When we read the news this morning that the cinnamon-haired Maggie Rizer got plucked as the new face of Dooney & Bourke, we felt secretly pleased. And not because the images are blowing our minds or anything, but because it sparked our memory of the late '90s/early 2000s high-art Maggie (see our faves below). From edgy over-the-top editorials in Vogue Paris and Harper's Bazaar to stalking the runway at Prada, Rizer was (and is) one of those girls that proved you didn't have to look like a typical supermodel to be super-huge. So, is it comeback time yet?
