Throwback: The Most Iconic Magazine Covers Of All Time

Believe it or not the first issue of Vogue was published all the way back in 1892, and the first Harper’s Bazaar before that in 1867!  Since then, there have been tons of famous covers from equally famous magazines, with some very famous people. In case you don’t know or remember them, here they are. They’re all very ~iconic~.




Vogue 1950

The oldest cover on the list is model Jean Patchett shot by Irving Penn for American Vogue. So good it doesn’t even look real.



LIFE Magazine 1952

This was Marilyn’s first of many covers for LIFE magazine, and remains one of the most collectable covers in their history. Interesting fact: they even featured her on covers after she died.



Vogue 1964

Audrey Hepburn graced the cover of Vogue USA in 1964.  The cover is amazing, but check out the other photos of her featured in Vogue and be even more amazed.



Vogue 1967

Twiggy had over ten magazine covers in 1967, but the July issue of Vogue was definitely one to remember.



Vogue 1990

Peter Lindbergh shot this cover of Vogue for January 1990.  All of the infamous 90s supermodels in one photo? Made for quite the cover.



The Face 1990

This was the debatably politically incorrect cover that launched the wonderful career of Kate Moss. Need I say more?



Vanity Fair 1991

This cover kind of gives me the creeps, but at least it was memorable! It spawned a slew of covers imitating it in the future… anyone remember the most recent pregnant Jessica Simpson cover?



Harper’s Bazaar 1992

Oh lala, Linda Evangelista on the cover of Haper’s Bazzar’s September issue1992 shot by Patrick Demarchelier.



Interview Magazine 1994

Leo snags the spot for my male pick of iconic covers.  Who could resist that face?



George Magazine 1995

George wasn’t technically a fashion magazine, but it’s very first issue in 1995 made quite the impression by starring supermodel Cindy Crawford dressed up as George Washington.



Vogue 1997

After Princess Diana died in 1997, Vogue paid tribute and dedicated their cover to her with this simple number.
