Vintage Vogue Covers
In the spirit of vintage Vogue magazine covers, I decided to do the photos of what I wore on Sunday in a rather artistic manner. Thanks to my sister for the lovely images- these are straight out of the camera no photo editing required!
I received for Christmas a few years ago a copy of “Vogue: The Covers” edited by Dodie Kazanjian, and have consistently been impressed by how completely artistic the covers of Vogue used to be- not glamour shots of famous celebrities, but rather dramatically composed canvases in which to showcase fashion and style.
For these photos I was inspired by the image of the hands from 1939, and since I was wearing an early 1940’s style outfit, the mood worked perfectly. (Except for the part where I was trying to make the hands not look like a murderer reaching out to strangle someone! It’s harder than it looks!)
(The strangler is coming for you!)
(The hands slowly reach around her neck.)
(She’s a goner. Feet in the air.)
