Rita looked like fashion model "straight out of vogue" with an off shoulder green dress that had a plunging neckline.

What is the meaning of straight out of vogue?
I read the dictionary, and I found two definitions; one was without hesitation, and the other one was fashion that is prevalent in particular time.

Which one is correct? Why?

    That should be straight out of Vogue, capitalized. Vogue is a fairly prestigious fashion magazine. – StoneyB on hiatus Oct 7 '16 at 11:50

    Actually, A is straight out of B in this specific context doesn't specifically relate to without hesitation. It's more like directly, accurately, with no alterations (i.e. - A is exactly like something in B). – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Oct 7 '16 at 12:04

Of your two alternatives, the first "straight out of" would be more correct.


is a fashion magazine which gets its name from the noun


meaning "foremost place in popularity" from the French.

If something is

straight out of Vogue

it means it appears to come directly from the pages of the fashion magazine, highly styled, and highly stylish
