JP's recent post about Tina Fey was a great one. Tina Fey is one of the hardest working and most beloved people in entertainment these day and it is well-deserved adoration. That said, the subject of her being on the cover of the ever important March issue of Vogue 2010 has reared it's head again and I just can't let it go. Tina Fey is not the problem. For me, she was just the cover 'model' that went too far. That's because, when I was in my teens and 20's (formidable years, in terms of shaping your fashion psyche), these are examples of what arrived in my mailbox...
|Say what you will about Linda Evangelista...she was one of the greatest models of all time...and this cover is a work of art.|
|This pic has been on Ooh La La Du Jour before. Any excuse to post it again. Gorgeous.|
|The top of their field...I never got tired of looking at a single one of them.|
|Along came Kate...brilliant, from head to toe.|
|I always remember when this April 1994 issue of Harper's Bazaar arrived in my mailbox...in the middle of a miserable ice storm, when I was living in Washington, D.C. It was an absolute beacon of warmth and inspiration.|
|And more recently, Lara Stone on the cover of the 90th anniversary issue of French Vogue. 100% unforgettable.|
And here is what we are 'treated' to now...
Give me a break.
