The average age of Vogue cover models

Fashion magazines and statistics is a rare combination:

Plus, she added, “Who is there with any kind of real style or longevity in their 30s or 20s right now? Britney Spears? Kim Kardashian? These are flashes in the pan. Many are shallow reality stars like Snooki. Style icon? Um, talk to me in a year. Frankly, it’s here today, gone tomorrow. Lindsay Lohan? What’s to look up to?”

The statistics for several magazines bear her out. The average age of Vogue cover models in the past year is 34.5; Harper’s Bazaar, 32.5; Elle, 31.6; InStyle, 34.2; and W, 34.9. Harper’s had the biggest range, putting 17-year-old Miley Cyrus on its February cover and 47-year-old Demi Moore out front in April. (Moore also graced the cover of the December issue of W; she is the oldest cover model for those five magazines.)
