Vintage Elle Magazines

Although I recycled all of my Elle Magazines I still hang on to my vintage ones. I have the #7 issue from 1940 and the #455 from 1954. It's amazing to see the evolution that the covers have gone through throughout the years. I am still searching for the first 10 issues but its a tricky search. I still have not mastered eBay.

The #7 issue is only the cover, the #455 issue is a full issue. I will take photos one day to show you the inside of it. Its truly amazing, most of the pages are in black and white and there is an editorial spread on either Christian Dior, Oscar or Valentino (I can't remember which one) all in pastel colors. in 1954 the cost of Elle Magazine was only $0.50.
