Isn’t this a fantastic illustration? You know who it is immediately!
Only 12 days til Christmas! Who’s excited?!

Good to know I’m not the only one.
Refinery 29 has posted a fantastic illustrated slideshow −by Joana Avillez−of the world’s top fashion editors.
Pretty pictures and fun facts. Luv it.
I could be convinced to commit murder for the chance to be drawn by David Downton.
Watch him talk about his process. Amazing.
And see his finished illustration of Carolina Herrera for Vanity Fair here.
I’ve been known to buy two copies of the same Vogue because I want to be able to rip pages out of one and keep the other for posterity− on more than one occasion.
Yes, my obsession with Vogue, and September issues in particular, is that…intense. So I was stoked to see that the mag’s editors have raided the archives and posted some of their favorite covers online.
Peep the slideshow here.
P.S. The cover above, featuring an illustration by Benito, dates back to 1929.
