Well. What do we have here. I know it’s been a while but rather than explain the how and the why related to my absence, let’s just cut to the chase: I just received this March 1994 issue of US Vogue and my Lord have I well chosen! Seriously, I cannot begin to explain the gem that is this issue. Remember that editorial shot by Meisel with glamazons wearing Chanel mini skirts courtesy of Karl? Up until a few years ago, I have been madly and incessantly trying to track down two things: the date of publication and the fashion editor of that image. To my joy and endless delight, “Stylist: The Interpreters of Fashion” the book that ultimately catapulted the fashion editor into proper stardom, had that exact photograph placed right into Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele’s portfolio, then US Vogue’s fashion director (along with Grace. Clearly there is no need for last names here).
I immediately ordered the issue and, as I started flicking through it with the same excitement like a kid in a candy store, couldn’t get over just how many photographs have become iconic that originally appeared in this issue! I call the following out takes a feast for the eyes. ENJOY!!!
