Apologies for my long absence from this blog. I wonder sometimes if anyone still reads this thing or blogs in general. Well, little old blogs like mine anyway that are never updated. So perhaps not. Anyhow, I’ve returned with another ode to my love for vintage Victoria magazine! I thought maybe I will do this every month and feature that month’s issue from a different year. So, since we are in August, this is the August 1991 issue featuring the most lovely editorial “A Toast to the Spirit of Katharine Hepburn”…
This beautiful story is photographed by Tom Hooper and features actual antique clothing in the photographs. I love that in so many of Victoria’s editorials they use authentic vintage clothing to tell a tale. Isn’t the Edwardian chemise and petticoat featured in these photos just lovely?
There are so many more photos in this editorial including Katharine Hepburn’s recollections from filming The African Queen with Humphrey Bogart. But you’ll just have to go find yourself this issue to see all the beautiful imagery! This August vintage issue of Victoria Magazine also has other delightful stories about sisters who started a flower farm, a feature on Louis Vuitton luggage and a bit of the history behind them, and a very sweet story (and beautiful photos!) of gardens shared by friends.
Oh, vintage Victoria…you never fail to make my heart go all a flutter. You’re so wonderful!
