On My Mind

Scottish Independence

Linda Evangelista Although I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for the results of the Scottish referendum vote, I’ll admit that I’m far more interested in whether Great Britain will remain a member of the European Union. If England withdraws its membership, which city will replace London as the U.S.’s EU portal? Makes Neiman Marcus’ purchase of Munich based feel prescient…

On a side note, I produced the story above by Arthur Elgort for Vogue.

  • By far one of the most iconic and inspirational editorials in my memory cache. It was the first Vogue I ever bought, introducing me to fantasy and more importantly to the incomparable Linda Evangelista. Amazing!

  • I remember that shot too. Love the tartan…and the attitude. In Canada we’re watching the Scottish referendum with great interest…and not just because of the Scottish roots of so many Canadians. Almost twenty years ago we had our own referendum. Would Quebec separate or not? I remember the bus loads of people from outside Quebec who attended “No” rallies in Montreal, carrying placards with the slogan “My Canada includes Quebec!” Interesting times.

  • As an American living in Edinburgh with my Scottish husband, I can tell you first hand that we are all on the edges of our seats here. The nationalists are trying to make it an are you for Scotland or for England event, which is frightening….

  • One of my absolute all time favorite Vogue spreads. Ever. Loved that one, as I truly would trade my US passport for a UK (Scots) one in a heartbeat. I’ve been wrapped up in Scottish cashmere these past few chilly days sipping a Stormy Scot ( and waiting for the drama to unfold. Slainte!

  • Ah I remember this too. Back in the days when that thick slab of US Vogue arriving in our office (at Hearst UK) was a huge EVENT!

  • One of my absolute al time favorites!!!!!

  • Count me in as one who tore the pages of this editorial featuring tartans–Linda E is truly iconic. That adjective is tossed around casually a lot these days to people who’s names we now can’t remember. Vogue has tried relentlessly to convince us that the First Lady was a fashion icon . . . a fine woman, but not a fashion icon. T he photo above explains everything. So very chic–congratulations!

  • I loved that story! That was the best time to read Vogue.
