Looking at old vintage Vogue covers I really wish I had been alive during these periods. The simplistic covers nowadays wouldn't fly with the fashion industry which is why it really surprises me that these had such an impact in their time. The women on the covers seem so elegant and well dressed, unlike todays covers which show the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Cheryl Cole who just don't have the same elegance.
What else amazes me is the covers that are completely designed with shapes, drawings and graphics, rather than the typical photographed, photoshopped image we see today. I think Vogue should try and do this type of thing again in the future and bring back a bit of vintage fashion.
