Ailsa Garland and Pedro AlmodóvarUnder the direction of Editor-in-chief Ailsa Garland, Vogue UK disseminated the aesthetic of the new century with a magazine that captured the landscape of Swinging London. The magazine’s September 1, 1961 issue pictured prominently made-up eyes, fresh colors and a youthful, mod sensibility. Years later, the Vogue UK 1961 cover was recreated on a poster for Pedro Almodóvar’s 1988 film Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios.
