Anna Wintour and Hamish Bowles Talk Vogue History on CBS

Vogue‘s leading ladies, Anna Wintour and Hamish Bowles took a stroll through the mag’s storied history with MTV VJ turned legitimate reporter Serena Altschul yesterday on CBS Sunday Morning.

In this video of the interview, we get a look at the first cover from 1892 and the journey from Gibson Girl illustrations to Art Deco motifs; from the first cover in color from 1932 to the supermodels of the 70s and 80s and pulling in for a landing at today’s celebrity-rich covers. All while promoting the new Vogue digital archive, which costs nearly $1600 for a year. However, in 2012 Vogue subscribers will get limited access to the archive, thus finally providing incentive to renew that long-gestating subscription. [CBS]
