Vogue, October, 1971

This cover from the October 1971 issue of Vogue, was one of the first under the direction of Grace Mirabella as editor.  If I did not know better, I’d have guessed that it was one of Diana Vreeland’s last, as the colored fur and flamboyant makeup are more of Vreeland than of Mirabella.  Under the editorship of Vreeland, Vogue had long been featuring just a head and shoulder shot for its covers.  Mirabella kept up the practice, though with predictably more beige results.

  1. Aside from maybe a bit too much purple eyeshadow, that look could be Today.
