Those were the days, my friend :)

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.
