This is fun fabulous ’80s hair by the legendary John Sahag from a “Star Appeal” editorial in American Vogue featuring SuperModel Cindy Crawford wearing hairpieces placed for art – under a hat! (Sahag always wanted to “score” so hats and makeup stories didn’t faze him! He just came up with amazing ideas, like this.)   This was the first of the 4 page editorial photographed by Irvin Penn for “The Color Report” with makeup by Kevyn Aucoin, other pages featured more of Cindy, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington.

Iconic Fashion photo by Helmut Newton for American Vogue, 1974.  Two girls dancing in Maui, Hawaii.  I always loved this photo.  Everything about it.  Divine perfection.

“Fashion pictures rarely have any logic. Each one is a moment without a beginning or an end,” said Helmut Newton.  He warns: “You mustn’t take my pictures too seriously. Don’t look for a message, because there isn’t one.”   More from Helmut Newton’s 1984  provocative thriller of a book, Women Without Men, click
