Beyoncé’s Vogue cover comes to life.
“In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye.” premieres Dec. 6 on HBO.
Yet another fashion documentary I have to see…
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.
In honor of Vogue’s 120th anniversary, Anna Wintour has shared her favorite images from the mag at Vogue.com.
The November 1988 cover, above, was her first as editor.
In Anna’s words:
What none of us expected was to run that picture on the cover, least of all the magazine’s printers, who called up and asked with some consternation, “Has there been a mistake?” I couldn’t blame them. It was so unlike the studied and elegant close-ups that were typical of Vogue’s covers back then, with tons of makeup and major jewelry. This one broke all the rules. Michaela wasn’t looking at you, and worse, she had her eyes almost closed. Her hair was blowing across her face. It looked easy, casual, a moment that had been snapped on the street, which it had been, and which was the whole point.
Joan Smalls is one of my favorite models. Such presence! And, of course, she’s beautiful!
Apparently good looks run in the family. Peep the video to see what I mean.
In honor of the London 2012 Summer Games, the June issue of Vogue features several hard-bodied Olympic hopefuls, and the lithe Karlie Kloss, as seen through Annie Leibovitz’s lens.
The results are pretty fabulous. Check ‘em:

Luv the first shot of Ashton and Karlie. Using her as a stand-in for the hurdle was inspired.
The first shot of Dwyane and Karlie seems kind of silly since he’s attempting to shoot, but he’s obviously shooting away from the basket. I guess they wanted readers to see him from the front, but we get that view in the last shot.
Still…well done, Vogue.
Anna Wintour talks about “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” on “The Colbert Report.” She’s very charming in these laid-back evening talk show interviews. I think they’ve really helped her shed that ice queen image.
