THE V88 MUSIC ISSUE IS ON ITS WAY

TEXT WILLIAM DEFEBAUGH

V HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PLACE WHERE STARS ARE BORN AND ICONS TAKES CENTER STAGE. HERE, WE RECALL A FEW OF OUR GREATEST HITS

The marriage of music and fashion has inspired some of the greatest editorials in the history of V. We love when boundaries are blurred and the mix of high/low, underground/mainstream, uptown/downtown gets all shaken up. It is this spirit of questioning everything and marching to the beat of our own drum that led to the magazine’s conception nearly 15 years ago. 

V was one of the first major fashion publications to put a musician on its cover. That star was Kylie Minogue, in 2002, and soon after David Bowie and Beyoncé followed suit.

That list has expanded in the following years to include Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott, Janet Jackson, Grace Jones, Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys, Courtney Love, Jennifer Lopez, and Britney Spears—as well as countless other icons that have been featured inside.

We have always been excited about discovering young talent, too. Before the Saint Laurent Music Project, Hedi Slimane had established the “Rock Diary” series, for which he photographed young rockers of the moment (such as Pete Doherty, above). And in 2009, Stephen Gan went to see a buzzed-about performer in New York City. That singer’s name was Lady Gaga, and not long after, she would make her magazine debut in the pages of V. (She has since gone on to claim four killer covers.)

In the past two years alone, we have had Justin Bieber (for our first music issue), Ke$ha, Grimes, Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX, Rihanna (shot with Kate Moss—talk about a union of music and fashion), Miley Cyrus, and Prince headlining our issues.

Our penchant for promoting young talent has carried over into our upcoming issue, V88 as well. We can't wait to show you who's on the cover!
