May 1990 Fashion Etc.: Mixed Prints, Sweepstakes & Very Discolored Colors

Start listening

We still have a little left to say about Johnny Depp — he is our cover boy, after all — but then we get into the fashion (etc.) of the May 1990 issue. The photos for a swimsuit story starring Lou Rawls’s model daughter Louann all come out looking brown. Editorial on mixing prints gets mixed reviews. And the blue-green beauty story raises a lot more questions than it answers. We also cover Alice bands, harsh acne treatments, sunscreen, suntan oil, the slow death of Sassy Club, and much more! Put on your Artcarved class ring and get into it!
