What keeps me awake at night

The other night I lay in bed thinking of an issue of Vogue from 1994.

Yes, it’s sad that I know what year, but remember, I used to collect magazines for fun, saving collector issues like other more people saved stamps.

I don’t own those magazines anymore, and sometimes I wish I did, like at 2am when I’m thinking of this issue of Vogue.


Yep. The Kidman, Luhrmann, CM issue.

I remember poring over issue with my old skool friends, when we all lived in Balaclava, and Carlisle Street in Melbourne, didn’t have a cafe in every second shop.


Nicole being noir. That’s Tom in the background.


I do remember Nicole crowing about how she ‘designed’ this dress in the interview. Bless. A bit like when Katie Holmes started her own fashion label. You modify one Butterick’s pattern and suddenly everyone’s a fashion designer.

Nicole doin’ some dancin’.


Having a Shirley MacLaine/Ann Margaret moment.


Is it just me, or does Nicole look like Willy Wonka in the photo below?

This photo is actually so beautiful, it hurts. All bohemian and tragic. A little John William Waterhouse with a touch of Ophelia, non?

So yeah, this is what keeps me up at night. Going over the issues past, magazines that is, not personal.

Do you remember this issue? I know my old skool friends, Rachael and Jonah do.

Happy Saturday.
