Well, it’s kinda cheating a LOT to say this is the 100th year of Vanity Fair. Condé Nast began his empire (there was a man before there was a “Publications”) by purchasing the men’s fashion magazine Dress in 1913. He renamed it Dress and Vanity Fair and published four issues in 1913. It continued to thrive into the twenties but it became a casualty of the Great Depression and it was announced that Vanity Fair would be folded into Vogue (circulation 156,000) as of the March 1936 issue. So, it wasn’t published for almost half of that 100 years. I worked there, not a HUNDRED years ago but it almost seems like that now, first under Leo Lerman and then a “just-off-the-boat” Tina Brown. I left in ’85 and went back almost a decade later to design the very first Hollywood Issue and several other special issues too. I’ve been a faithful reader all along and as I always say, it’s THE best magazine in the world. Period. So, why not give them this one? HAPPY 100th ANNIVERSARY, VF!
