Stella Tennant turns 50 today. In a Bauhaus-inspired, mid-’90s editorial, the British supermodel wears a minimalist trench coat made from a Vogue pattern.

Tennant’s trench is view C of Vogue 9345, made up in cotton twill from B&J Fabrics and, as always, “edited by Vogue.”

Today is John Galliano’s 60th birthday. To celebrate, here’s Angela Lindvall in a Givenchy dress, made from a Vogue pattern and photographed by the great Paolo Roversi.

I’ve featured Galliano’s work on this blog many times, starting with the Empress Josephine-inspired, couture version of V1978 below.
