The Face 10th Birthday Issue

Hello there, yes it’s been a while. I have been ill and couldn’t find anything that inspired me. So yesterday as I drank out of my funny tash mug (below), (which any tea or coffee lover should invest in right now. By them here for Peter Ibruegger) i managed to find some perfect blogging material.

and on the other side

So yeh, I was drinking my tea and reading some old editions of The Face magazine which I have inherited from my dear dad and had to share some of my findings. The following images are scanned from the 10th Birthday issue June 1990, hopefully you can read the text in the clippings, it’s work the eye strain!

Andrea Oliver shaking her thang! Neneh Cherry in all her loveliness!! Here’s some more

Jean Paul Gaultier’s design sketches and some insight into that amazing corset.

Lady Gaga who? Madge at her best (below) and far cry from those mingin’ valour trackies she seems to enjoy wearing so much(above)!!

Weird to see so many cigarette advertising campaigns throughout the magazine.

Later this week I will post some images from the July 1990 issue including “The Third Summer of Love”, the iconic first shoot of an innocent looking Kate Moss aged 15 shot by Corinne Day and also an article about something called a CD walkman!!
