Top 10 (+1) | Dolly Girls

With all of our talk of Dolly magazine lately many of you have dropped us a line to tell us what they loved the most about the mag. Dolly Doctor rates pretty high, because where else were we going to get the inside scoop on everything puberty (?), but it's the girls who graced the covers and pages that most of us remember the most, and everyone had a favourite.

Spotlight On | Dolly Magazine Covergirl Competition ('80s)

Spotlight On | Dolly Magazine Covergirl Competition ('80s)

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...

1-Minute Fashion Fix | Dolly March 1994

1-Minute Fashion Fix | Dolly March 1994

Today's 1-Minute Fashion Fix features one of the Dolly girl all-stars. In the '80s and '90s there was a few select girls who featured time and time again, and Angelique Bennett was one of them.

This is a great spread from 1994 and I really think the clothes featured here still hold up today - more than two decades later. With styling by Carlotta Moye this is an all-round vintage Dolly classic...

Time Capsule | October 1991

Time Capsule | October 1991

I'm not sure why but I think 1991 would have to be my favourite year of the '90s. For those of you playing at home my favourite '80s year is 1987. Like I said, I'm not sure why. Some things don't need rhyme or reason.

Since the Time Capsule we dug up this month is from October 1991 I was always going to get a bit excited for it...

'90s Fashion Fix | White (Part 2)

'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.

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