    would love to see all of her cover stories from the 70s if you got them @justaguy ,she was so fierce, Avedon did great job with her in the other issues she was featured,also i'd love to see the issue from 70s with Elizabeth Taylor, i think the cover photographer was Helmut Newton

    I think I posted all of them on here but I might repost with the better images through the archive!! I think she had 5 covers but was also in countless editorials in the 60s & 70s.

    The covershot is so nerdy LOL ...But these 2 are so gorgeous and the full-body shot would have been an all-out glamslam cover.

    Agreed. Much better cover options in her editorial.

    ^^^ Nerdy Cher is cute since she was just possessed of a painterly surreal beauty in the 70s and having her appear cheeky would be relatable. It’s so odd that all the covers for nearly 3 decades have always never deviated from close-cropped faces. I guess the strategy was that people passing by the newsstands would see a life-size face of a glamorous woman smiling at them and be attracted to buying the issue.

    I read an article on the close-ups and remember thinking the reasoning made perfect sense. Now I can't remember the content of the article. :lol: Either way, I am a huge fan of those close-ups. Cher's November '75 is outstanding as is her December '72 cover.

    ^^^ Even better was that period in the early/mid-2000 when the close-cropped face got even closer: Madonna’s Vogue Italia cover by Klein with just a third of her face obscured by a mass of hair; and my fav was Vogue Homme’s so-close cropped wet lips of some guy in deeply saturated colors. And it worked— I snatched that up right away without even looking through the contents...
