When it comes to fashion, Lauren Hutton’s name is one that always comes up. One of the most famous models in the world, Laura’s beauty and grace are unmatched. Fashionistas around the world attempt to copy her style, but they fall short every single time. The Lauren Hutton Vogue covers have been the talk of each month, and now at the age of 77, she doesn’t seem to be stopping. Recently, she appeared in the December issue of Vogue Beauty to talk about how even at this age, she manages to keep her skin flawless.
Featuring on a record 40 editions, Lauren Hutton’s Vogue covers have come to show a history of fashion throughout the years. She began working with Vogue in 1966, appearing in the November issue, and since then there has been no looking back for her or the magazine.
Hutton has appeared on the cover of 27 American editions since then and created waves throughout the fashion world. However, her impact does not stop there. Hutton was the first woman to ever demand a contract for her modeling, an agreement that was unheard of back in the day. She signed with Revlon in 1973 under a contract worth more than a million dollars today, paving the way forward for models everywhere.
Now, Lauren Hutton remains Vogue’s oldest cover star, with an inspiring body of work preceding her. Here are some of her best fashion moments over the years.

The choice of hair accessories became a worldwide sensation, with several covers following a similar trend later.
In 1999, Vogue issued a millennium special that celebrated the biggest models of the century. Lauren Hutton rightly found a spot here, wearing a light blue dress sitting beside her peers including Lisa Taylor and Patti Hansen. Modeling for over 30 years then, she was also surrounded by her successors such as Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss. The issue was a worldwide hit and was printed in every major edition.
Lauren Hutton’s Vogue spree continued well into her 60s, as she graced the cover of Vogue Paris in the November 2012 issue. Smiling arm in arm with fashion icons Daria Werbowy and Stephanie Seymour, she wore a simple white shirt with jeans. The edition was a huge success, with many hailing the magazine for bringing these generations of stars together.
Modeling for 50 years now, Lauren Hutton recently graced the cover of Vogue in 2017, becoming the oldest woman to do so. The issue, dubbed the Timeless issue, was directed towards women over the age of sixty. She posed for three covers for the issue published in Vogue Italia. Each was met with an overwhelmingly positive response.
