Catalogs #10: 1979 Victoria's Secret Catalog
I hate the way models look in catalogs and magazines today. They are so Photoshopped, they literally do not look like living breathing human beings. A real person has some kind of imperfection or blemish, be it razor burn, a zit, or a wrinkle - something! Their skin looks like it's made of polypropylene, and don't look directly at their gleaming bright teeth, it may cause retinal damage.
Take me back to the days when, if you wanted to touch up a picture, you had to use an actual airbrush. The 1970s airbrushing looked good on the side of a van, but like shit when applied to a photograph. So, it was used sparingly - most of the time it was au naturel.
So, let's have a look at the entire 1979 Victoria's Secret catalog, back when skin looked like skin, not a high performance grade polyvinyl chloride.
Click on the images to enlarge. They're a bit grainy, but such was the cheap paper this catalog is printed on.
