It features the fashion designers who defined the century - Chanel, Saint Laurent, McQueen - and explores more broadly the changing form of the twentieth-century woman. Exhibition: National Portrait Gallery, London, UK (11.02-23.05.2016)
It was an immediate success, and over the following ten decades of uninterrupted publication continued to mirror its times - the austerity and optimism that followed two world wars, the Swinging London - scene of the sixties, the radical seventies, the image-conscious eighties - and inits second century remains at the cutting edge of photography and design. Decade by decade, Vogue 100 celebrates the greatest moments in fashion, beauty and portrait photography. Illustrated throughout with well-known images, as well as the less familiar, the book focuses on the faces that shaped the cultural landscape: from Matisse to Bacon, Freud and Hirst, from Dietrich to Paltrow, from Rudolph Valentino to David Beckham, fromLady Diana Cooper to Lady Diana Spencer
While principally a fashion magazine, Vogue has never been just that. It has assumed a central and vital role on the cultural stage, with a history that spans the most inventive decades in fashion and taste, and in the arts and society. Published to mark the magazines centenary, and accompanying a major exhibition, this book celebrates the twentieth century and beyond with an authoritative and discriminating eye. In more than 2,000 issues, British Vogue has acted as a cultural barometer, putting fashion in the context of the wider world - how we dress, how we entertain, what we eat, listen to, watch, who leads us, excites us and inspires us. The century's most talented photographers, Lee Miller, Norman Parkinson, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, David Bailey, Snowdon and Mario Testino among them, have contributed to it. In 1916, when the First World War made transatlantic shipments of American Vogue impossible, its proprietor, Condé Nast, authorised a British edition
