Hats Off

Richard Avedon and Giampaolo SguraThe same year the model would sign an unheard of six-figure annual contract with Revlon, Lauren Hutton was photographed by Richard Avedon for the July 1973 issue of Vogue. Posing for the 1973 cover story “The American Woman Today Part 1,” Lauren Hutton would serve as both the all-American beauty ideal of the period along with the era’s most highly compensated model, setting a standard for many to follow. On the cover of Vogue Spain June 2013, model Anja Rubik is styled a crisp white blouse and army green bucket hat, much like Hutton 40 years earlier. However, an obvious distinction between the two: Hutton’s southern roots and Anja Rubik’s Polish nationality.

    In cases like this, and many of the other images you reference, it's often difficult to tell which are straight imitations, or homage, and which are referencing, appropriating.and transforming the originals. The earlier image appears to have a particular context for its existence, the latter only appears to have the first as context.
