60's Vogue

These covers are from Vogue UK in the 60's. I love vintage covers and it is interesting to note how much has changed in 50 years. Close-up shots were the order of the day, the cover girl seems to be more mature and more intense make-up was used. Always bearing in mind that Photoshop never existed.…
