Vintage Vanity Fair covers
After seeing a bunch of old and beautifull Vanity Fair covers from the eighties over at Fashist and hearing all those stories about how great the covers were in the 80s and early 90s, I thought it would be great to start a thread about it. So if you have scans/pictures from old covers post them! With the date and photographer (if you that info) and of course the source.

^I still like it, Emil , it was before Victoria became a caricature of her self. Was this only the cover for the British version or also the American one?

Btw, I can't believe I missed this issue when it came out, back in those days (when I was just a mere 16 years old ) I used to buy everything with any Spice Girls on it, because I was such a great Spice Girls fan
