I love Gwen Stefani’s cover for the January issue of Vogue: the face, the pose, the clothes.
I think it supports my theory that music-industry people — including Gwen, Rihanna and Gaga — make much better high-fashion models than most actors. Yep, if you’re not going to give me supermodels, give me singers, fashion magazines! Actors seem to do better on Vanity Fair covers. Can you believe I’ve kept this iconic issue in my bookcase since 1991?
It’s nice to open that magazine and immediately see a Versace ad featuring my favorite model, Linda Evangelista.

I totally support supermodels or singers for magazine covers!
Oh, I saw Helena in the West Village the other day. Tall, flawless skin, elegant. I probably show my age that I recognized her!
I think of all the fashion mags, Vogue does the BEST covers. And those shoes…want!

Bwahaha! I have two copies of that VF issue: one to read and another, still in its “modesty” newstand wrapper, for posterity.
Hi my dear!! Totally agree about seeing supermodels and musicians on covers, I adore seeing the classic supermodel adverts back in the early 90s, its just not the same nowadays! Hope you are well and having a great week xxx
In full agreement with you. I miss the days when magazine covers were the domains of supermodels. I like actresses on my screens but give me Christy, Helena, Cindy, Naomi, Linda any day. Besides Gisele I’m really ignorant of those five’s current counterparts.
I actually remember that Versace ad, I also remember that cover, it caused such a stir. What a great idea that you kept some of these magazines. I never noticed actors vs vocal artists but I will from now on.
