The Beauty of Retrospect: Leap Day Post!

And here they are, four gorgeous women who have been featured on my blog repeatedly and are here once again, together: from left, Rosie Vela, Patti Hansen, Rene Russo (below) and Beverly Johnson.

If this lineup looks vaguely familiar, that's because I earlier posted a picture of the same models (posing in the same order) that was taken years after this one.  This photo is from an editorial in the June 1978 issue of the American edition of Vogue, when all four women were at the peak of their modeling careers; the previous photo was an ad from Revlon's "Unforgettable Women" campaign of the 1980s.  By the eighties, Rosie Vela had become a singer and Rene Russo had become an actress; Patti Hansen and Beverly Johnson were still at their modeling peaks. :-)

I posted the 1980s ad back in 2008 . . . to be precise, on February 29, 2008.  Some things never change around here. :-)

I come in like a lion for March with a brand-new A-Z round of fresh subjects.
