I had yet another parcel of goodies delivered a few days ago, full of back issues of American Vogue. Inside the box was a couple of issues with Sandra Bullock on the front. I couldn't help but notice how fantastic she photographed and how rare it is to see her on a magazine cover.
For our flashback series this week, we are taking a look back atVogue's October 2006 issue with the American actress on the front. Bullock is photographed by Steven Meisel wearing a black jacquard bustle-back gown by Carolina Herrera, styled by Tonne Goodman.
As one can expect from an October issue from 2006, the 436-page issue is full of fabulous content. Steven Meisel photographed another story for the issue with models Karolina Kurkova and Hilary Rhoda (we really are deprived of Meisel in American Vogue nowadays). Mario Testino shot an editorial with Gisele Bundchen and actor Eric Bana in which Gisele dons a range of eveningwear from J. Mendal, Narciso Rodriguez, Prada and Stella McCartney.
However, even stories with wonderful models cannot distract my attention from Sandra Bullock's cover story. The actress appears in a very elegant and sophisticated-looking feature wearing glamorous gowns and diamonds where she successfully projects the vision of a true Hollywood actress.
Stay tuned for next weeks flashback and in the meantime, check out the US Vogue October 2006 thread here.
