For her first appearance in American Vogue, Anjelica Huston flew to rural Ireland with Richard Avedon and fashion editor Polly Mellen. Mellen opted to use several Vogue Patterns on the shoot.
Mellen’s selections include designs by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin, all made up in leather, suede, and chamois. (Hats by Jackie Rogers and Ruza Creations; bags, Louis Vuitton and Karavan. Hair by Ara Gallant.)
Do you remember Grace Coddington’s Amish editorial? From late summer, 1993, “The Great Plain” looks forward to Schitt’s Creek and today’s back-to-the-land trend. It also features two Vogue Sport dress patterns.
The Vogue team travelled to rural Pennsylvania for the shoot. In the opening spread and barnyard square-dancing sequence, Christy Turlington wears simple dresses, made up in cotton broadcloth from Sutter Textiles.
