Lucille Bluth in her youth: Actress Jessica Walter modeling, circa 1965

In honor of the return of Arrested Development this weekend, may I present Lucille Bluth (nee Jessica Walter) circa 1965, in a fresh and breezy summer fashion spread to take you into the holiday weekend. The ferns and white wicker accents are an especially elegant touch, don’t you think? The groovy hostess dresses (yes, please, on the cutout red romper) and palazzo-type pajamas are designed by one Ruthanne Tuttle of Mr. Gee.

But really, who cares about the clothes (no disrespect, Mr. Gee). I can’t get over how Jessica looks Exactly. The. Same. Same hair, same makeup, same eyebrows, same figure, same skin. We are talking FIFTY years here, people! (Click on the photos to enlarge them and see for yourself.) If this is what Botox does, then sign me up. And you know how Lucille would respond to that:

So can you guess what fashion magazine this spread ran in? Surely, a circa ’65 Lucille Bluth would only grace the pages of Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar, or Vogue, right?

Nope, nope and nope.

Mademoiselle?? Woman’s World?? Lady’s Circle??? Good Housekee—oh, nevermind.

None of those magazines had the foresight to cast the woman who would become the World’s Greatest Mom as their Summer of ‘65 fashion model. So guess who did?

Wait for it…

TV Guide! I’ve had this thing on top of my TV set for 25 years, ever since I found a stack of the things in an old abandoned farm house my friends and I pillaged of vintage clothes and books. The issue is mostly dedicated to the cover story, the Munsters, and—not to diss Jessica—but the most fashionable spread is of Fred Gwynne, Mr. Munster himself. Look at those shoes! And tie! He’s quite the Ivy Leaguer, wouldn’t you say?

Have fun watching Arrested Development this weekend. I know I will!
