Apologies for this morning's post running a little late - I was at the U2 concert lastnight!!!
I found this very cool blog, Vintage Fashion Magazines, when searching for Vintage Friday images. She is a collector of vintage Vogue and has scanned and posted pages from the 60's up to the early 80's editions. Unfortunately she had to sell her collection so she won't be adding any more but take a look anyway - there are still some really great images to browse through.
The 3rd cover model of each row is Veruschka, one of the top models of the time.
She had quite an interesting childhood - she was the daughter of an extremely wealthy
German Count and Countess. Her father became part of the German Resistance and
was assassinated for plotting to kill Hitler! After that her family spent time in labour
camps and were homeless by the end of the war. She was discovered at the age of 20 in
Florence and became a full time model.
"Night Drifts - The Unbelted Dress" - 1966
Love them! The hair and makeup are beautiful as well.
I couldn't leave out the 80's since we are seeing styles much like these again in today's fashion magazines.

Happy Vintage Friday!
