Diana Ross re-enacts Aquarius for LOOK magazine, 1969. Scanned & restored a bit by me.
Diana Ross. I’ve written about her here before, but that could never satiate the obsession. From karaoke nights at Shakey’s pizza singing “Stop In The Name Of Love” long before I knew what a broken heart was, to continually being stopped by old men in the street who point out the resemblance – Diana Ross has been a huge influence on my life & style. I connected with her story long before I realized we looked alike and strive to break the kinds of social, racial and fashion boundaries that Diana did.
Anyway… these scans. I haven’t been finding as much of my usual inspiration in current glossies, but found myself ordering some vintage mags on ebay. These are from 1969 issues of the long defunct LOOK magazine. It’s not really a fashion mag, but as you can see there are some beautiful visuals (and the stories are great, too). I’d never seen these images of Diana Ross, so I’m living for them right now.
There were also great shots of Mia Farrow (or Tavi, you be the judge), hilarious vintage cigarette ads and a story about (gasp!) co-ed dorms. See below.

I would appreciate a credit should you re-blog any of these, thank you!
