74 years ago today (on Mar.7), Glamour Magazine published its first issue, featuring actress Ann Sheridan on the cover. Back then it was called Glamour of Hollywood and only ran in the United States. But today, the Condé Nast published mag has developed a cult-like following with editions in three different continents.
Their first-ever cover girl, Ms. Sheridan, was a big icon of the 1930s. With a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame and roles in dozens of movies and television series (like "Angels With Dirty Faces" and "Man Who Came to Dinner"), she was the perfect choice for Glamour's debut. The cover photo focuses on Sheridan's face rather than her clothes, a big change from the mag's current issues. Today, the publication puts out covers that are a little more controversial (ahem, Kate Hudson on the April 2013 issue, where we see a whole lot more than just her visage).
