Fashion Flashback

1993: Kate Moss
 1st UK VOGUE cover 

The year 1993 and one of the most iconic VOGUE magazines, covered by Kate Moss goes on sale in March. Shot by Corinne Day and hair styled by James Brown (also from Croydon), it was to become a career defining highlight after she covered The Face (axed in May 2004) in 1990, aged just 16. Waif was about to take over. 

After being shot by Day in the 1990s, a model was born and Moss has now been on the cover of an astonishing number of fashion publications and UK Vogue in particular, a massive 30 times.

You could sell anything fast when that waif face of hers is on it.

Other news from 1993:
  • Audrey Hepburn won an Emmy award for Gardens of the World with Audrey Hepburn
  • Miuccia Prada launched a menswear line and offshoot line Miu Miu.
  • Girl's magazine Shout first went on sale, as well as Wired.
  • Hocus Pocus, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and the wonderful Bette Midler (see her here on The Graham Norton Show- absolutely hilarious incident beginning 1.43 minutes in- a must see!)
