Well another year comes to an end and issue 12 of Mayfair hits the newsagents shelves. Little did we know at the time when you were plonking this down on the counter that the Mayfair magazine title had been sold to Paul Raymond.
As always the last issue of the year is a meaty offering featuring Natalie Banus on the cover and she's inside as the model of the year which is hardly surprising considering her bodywork.
The contents page credits Nikki Downey as the photographer of the Natalie shots whereas in fact it was Leslie Turtle. Kate Hewletson looks stunning in black lingerie, stockings and suspenders and Tara Bardot makes a welcome return to grace the pages. Tara was another first for Mayfair as back in Volume 24 No 5 the mag introduced Tara to its readers in her debut shoot.
Finally, your girl of the month is Sharon Hawthorne who last appeared in the August issue of this year. Sharon took the prestigious centre pages in August and repeats for this issue. Not bad going for your first two photo shoots.
Mayfair Vol 26 Issue 3 - March 1991Claire Summers is the cover girl for this 1991 issue of Mayfair and she takes the centrefold too which is some going because this is the first time that Claire had done any modelling! The set was taken by Joanie Allum and proved so popular that a further series of images were run in the June issue of Mayfair from this same year, that's Mayfair Vol 26 No 6.
Joanie has another set of note in this issue and that is of Kate Hewletson who was photographed in pink lingerie with see through panties, pink stockings and black heels.
