I loved fashion magazines at the time too, but Interview, with it's larger pages and fashion ads just cast me into another world. I used to love going through my magazines and collecting my favorite pages. We lived in a Victorian house at the time and I covered one wall in my "cave" with fashion.
I really miss this wall and sometimes find myself wishing I could recreate it and go back to that wonderful spot in my head.
It was about this same time that I looked into modeling. It was just after high school that I was "discovered" and began my own career in modeling. Unfortunately I couldn't handle the pressure and I became anorexic and was hospitalized with pneumonia right about the same time I was to fly to Japan to do magazine covers and really take off with my career. I had an agent in New York ready for me and was following my dream. Oh well. I never got back into it the same, but I sure do like to visit that place every now and then. Interview magazine always takes me back.
I have always wanted a full set of Louis Vuitton luggage and a huge trunk. Oh how cool would that be!
Kate Moss has not only made a name for her skinny little self, but she has gone way beyond most models years with age. I always loved Christy Turnlington and Paulina Porizkova back in the day and my favorite was Linda Evangelista.
This picture reminds me of a show I used to watch called "Style" with Elsa Clinch. I LOVED that show and staying up on the latest designers. When I started to model, I loved doing runway and would simply imitate the way I saw the models walking on that show with loads of attitude.
I still love the society pages to this day. Back then I always wanted to be seen in them. This picture reminds me of a picture that I did...
There were two shots left, and the photographer I was working with always wanted a picture like this to hang over his mantle. We got the shot, luckily, because in the last frame I was starting to laugh.
My oldest just informed me that "That doesn't look anything like you Mama, and neither does that one, or that one, or that one". Well, I don't agree. Add 40 pounds and 15 years and it would look just like me, thank you very much!
I loved the sun glasses and scarf in this shot.
I was approached by a vegetarian after this shoot (nothing against vegetarians) who started to yell at me about my bustier. She caused a huge scene and it really freaked me out.
Oh to reminisce about my younger years, so carefree and exciting. Actually, they were full of many insecurities and I had a lot of growing up to do. I love my life now, am much happier, and would never go back in age. I like it where I am.
It is fun to remember the times I have had though, and when I pick up this magazine it always takes me back. I hope you enjoyed my flash back and feel free to giggle at my pics if you like.
