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.

1-Minute Fashion Fix | Dolly February 1991

1-Minute Fashion Fix | Dolly February 1991

Who knew grey could look so dang cute. A bit confusing as to why the lovely Madison would step out onto the street in her undergarments, but groove to your own tune I say! And good on Dolly Magazine for making the last picture of this spread a 'leaping through the air' shot - an absolute classic Dolly move/pose...

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

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.

'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...
