Cosmopolitan and Helen Gurley Brown

Cosmopolitan and Helen Gurley Brown

It was sad to hear of the passing yesterday of magazine icon Helen Gurley Brown.  She was an incredible pioneer for women through her contributions in the magazine industry.  As a tribute to this amazing woman, here are a few of my favorite Cosmo covers through the years.

Rene Russo  (1978)

Gia Carangi  (1980)...the world's "first" supermodel

Jerry Hall  (1985)

Jill Goodacre  (1988)

Linda Evangelista   (1991)

Kate Moss  (1993)

Jennifer Aniston  (1997)

Frederique  (2000)

Molly Sims  (2002)

Jessica Alba  (2007)
