This ’07 Vogue UK editorial featuring Gemma Ward backpacking through India in clashing prints, layered hats, track pants and pom pom scarves is so crazy that it’s kind of brilliant. Hey, at least she’s ready for any adventure that comes her way.

If you had any doubt that Claudia Schiffer is the hottest woman in the universe, just look to this ’92 French Elle shoot featuring the supermodel frolicking on the beach in sultry little black dresses that are cut, bound and laced to perfection. Now, to hunt down that strapped Gaultier dress…

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 (Almost) Vintage: House Of Style
Back in 1989, hair was higher than ever, hip hop was taking over the scene, and supermodels ruled the world. MTV hired Cindy Crawford to host “House of Style“…and the rest is history. We can’t even begin to explain our obsession with the raddest show that ever was, but it could have something to do with Salt-n-Pepa’s epic runway moment, Naomi applying zit cream, shopping with the Spice Girls, and hitting the gym with Gwen Stefani. Not to mention, the series offered insightful interviews with some of the most iconic musicians, models, and designers ever. The show spanned the decade, giving us a backstage pass to fashion in all its forms and in case you haven’t heard, THEY’RE BRINGIN’ IT BACK! Until then, we’ve rounded up some of the best moments from their ’90s archives.

We’re ready to pack our bags and head to Havana after coming across Steven Meisel’s steamy 1989 Vogue Italia editorial featuring one of our ultimate ’90s icons, Linda Evangelista. Filled with saturated sequins, golden accessories, and one tall (dark and handsome) dude, this spread embodies everything that makes summer so damn hot.
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 (Almost) Vintage: Cindy Crawford: The Swimsuit Edition
We’ve always had a major weakness (re: sick obsession) for the otherworldly supermodels that ruled the ’90s. While it’s impossible for us to ever pick a favorite, let’s just say that we could definitely kill a few hours scrolling through editorials of Cindy Crawford…which may or may not have just happened. Her all-American looks and perfectly toned limbs are all the inspiration we need to get our butts to the gym…or at least search for her old workout videos on eBay.
