Who needs supermodels?

This was long before supermodels and fashion photographers were the symbiosis of fashion magazines. This wonderful illustration is from French designer Madeleine de Rauch from 1949.

Spiegel Online has a wonderful article about 100 years of fashion illustration in magazines with a lot more of these pictures from various designers. It even contains a few early Vogue pictures from 1910 - long before Prada and the devil, impersonated by Anna Wintour.
