love ! G

    Yes ! I saw what you wrote for the magazine ! I found it good. But tell me, you won’t become a writer for them, right ? It’s just occasionally ?

    I can imagine the joy, the fear, the stress and all the other emotions you must have felt! Like all beautiful experiences and great projects in life, it requires a good dose of courage and the ability not to take oneself too seriously and work, work, work!

    CONGRATS, Garance!!! You deserve it! Let me tell you, I particularly appreciate how humble and appreciative you are about all the wonderful opportunities you get! You never take them for granted and NEVER lose your enthusiasm about it!! I love that about you because it comes through in your writing….you are vulnerable, and that’s the BEST way to connect!!

    et tout ça était follement chic.
    magnifique numéro de Vogue by the way! pas mal leur nouvelle maquette.

    I don’t know why but I feel so proud because of you.
    It seems like someone really ordinary (eventhough to me you are super extraordinary) is in magicland of fashion – live with Scott Schuman, you get to work with Net-a-porter, drink coffee with Emmanuelle Alt, stay in places like Il Pelicano, etc. You make a dream come true and we can all share it with you.
    I am so happy for you and really appreciate that after all these years you keep it so personal!

    Félicitations, ça me donne envie d’acheter le magazine, plus que Kate (qui est certes belle dans cette tenue mais) en couverture pour la 100000ème fois. Le Vogue français pas très original niveau égéries de couverture, toujours les mêmes.

    Oh my goodness. I’m so sad that I’m not fluent in French or I would follow you everywhere in the world that involves text and photos and etc. You are so deserving of this job and you’re going to be so good at it. I know it. Your voice is so unique and connects your beautiful self to so many fashion lovers. Please please please, keep spreading your magic. :)

    Bonjour Garance,

    Ahhh, je viens à peine de rentrer de vacances. Mon blog est en friche, ma boîte mail au bureau a menacé de m’arraché tout le captial repos que j’ai accumulé ces deux dernières semaines. Mais cette excellente nouvelle m’a boostée plus que jamais. Félicitations!!!!!

    En fait, je découvre à peine ton post. Dimanche, une fois le pied posé sur le sol belge (oui, l’extension de la France), je me suis ruée dans le premier “Relay” du coin, au bord de l’asphyxie, question de vie ou de mort, il me fallait ma dose de mode….inutile de dire que mes doigts n’ont pu résister à l’appel envoûtant du Vogue Paris (exceptionnel en ce moment). Tiens-donc, différentes couvertures? J’opte pour Kate. Valeur sûre. De toute façon, je manquais de temps pour tergiverser. Monsieur, derrière les portes vitrées, sourcillait déjà en me faisant comprendre qu’il tombait de fatigue, notre petit garçon de 2 ans sautillant dans ton les sens à ses pieds. Une fois posée à la maison, fondue dans mon canapé, je feuillette doucement les pages, jusqu’à tomber sur les recto verso 235-236! Le Smoking – Mode d’emploi. J’aime le titre – HUMEUR – est-ce là que se trouvait concentré tout l’HUMOUR du Vogue Paris? J’attaque donc. Jusque là j’avoue qu’avec la fatigue, je n’avais pas réalisé qu’il s’agissait de ton article. Je le lis avec entrain, je me sens à l’aise, je le trouve vrai, je le trouve parlant, je me dis….mais qui a écrit ce magnifique article? C’est alors que je m’arrête au point final si particuliers…mais toujours pas le nom de l’auteur. Je reviens sur la première page, je réalise comme si la terre venait de me tomber dessus qu’il s’agit de ton écriture, de ton illustration, avant de voir qu’en dessous du mot HUMEUR – était écrit en lettres écarlate Garance Doré!!! Je pousse un cri de joie! Chéri, ça c’est la classe!!! Tu sais Garance, celle que je suis, celle qui dont je suis fan, mon modèle, mon gourou, mon maître Yoda du fashion bloggin….celle qui m’inspire et dont je ne parviens pas à acheter la cover pour iPhone (pas livré chez nous), est dans Vogue Paris. Vogue Paris, tu t’en rends compte!!?? Le pauvre, happé par le sommeil, m’entendais gesticuler au loin.. C’est vraiment génial…grommela-t-il. Sentant mes yeux lui brûler la peau, il décide de les ouvrir…et me regarde, à moitié endormi…”oui c’est génial ma chérie. Tu viens te coucher?” Oui, j’arrive. J’ignorais hier soir que toutes tes fans étaient en symbiose pour te souhaiter le meilleur! J’arrive en retard, mais l’émotion & la fierté partagée.

    Tu es notre modèle! Merci Garance de rendre le “Yes, we can” une réalité.

    A bientôt,
    Yeba

    i love that you were so honest in this post about getting this dream opportunity. i think that’s why you’ll succeed; because even with the amount of success you’ve already had, you’re still willing to show your vulnerability – that you are just like everyone else who is chasing a dream and just not quite there yet (only, you’re pretty much there) – the experience, the doubts, the anxiety, the awkward moments when you don’t know where to stand or sit for your meeting – which all allow the reader to truly feel for you and experience the joy with you when you hear that dream offer come from someone you admire! congratulations! truly!

    Your honesty in your writing really captures how it feels to be a writer- or any person really- who puts his or her work out there to be judged. I have been through similar experiences submitting copy that I have written: overanalyzing every sentence I try to write, dying of anxiety after sending it to my editor, but finally realizing that it all turns out okay. I was thrilled to see your column in the September issue, and I hope to see more of you in print!

I couldn’t say you are “lucky” cause you deserve this (and more) and i hope they let you publish the column here (Vogue Paris is not sold in the city i’m living right now) so I can read it and spread the voice! Congratulations Garance!!! It seems you are the It girl of the season ;)

Moi qui ne porte jamais de noir, (enfin ça vient un peu) j’avais pas envie d’acheter le Vogue, ben j’ai foncé pour lire ta rubrique. Et je dois dire que tu t’en sors super bien, que je suis trop contente que tu fasses le team avec E.Alt et O.Lalanne que je trouve trop canons tous les deux ! J’ai pensé à cette géniale photo de cette beauté australienne en smoking blanc et converse assis sur une chaise ! bravissimo !

    En tout honnêteté, j’aurai 18ans dans 6jours, et je n’avais jamais lu un VOGUE ! Je préférai me “conserver” et garder vraiment ma vision naïve de la mode (vogue est quelque chose de trop grand, trop impressionnant pour moi..). Mais quand j’ai vue qu’il y avait ton nom, je me suis dis “allez, c’est le moment”, et je dois dire que ça m’a plut.. beaucoup plut, énormément même ! Et je ne dis pas ça pour faire ma gentille, mais je trouve que ton écriture est de loin celle que je préfère.. elle paraît tellement réelle et plus vrai que le reste de Vogue.. Elle me “traduit” un peu tout le thème du magazine. Et grâce à toi, tout les mois, le magazine aura une nouvelle lectrice.
    Bon courage pour la suite et j’espère que tes écrits seront toujours aussi bons, mais je n’en doute pas.

    One more question, woul you be able to expand a bit on why those previous offers from Vogue or other magazines were not for you? It would be really interesting to read a blog post that expands on the tempting offers you have had and why you had to turn them down. I ask because frm whereI am sitting, no matter where you are in your career righting for Paris Vogue or any other magazine could only be a step up. You know what I mean?

    Si, ça se demande Garance, moi j’avais écrit a prince Poniatowski (directeur à l’époque)pour lui proposer mes sevrices dans une rubrique et il a dit oui. Super bien payé. Le problème c’est que quelques mois plus tard la direction a totallement changé et quand j’ai demandé ce que j’allais devenir personne ne m’a jamais répondu. Donc exit Andrea…Dommage…

    ohh! Congradulations!

    Please publish it here! I was almost ready to get up and go buy a copy of Vogue before realizing it’s “Paris Vogue” and that I probably can’t get it in US, or is able to read French.

    Bravo ! I felt your words .I to had a dream years ago after graduating to illustrate for Italian Vogue ,influenced by Stavrannos,Pasantino,and Antonio (who I hired and directed to do some work while at I Magnin later on ) .a client commissioned me to do Illustrations in Italian Vogue and the New Yorker . Made little money , but was high for two weeks after they came out . So I eventually worked my way to Creative Director .Now just starting my own Clothing line .A new beginning …..isn’t it great to LOVE what we do?
    Again ,Congrats !

    Yet another reason to buy my favorite Vogue Paris!

    where do I get my hands on it?! Congratulations, Garance! I admire you for having gone with your gut feeling in the past. Most people would have grabbed any prestigious job for a magazine. Haven’t seen it yet, but it sounds it is going to be an extension of what you’re doing here and that sounds wonderful and will no doubt boost you as the bloggeuse par excellence!

    Directos parce que le VOGUE avait changé de maquette je suis allée acheter le nouveau mag, et quand j’ai vu ta rubrique, mon dieu j’ai failli mourir de bonheur. Eh oui, à force de te suivre c’est moment là on les vit presque (presque!) comme toi… Et il était parfait.
    J’aime aussi ce que tu dis dans ton post, parce que c’est bien de savoir que quand on marche à l’instinct, les choses marchent aussi et presque mieux.

    bravo et merci!

    Garance, I know it’s absurd for me to say this (as we don’t actually know each other), but I am SO proud for you!! This is such wonderful news, and I can only *imagine* how marvellous the feeling must be to see your very own column – in your words – in Vogue!

    Congratulations!

    You never feel tired to listen about dreams become true!
    But we forget everything you can see it has been a dream of someone… And then we are full of idiots who tell you keep your feet in the ground and don’t look any where else… What is the risk? To fly?!

  • Mélanie D. September, 10 2012, 3:23 / Reply

    Je fus tout d’abord surprise par la présence d’une rubrique que je ne connaissais pas dans le Vogue. Et puis, j’ai commencé à lire. Et puis, j’ai très vite adoré ! C’est léger, c’est frais, c’est drôle : “Peut-on porter un smoking dans un restaurant no smoking ?” Je crois bien que c’est ce qui manquait chez Vogue. J’attends avec impatience votre prochaine chronique pour le mois d’octobre !

  • w. September, 21 2012, 3:27 / Reply

    J’ai enfin lu ton article (avec presque un mois de retard “honte à moi” !!). Moi qui n’avais pas eu le temps d’aller acheter le Vogue de Septembre, l’ai trouvé sur le bureau d’une amie, miracle, je me suis ruée dessus pour y chercher The Article de Garance Doré ! Et j’ai été tout simplement séduite, j’ai ADORE !! Comme une évidence, le Smoking ! Moi qui cherchais un nouveau style entre professionnel et chic, le Smoking ! Perfect ! Même si du haut de mes 19 ans la seule chose qu’on dirait de moi serait “Mais pour qui se prend-t-elle ?”.. A ton avis Garance, pouvons nous porter un smoking lorsqu’on à 19ans et que nous sommes une petite étudiante en publicité ?

  • Thi Minh Tu VU October, 4 2012, 6:32 / Reply

    je les ai lu, vos articles sur le smoking, puis le fashion week, et juste pour vous dire qu’ils sont parfaits!!! votre sens de l’humour je l’adore, et vos mots sur la mode est vraiment pointu, vous savez c’est comme ce qu’on a toujours senti mais on n’est pas capable de le formuler de façon si franc mais si cool tout de même. votre rubrique est un nouveau souffle a la vogue fr que je trouve parfois un peu trop “noble”. Merci beaucoup!!! can’t wait till the next vogue to read your entry!!

    Mais c’est surréel que tu as pu réaliser ton rêve !!!!!!!! Ça devait vraiment être… suréel ! Je me permet aussi de rêver d’écrire pour le Vogue Paris (ou n’importe quel autre, rendu là!) et c’est toujours encouragent de savoir que ce genre de rêve peut parfois devenir réalité ! Féliciations !!!!!

    Et ça continue toujours, il y a toujours ta rubrique dans Vogue? Tout les mois, ou ponctuellement?
    (je viens de lire ce post car étais en train de regarder les photos des archives de The Sartorialist , j’en étais à août 2012 et.. tu connais la suite))
