120 Years of Vogue

I don’t believe in fashion.

I believe in costume.

Life is too short to be same person every day.

Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Here’s a fashion editorial style shoot inspired by Vogue, known for arresting images that make eyes stop and hearts thrill to desires.   The book commemorating its 120th anniversary, “The Editor’s Eye,” is a tribute to eight remarkable women who determined the faces that became icons of various eras and the direction of fashion’s forward movement through their reign as Vogue editors.  These women have turned quirky performers like Barbra Streisand and Cher into style stars, the waifish Twiggy as a celebrity, Patti Hansen into the golden goddess next door.  They created the rise of supermodels Cindy, Naomi, Linda, Christy, marrying art and imagination on glossy pages with productions resembling the scale and ambition of films in recent years.

The challenges of bringing together a variety of talents and personalities are all worth magical moments of collaboration that produce unforgettable images transcending generations.

    I have to admit, I no nothing about Vogue but I always enjoy the photos of beautiful Goddesses in their costumes, here. This week I especially like the one of the Goddess with her dress swirling and her leg showing with the piano and that “grand” ceiling in the background. Hopefully there will be many generations here at Powerful Goddess Photography as well.
