Yes, it's Vendela. I remember seeing the editorial in the magazine.

^They need model experts like us


Here what they say about 1987 :

1987 might just be one of the best years for pop culture ever. The Princess Bride, Wall Street, Dirty Dancing, and Spaceballs were among the top 10 highest grossing films of the year; Kasey Kasem counted down hits like U2’s “With or Without You,” George Michael’s “Faith,” The Bangles’ “Walk Like an Egyptian,” and arguably one of the most makeout-session assured slow-dance numbers in modern history: Chris Deburgh’s “Lady in Red.”

1987 was a banner year for ELLE, too. Not only had the magazine made it through its first full year in circulation (an accomplishment that was no small feat even in the booming ‘80s) but it was thriving—each new issue adding a few more ad pages than the last. Designers at the top of their game included Stephen Sprouse, Issey Miyake, Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klein, and furrier Chantal Thomass, all of whose collections were featured in ELLE’s pages, often in prominent designer-spotlight fashion stories. The trends were heavily geared toward sportswear: matchy-matchy knits, colorblocked coats, and casual leather. Punctuating these looks were the accessories: bauble-y, oversized jewelry, John Lennon-style round sunglasses, long-strapped purses, simple suede pumps, Bass Weejun loafers, and jewel-tone skimmers.

The first ELLE cover featured a copper-lidded Yasmin Le Bon in nothing but knits and one of the decade’s most recognizable accessories—oversized hoop earrings. (September 1985)

Molly!!

When Molly Ringwald posed for this shoot, she was in the middle of filming Pretty in Pink—her second John Hughes film. With the blockbuster success of their first collaboration (Sixteen Candles), and their third (The Breakfast Club) already scheduled for the following year, Ringwald was the undisputed It-girl of the mid-’80s. And apparently, according to this article, Warren Beatty was her mentor, which is…interesting. (October 1985)

A mink-lined blue leather parka, matching stretch pants, and a serious-faced scissor kick—the silly opulence of 1985 personified in one of ELLE’s first fashion stories. (October 1985)

About to premiere One Crazy Summer opposite John Cusack and the racy romance About Last Night… with Rob Lowe, a 23-year-old Demi Moore (who at the time was planning her second marriage, to Emilio Estevez) slips into Capezio ballet slippers and an OMO Normal Kamali skirt to discuss her hyper successful new career—and how she runs 6-8 miles “every single day” to keep her figure intact. (August 1986)

Models with short crops were definitely more prevalent in the late ’80s than they were in the years previous (or today). In this beauty/accessory story titled, “Oh Boy!” pixied models don denim—the washes of which are now a little darker—covered in flair. These sequined pins and bracelets are all from the House of Lesage, one of Europe’s most renowned embroidery and beading outfits. Though owned by Chanel, Lesage also currently supplies the vast majority of beading and embroidery for Dior and Lanvin. (March 1988)


what's her name again?

That's for sure. They said Yasmin Le Bon was on the 1/90 cover when it's obviously Yasmeen Ghauri. I attempted to correct them some time ago, but they deleted my comment and stood by their conclusion.

I do like the remarks they make about popular poses that were featured in the day's editorials. Like the "crossed legs, intense face" look.

In the spring/summer ’88 collections, polka dots apparently dominated, as we learn from the fashion story “Go Dotty.” This menswear-inspired ensemble features designs by Apostrophe, Charvet, and Paul Smith. (July 1988)

Yes,tiggerouge,thanks!

Long before Lindsay Lohan was brought on as a creative consultant, the House of Ungaro was built on the designer’s “give women what they need to seduce and charm” mantra. In the profile “Ultra Ungaro,” the then-55-year-old Ungaro sold approximately $100 million per year in the United States, placing him among the top echelon of bankable RTW designers. (September 1988)

That is so gorgeous! I wish they would mention who photographed it, it's Tyen to me, but i'd like to know for sure.

Beauty in 1988 continued to trend away from the gauche, pageant-y look that defined the decade’s earlier years. Bronze, coral, and neutral, peachy metallics were popular for daytime, while a more classic, ’50s-inspired cat-eye and crimson lip dominated evening. (September 1988)

ELLE used to fill their January issues with multiple swimwear stories, and here, a young Cindy Crawford epitomizes late ‘80s/almost-‘90s beach style with a fresh face and neon surf gear from Op and Body Glove (January)
Yes they did and their swimsuit editorials are etched in my brain forever.

Much like it did in 2008, all things and materials sheer were immensely popular in the spring of 1989. In the fashion story “Sheer Pleats,” models flaunted the season’s most delicate sculptural looks. Shown here, a woven, “crimped” top and trousers, both from Issey Miyake. (April)
Gooorgeous,i'd kill for that outfit.

The evolution of the female power suit continued its unconventional path in the fashion story “The Business of Style” (written by guest editor Sarah Ferguson), which featured brightly-hued blazers paired with contrast-colored cigarette pants, high-waisted, wide-legged trousers, and even a pair of nautical striped short shorts. (May)
