TI woke up this morning to this contribution by new member "Max". This archival find was so genius I almost cried. Thank you Max!

The year: 1988. The photographer: Peter Lindbergh. The magazine: Italian Vogue – “Maschile” March 1988 Editorial – Featuring models Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Lynn Koester and Talisa Soto in SHORT BLACK BOY CUT hairstyles or wigs. This is a significant editorial in fashion history because it serves as inspiration for Linda Evangelista to cut her hair a few months later into the “Linda” style that eventually propelled into her SUPERMODEL ICONIC status. It also was key in showing these models in a “gender-bending” non glam manner.
And this shift is still being felt to this day
