Included in this post are two of the most important in fashion, and in art for that matter if you equate fashion and art the way I do, namely Andy Warhol, who photographed these images, and Diana Vreeland, who is in the last image. The fact that these two lights went out right before the 90s might be why there is so precious little about that decade worth remembering (Vogue Italia excepted of course). The story is by André Leon-Talley.
Being no expert on the Warhol crowd, I can only note that Kim Alexis looks out of place in this crowd. Nonetheless, she graced nearly every page of this editorial.
