Flashback Friday: Amanda Cuts Loose


Every Friday, we are publishing some truly classic archival content in honor of our ’80s-themed July issue. Here is a spring fashion drama starring Linda Gray from March of 1984:

Linda Gray is unforgettable as our Amanda—a Los Angeles woman who finds hope in the midst of despair while wriitng her lover who has left her for two weeks to find his “own space.” Her letters may be spare, but her closet is bulging with the newest clean, lean, and understated looks for spring ’84. Her style is body conscious as well as fashion conscious. And though she is too savvy to jump on a fashion bandwagon that doesn’t suit her, she is also in tune with the changing drama of fashion and knows how to play every scene.
