Sharing is caring!

If you know anything about me you know that Vogue has been a part of my life from before I was born. I have a huge collection of the magizines.  I remember late fall of 1992 when I was happy to purchase my first edition. It was the issue with Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford on the fcover. Fast-forward many years, I have followed their series, “73 Questions” and decided to use that format for my first interview.
