Ageless Grace

Every month, when that little grey plastic-covered package lands on my mews-bound doorstep, I wait with baited breath before challenging Morgs to a game of 'who's on the cover of Vogue'. Each month we toss between celebrity vs. model vs. credible actress and every month we equally get it wrong. Only moments ago as he put Giselle on the table for September's issue and I on the other hand put Mossy. And I won. With a ear-piercing squeal I might add.

It's been a while (for her anyway) since KM was on the cover and although it's not my favourite KM cover (that'd be October 2008), you can't deny her longevity and her ability to weather the media storms that keep coming her way.

I wonder whether she'll keep on gracing the covers of Vogue for years to come and I wonder whether whether she'll age as gracefully as Carmen Dell'Orefice, who, at the grand age of 78 still looks as fresh today as she did when she first took Vogue's cover at the tender age of 15.

What are your thoughts?
