For those of you that have watched the September Issue, you may remember a scene when Anna Wintour was describing her first ever cover as editor of American Vogue from 1988. She had put Israeli model Michaela Bercu on the cover wearing jeans. The casual ensemble and style of photography raised eyebrows at the top at Conde Nast and Anna Wintour was instantly seen as the woman that would bring Vogue into a new era.
Now, over two decades later, Vogue is celebrating the moment after discovering a dead ringer for model Michaela Bercu. Gigi Hadid, a model who seems to show no signs of stopping in her rise to the top, has been photographed to showcase this resemblance and it’s truly uncanny. She holds a copy of the original issue in her hand as she is shot in street style fashion in New York. While Gigi is not wearing the $10,000 Lacroix Sweatshirt from the original shoot in 1988, she is wearing a similar style and truly you’d be hard pressed to tell the two apart.
Truly a sensational image and a wonderful step back in fashion history.
