While it has long been the world’s most esteemed fashion magazine, Vogue has also sported many beautiful artsy covers throughout its long history. Take a look at some of them from the 1910s to the 1930s after the jump!
It’s kind of difficult to imagine Vogue without the pretty-faced and statuesque models sporting the latest trends and looks of the season. However, the fashion tome, throughout its long history, also explored beauty and style through eye-catching illustrations showing the latest trends and fashions of the times.

Between 1938 to 1971, Vogue also ran four covers featuring fascinating artworks by surrealist painter Salvador Dali. While not exactly fashion-themed, Dali’s art on the fashion magazine’s covers somehow allude to the iconic artist’s contributions and involvement in the fashion industry — from his surrealist-themed jewelry, to his supposed affair with the legendary Coco Chanel, to the products of his collaboration with Italian fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli.
