American Vogue February 1 1972 : Karen Graham by David Bailey
Scanned some of the goodies from this mag. It's contents are far more enjoyable than the somewhat bizarre cover.

Cover: Karen Graham by David Bailey
Photographers: Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton
Models: Karen Graham, Donna Michell and a bunch of unknowns. Is the blonde in the Newton ed Gunilla Lindblad and another could be Pola?

Outtake from an editorial by Richard Avedon. Model may be Donna Mitchell.

Most of the shots from a Newton editorial. Blonde is probably Gunilla Lindblad and the girl on the back of the truck could be the ill-fated Pola.

wow, some of this is really great! I would also love to see the masthead, but to answer Softgrey's question, Anna did not find her way to Vogue until the early 80's as far as I am aware, and was not EIC until 87ish??? Could be wrong...

EIC: Grace Mirabella.
Editorial director: Alexander Liberman
Associate editor: Kate Lloyd, Carrie Donovan
Art director: Priscilla Peck
Consulting editor: Diana Vreeland

Senior fashion editors: Babs Simpson, Nicolas de Gunzberg
Fashion editors: Polly Allen Mellen, Gloria Moncur, Dorothea Elkon, Linda Frankel

There's more info, feel free to ask if there's anything more specific, I think I'll just scan the masthead next time, it's quite interesting that Diana V was still involved.

I love almost all Grace Mirabella's American Vogues until 1983, especially when they have Newton on board.

That was what first popped into my head too! It just looks so contemporary! Considering how widely reported it is that pre-Wintour Vogue was doudy, etc. I was really shocked at how cool these eds were. Not to mention how much we seem to have been reflecting on this moment over the last year...

Grace Mirabella lost her touch in 1983 and Vogue became very health centric, in a rather boring and pathetic way, but it should be understood in the context of AIDS which struck so many of the most gifted American designers and crew (Halston, Perry Ellis, Rudy Gernreich, Way Bandy, Bill King and so many others).

Anna Wintour got things back on track. I think it's the wrong track, but it was better than Grace Mirabella's latest efforts. Even if AW was the EIC in 1989, her influence became significant in 1986 or 87, while GM became less and less interested in fashion. Around that time, the two most powerful American fashionistas/artists died - Diana Vreeland and Andy Warhol (as far as I understand, a critic of AW, at least judging from his diaries, well, he seems to pity her, really), and that contributed, I think, to AW's supremacy.
