that's Life!

Life, the first all-photographic American news magazine,
celebrates its 75th anniversary this month showcasing 
the most striking covers in chronological order 
as chosen by the website's editors (the magazine 
definitely ceased publication with April 2007 
issue and keeps going exclusively online).
I've just selected some of them among the fashion-related
ones: they're still a gripping source of inspiration through
pivotal events, changing trends and timeless style icons.
Hope you enjoy Life's life's work.
