Michaela Bercu by Peter Lindbergh for Vogue US November 1988
Jennifer Lopez is the latest Vogue US cover girl, and while the actual photo is very beautiful, I wonder why I am still subscribed to the magazine? Mind you, I live in Israel and it is a good $70+ for 12 issues. I am subscribed because I love the magazine and I have felt that the money was well spent, until now.
Jennifer Lopez does not interest me and if I wanted to know about her divorce and such I would be able to read all about it in Us Weekly and People Magazine...
I die for fashion; I am interested in the models, the muses to designers, and the designers themselves.
I want to get inspired by a Vogue cover, like I used to.
The cover posted here - THIS is a Vogue cover. THIS is what it is all about.
Michaela, an Israeli model, was 18 when this cover was shot. This was Anna Wintour's first Vogue cover as Editor-in-Chief. The top is by Christian Lacroix and the jeans are by an unknown brand, which costed $40 at the time.
You can go through the Vogue US cover archive on The Fashion Spot and see the way Vogue used to be - here
I do know that this post will not be changing Vogue or anything like that. But I would like to know if anyone shares these feelings, feel free to comment, I would love to hear from you. xx
