'90s Fashion Fix | White (Part 2)

It's Part 2 of our White Fashion Fix special, and this week we're looking at some great '90s editorials. Highlights for me from this bunch are the Australian magazines. There's a smokin' Cosmopolitan spread with Alison Brahe, a spread from the lesser-known Looks magazine featuring a model who I am 90% sure is a very young Sophie Falkiner^, and '90s fashion export Toneya Bird in a tropical whites editorial.

Dolly magazine was something of a bible for teenage girls in Australia, and we all looked forward to the Covergirl Competition every year. Why? Buggers me. We just did. Rebecca Kelly was the winner of the 1991 Covergirl competition, and we have the white-themed feature that marked the end of her 12 month reign.

On the international front, there's a kick-ass Vogue (UK) editorial with Christy Turlington, a couple of Elle (US) spreads with supermodels Claudia Schiffer & Yasmeen Ghauri, and a whole bunch of fashion heavyweights in a Glamour (US) magazine feature.

But wait! There's more! No! Let's not wait... let's get started...

^ if anyone can confirm the Sophie Falkiner ID I'd be muchos appreciados
