    OMG WORK Ms. Winfrey :lol:. Do you have the issue, Xavier? Could you post a review if so?

    BTW mods, shouldn't this be moved to Vintage Mags since it's over 10 years old?

    Yeah, as soon as I'm done catching up on my subscribed threads i'll make a review for you guys! Miss Dalloway, I'm always looking on eBay for Vintage issues, so i'll keep an eye out for you if you like:)
    Also I'm a little rusty with the models names, so bare with me, I'm stuck in the whole Trentini, Anna J time :lol:

    Xavier, thanks for your snaps.If there is a chance you could snap Winfrey's article to read, i would very much appreciate, because would love to see how she and Van Meter hit it off.^_^

    Also any other snaps from this issue would be great, i like how the cover is super clean of text, its beautiful.And surprised to see Paul styled the ed, shame he is mostly at Allure now.

    US Vogue October 1998 Review:

    Absolute Couture
    Model:Carolyn Murphy
    Photographer: Steven Meisel
    Fashion Editor: Grace Coddington

    This editorial is obviously full of the seasons best Couture, It takes place in a beautiful restaraunt and Carolyn has on some of the most beautiful glamorous gowns,
    but there are also studio shots with her in very fantastical creations. I really liked this one!^_^


    Night Light
    Model:
    Photographer: Peter Lindbergh
    Fashion Editor: Grace Coddington

    Some girl running around in a forest with elegant gowns, nothing new.
    Clothing is quite minimal, but still beautiful. No idea who she is but she's fabulous!


    Peak Performance
    Model: Carolyn Murphy
    Photographer: Michael Thompson
    Fashion Editor: Paul Cavaco

    This editorial makes me wnat to get into any sport that requires the athletic gear that was photographed,
    it's a studio edit, but I really liked this!:p


    Great Lengths
    Model: Angela Lindvall
    Photographer: Carter Smith
    Fashion Editor: Paul Cavaco

    Angela Lindvall looking very natural in a farm setting, with a lot of comfort clothing,
    makes me want to take a break from the city and go to a farm:lol:
    Overall the editorials are mediocre, but some inspiring.

    ^^ I think because she created her own magazine in a collaboration with the rival publisher (Hearst!) two years later, and her magazine has a strong base of reader's that is almost as high as Vogue's. :ninja: All of which of course made her competition.

    Thanks for the review, it is indeed nice to see Paul everywhere in this issue, and Smith/Thompson shooting for it.I love how when you look back 10 years ago at Vogue cover's, you see what was going on at the time, they had The Spice Girls & Hilary Clinton on the cover in that year aswell. :lol: You can also see how more and more celebs started taking over the covers, although that year still has plenty of model's.

    This issue has Iconic conotation aswell, since she was the first famous black woman to grace the cover.There were just models before her, of course.

    I was just wondering about this issue earlier today, after I saw a preview of the cover in Anna Wintour's thread. I like it, along with the spread.

    Thank you, XavierRaphael! :flower:

    I wasn't looking for it, but I just stumbled upon a really great quality scan of the cover for anybody interested.
