Every week since its inception 65 years ago, the cover of ELLE magazine has set the tone for fashion. From the New Look to blue jeans, from the miniskirt to hippie chic, all the stars, all the looks, all the revolutions in fashion and society were there on the cover of ELLE, offering its readers a weekly guide through those troubled times.
Flipping through these 600 covers from 1945 to the present—Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Sonia Rykiel and Jean-Paul Gaultier; Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve and Charlotte Gainsbourg; Inès, Cindy, Twiggy and Kate—is to immerse oneself in 65 years of style.
