Vanity Fur

Mock magazine Cover "Vanity Fur"

Mock magazine Cover “Vanity Fur” spoof of Bette Midler in “The Rose.” Shot for The Mainline Animal Rescue.

This mock magazine cover was shot for The Mainline Animal Rescue. It is a parody of the December 1979 cover of Rolling Stone which featured Bette Midler. She had just starred in The Rose, a film loosely based on the life of Janis Joplin.

The concept and tag lines were from the mind of Bill Smith, founder of The Mainline Animal Rescue. Had he not set his sites on helping animals in need, he surely could have been a successful copywriter for advertising or public relations. Bill is never at a loss for great ideas to promote his cause. When he starts brainstorming better bring an umbrella!
