Oh, the New York fashion set was just one of many groups that was lampooned by Spy magazine in the '80s and '90s. Spy took on some of the biggest egos of the late 20th century. The writer Dave Eggers called it cruel and brilliant. Donald Trump, a frequent Spy magazine target, called it quote, "a piece of garbage."
And now you can decide for yourself, because Google has digitized the back issues of this defunct magazine.
You, too, can relive the magazine's memorable feature Separated at Birth. It offered side-by-side photos of celebrities who resembled each other. An issue from the summer of '94 compared Fergie, the Duchess of York, to Alice from "The Brady Bunch," and Geraldo Rivera to Bozo the Clown.
