Vogue - the most influential fashion magazine
The word Vogue - "style" - manifests in the magazine of the same name. There isn't a person alive who doesn't know it. Teenagers, women, men. It has been the bible of fashion, design, and life suckers for nearly 130 times.
Indeed though its focus is fashion, Vogue brings fresh takes on intriguing motifs similar as design, armature, celebrities, trades and culture, trip, fun, and a regular cure of horoscopes. In its early days, it set its sights on New York's nobility. Vogue would publish papers about their habits, rest conditioning, social gatherings, favorite spots, and the apparel they would wear.
All the way to supermodels
Since 1988, it has without a doubt been the stylish fashion magazine available on the transnational request. It runs podcasts, as well as a fashion encyclopedia called Voguepedia, with a bountiful library of former issues. Last but not least, it was the alleviation for a best- dealing book and its posterior movie adaption, The Devil Wears Prada, which entered several Oscar nominations. Who doesn't know this now fifteen-years-old movie with the excellent performances by Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway? Until the 60s, Vogue would display substance and extravagance through elegant, smiling women. After Twiggy burst on the scene, the magazine's runners were adorned with skinny, rather skimpily dressed models or actresses. Later still came the 90s, the golden times of fashion marked by freedom and liberty. This decade was represented by ten supermodels - Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatiana Patitz, Christy Turlington, Helena Christensen, Victoria's Secret Angel, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Claudia Schiffer, British Kate Moss, and Cindy Crawford. The styles and trends of the 90s were mandated by these beautiful women. The Czech top model, Eva Herzigová, who was also the face of Vogue, could be included among them as well. She's now an editor-at-large of the Czechoslovak edition of Vogue.
The most wanted out of the notorious five
The most notorious black model, Naomi Elaine Campbell (51), was veritably open and oral about racism in the fashion industry. She was the first black woman to appear on the frontal runner of British Vogue since 1966. She was also the first on the frontal runner of the French edition. This was in part thanks to the fashion developer, Yv St. Laurent, who hovered to pull his announcements from the magazine if Vogue continued to refuse to put black models on its frontal runners. A time later, Campbell appeared on the front runner of the September issue of the American Vogue, extensively considered the most influential edition. At the time, she was formerly considered one of the supermodel elite alongside Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, and Cynthia Crawford. She continued to appear in Vogue and works in modeling to this day.
Beast rights activist
Christy Nicole Turlington Burns (52) together with Cindy Crawford, supported the PETA crusade "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" in 1993 with their raw prints. In 1996, alongside other supermodels (Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Elle Macpherson, and Claudia Schiffer), she faced the opening of the Fashion Cafe in New York, which is no longer open. As of October 2014, Christy Turlington is the Apple Watch brand minister.
Karl Lagerfeld now helps out children
Claudia Maria Schiffer (51), was a regular on fashion magazine frontal runners, including Vogue. She was first featured on the frontal runner in 1989, in the British edition. In the coming times, she'd go on to appear on over 1000 frontal runners of fashion magazines each across the world. She left the fashion assistant position in 2002. At the moment, she works with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), where she's a goodwill minister.
Supermodel turned developer
Cynthia Ann "Cindy" Crawford (55) is the fifth on our list of the supermodel top five. She was featured on the frontal runners of fashion magazines, including Vogue, further than 500 times. Crawford took part in advertising juggernauts of brands similar to Gianni Versace, Escada, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, or Calvin Klein. After leaving the catwalk in 2000, she started an incense line under her own name. Three times later, alongside French cosmetics expert, Jean Louis Sebagh, she continued with a cosmetics line labeled "Meaningful Beauty". In 2009, she introduced her own line of shoes in cooperation with the German shoe manufacturer, Deichmann, under the brand Cindy Crawford Collection by 5th Avenue. She was again featured on the frontal runner of Mexican Vogue in May 2011. In September 2017, together with Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, and Carla Bruni, she appeared at a fashion show devoted to the memory of the late developer, Gianni Versace.
The fashion bible continues
The life of this fashion bible continues on. moment's Vogue magazine touches on a wide diapason of social life issues, thanks in part to the wide reach of social media. There are indeed editions for the youthful. Vogue addresses transnational issues, guarantors promising systems, takes part in charity, and doesn't wince down indeed from the occasional support of political juggernauts.
Czechoslovak edition for four years and counting
How did this fashion bible, read by millions every month, come to be where it's now? The magazine was established in 1892 by Arthur Baldwin as a daily. When it was acquired by the American publishing house, Condé Nast, the periodicity changed tobi-weekly. Later, it set up an anthology base in Spain, Great Britain, and France. Its worldwide fame was first attained by the Italian edition, Vogue Italia. Currently, the yearly journal has 26 transnational editions – including the Czechoslovak one. Its editor-in-chief is Andrea Běhounková. The first Czech issue was published on August 17, 2018, with crucial motifs being love and freedom, talking also about the commencement of Czechoslovakia. The frontal runner features a print of Katarína Kurková, her back to the camera. Her ash-colored hair and the letter V are an homage to the first lady, Olga Havlová.
