Vogue UK: past December covers of questionable taste

Vogue UK: past December covers of questionable taste

When i saw this cover of the latest December issue of Vogue UK, I was impressed by how over the top and verging on cheesy it was.

So I thought it might be fun to check out December covers from the past. Are they always this over the top? No, but here are some real doozies…

I see. Apparently Vogue thought it totally okay to put Liz Hurley in a barely there mini dress with one boob popping out, as long as they de-sexified the situation by sticking her exposed chocha in a very gay man’s face. Fair enough.

Wow. I hope that whoever thought of slapping that frosted mullet wig on Christie Turlington is now doing something else for a living. Like plumbing.

I think they should’ve taken this at least one step further and put this cover photo on the vogue covers on her dress. META.

Twiggy must’ve been barely 25 when this photo was taken, but with all that Studio 54 Whore makeup, she looks almost the same as she does now.

Although amittedly kind of awesome with its artsy shit-eating grin, this photo seems like a very odd choice for any cover. Nevermind a December issue, which one would expect to be somewhat sentimental and/or glamorous… and not featuring some hippie dressed as a macaw.

  • you’re right. that last one is definitely like… a spring cover. people aren’t in that mode in december.

  • Haha, even Vogue can be awesomely kitschy! Merry Christmas, Amber and Eve!

  • Merry Christmas!

    Those are some weird covers!

    I rather liked that last cover. And this year’s November cover with Sophie Dahl was much better than the December one, though the cover Sienna did for them in December 2004 was rather nice.

  • Wow, I remember getting that 2002 issue and not even realizing how risque it was. And corny!

    The ’70s ones are kind of nice though. All that pastel makeup. I like it.

    I think that Christy Turlington is wearing a body beaded body suit by Versace that is covered in my book review a few posts down.

  • Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing every thing I’ve worked tough on. Any recommendations?

  • I am impressed, I have got to confess. Seldom should i come across a website that’s the two evenly educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve strike the nail in the mind. The issue is anything not sufficient women and men are talking smartly about. Now i am very happy I came across this in my look for some thing concerning this.

  • Pardon me, has anyone heard about that electrical contractor on Chambers by the name of New York Electrician, 94 Chambers St, New York, NY 10007 (646) 415-6723
