The secret to spotting fashion trends first? "Keep your eyes open," says editor Kim Hastreiter, whose quirky vision has helped make Paper, the style magazine she cofounded in 1984, a hipster bible. Among the treats in this 20th-anniversary retrospective:
River Phoenix, 1991. "This was a multi-culti moment in style."
Naomi Campbell and Isaac Hayes, 1990. Says Hastreiter: "We felt the '70s coming on."
In the '90s, "to make an urban party fabulous, you had to have drag queens" (like Tobell, Brandywine and Sophia).
