A few more COSMO covers, some old, and some not so old - my own scans (several versions of some).
Click on thumbnails for BIG pictures.
May 1979: Michelle Stevens (who did everything, including numerous editorials in US VOGUE) by Scavullo:

Sept 1982: Andie MacDowell (when she was still a model - and she was everywhere back then: ads & editorials) by Scavullo:

Oct 1982: Paulina Porizkova (a GODDESS, for sure! Where are the models that look like this today?) by Scavullo:

Nov 2003: Molly Sims by Demarchelier:

Thank you so much for even more scans. Wow. Scvullo always said Paulina was his favorite model, and the most beautiful. Somehow she even looks vibrant wearing gray.

It's interesting to be able to compare several classic covers to a recent one that's almost a throwback to the old style. The white background is modern but I prefer the candy-hued covers. I think the differences in text also cheapen the image.

exactly, that's why I hate Mert and Marcus the masters of the fake, In the 80's there was a whole roster of magnificent photographers like Scavullo, Avedon, Newton, Bourdin, Von Wangenheim .....

i love this thread. thanks to all for scans and links. i wandered over here via this salon article-
http://www.salon.com/books/review/20...own/index.html
it's an article about a new book about the cosmopolitan editor who made all this saucyness happen, Helan Gurley Brown. called "bad girls go everywhere". i forgot how i sort of loved her, and once found an ancient copy of "sex and the single girl", read it just for fun, then started using the tips in there- ie. don't buy huge value packs of items like toilet paper, keep your money for important things like a good wardrobe! something like that. i always hated on cosmopolitan a bit, though i once saw a video of a scavullo shoot and was awestruck. i still remember his leather boy motorcycle hat and a lot of hair! but now, looking at the 60s, 70s, 80s scans, i LOVE it. it's outrageous. just to watch the evolving colour schemes, the use of heightened shadows [darkened highlights?] it looks like at some points, or soft focus, the candy colours. but then the constants- hair, scanty clothing, and always that look in their eyes.

and as an aside, there was a comment [captain bob?] about it odd that a model wouldn't do lingerie. it isn't that odd, there were always choices about do you do lingerie, swimsuits, fur, be in ads for cigarettes, alcohol. they were [maybe still are] standard questions models were asked when setting up with an agency.

ciao

There are two Cosmo threads. I wonder if they should be combined?
This thread and the " 30 Years of Cosmo" thread in the Vintage Magazines Forum:
