To Vogue? Who Knew?

Vogue is that fashion magazine that comes out every month showing the world what is "in" and what is "out". Actresses and models graze the covers alluring individuals all around the world to buy the glossy, stylist magazine that is bound to entice your senses through every picture.

I was one of the allured viewers who caught sight of the February Vogue issue with Taylor Swift on the cover. As I glanced through each page a small picture of Madonna on the bottom corner with text saying, "LEGENDS OF THE BALLS" caught my eye. After reading it I learn something I never knew, so here is your fact for the day that most probably do not know about.....

What is "Vogue" exactly? At least what is it today? In the early 80's the noun Vogue turned into "to Vogue." It was an action done by fashionable individuals in Harlem and the Bronx. After going to incredible fashion shows people would gather and have a ball, very late at night, where they would channel and creatively depict the latest fashion styles on the runway.... interestingly enough these balls were held by impoverished gay kids... Who knew?
