Vogue - October 1961

My sister surprised me with a 'just because' gift of a 1961 issue of Vogue magazine (along with their 100th Anniversary Issue but that's for another post) and I am just smitten with the images and adverts.

I've included just a few of the pages here but the magazine is full of amazing clothes that I would love to wear now (like the coat in the third photograph) and editorial and ads that reveal a lot about the times. The beauty ads have a lot more verbiage than they do now but Revlon and Max Factor were just as prominent in 1961 as they are now. And, even back then, CHANEL was on the right hand page.  Maybe things don't change as much as we think they do...
