Glamour Magazine’s 70th Anniversary Issue is surely a royal one! Not necessarily on the fashion-extreme side of things, Glamour is not that kind of magazine, but more on the Vanity Fair-side of publishing.
One of the subjects revolving around this anniversary is American Icons. Seven decades of courageous, boundaries-crashing women (from TV series characters to the First Lady) impersonated by glamorous Hollywood-ers and more (so much more!): Alicia Keys is Michelle Obama, the First Lady.(don’t miss the rest of the pictures right after the jump!)
Hayden Panettiere (the Heroes cheerleader sensation) is Amelia Earhart (the first female transatlantic aviator tragically disappeared in 1937).
Chanel Iman is Althea Gibson (at 23 years old, in 1950, she became the first African American to breaktrough in an U.S tennis championship; seven years later she became the first African American to win the Wimbledon).
America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) is Dolores Huerta (United Farm Workers of America cofounder, with César Chávez, 1975). Lindsay Lohan is Madonna (from her Like A Virgin time).
Paula Patton (recently saw in Mirrors) is Billie Holiday (one of the first African American singers to have performed with an all-white orchestra, regardless of her Summertime – the living is easy song, Bilie had quite a struggle in her life, fighting with abuses, racism, illegal substances addictions but oh, what a voice she had!)
Emma Roberts (Eric Robert’s daughter, among others starring in Nancy Drew) is Audrey Hepburn, the all-time style icon. Emma Stone (Superbad, The House Bunny) is Carrie Bradshaw (SATC).
Odette Yustman (Cloverfield, October Road), Spencer Grammer (Greek), Rumer Willis (daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, The House Bunny) are the Women of Woodstock.
Alexis Bledel (one of the Gilmore Girls) is Rosie the Riveter (“We Can Do It!” 1942 campaign biceps girl calling out to the American women to replace the men who were enrolled in the WW II).
Camilla Belle (Rip Girls) is Mary Tyler Moore (the independent Mary Richards character from The Mary Tyler Moore TV show, 1970 who was more focused on the good side of life and work more than on husband hunting).
Elisha Cuthbert (24) is Brandi Chastain (she scored the decisive penalty kick in the first World Cup soccer finale against China, 1999).
Which one is your favorite? Who would you have rather see impersonated and by whom? (via)
