Spotlight On | Dolly Magazine Covergirl Competition ('90s)

We've had quite a few requests for a look back at the Dolly Magazine Covergirl Competition. It's crazy that there's so very little coverage of these comps online, given that so many of us girls, back in the day, poured over the finalists with our friends at school, and declared our favourites while lounging around on each others bedroom floors. So we've put together as much as we could find in the Double Denim Days archives. There's a few gaps from issues we haven't found yet, so - in the spirit of a Dolly-loving community - we'd love to hear from anyone who has any additional material that can help us complete the picture!

We've split this article into two installments - '80s and '90s. The competition became much more of a big deal in the '90s, and the styling got a whole lot better too! How lucky were those few girls who were chosen as finalists, and the even fewer who became a bona fide Dolly cover girl!?!

A little side note: it's taken literally hours upon hours upon hours of searching and scanning to put these articles together, so if you're sharing them we'd love for you to help spread the Double Denim Days word at the same time by linking directly to us and giving us a shout-out. You'll be helping to grow our little double denim community we've got going on here, and will be muchas gracias!
