The archives of British Vogue in many ways define modern portraiture. Its collection remains a barometer of the social and cultural changes of the last century. So, portrayed here are the great, the good, and, frequently, the infamous too. This volume provides an insight into those who, through talent, beauty, personality or an alchemical combination of all three, set a stamp on their age. From life-enhancers to the great catalysts of change; princesses and pop stars; models, writers and actors; architects and designers; society beauties and style dictators; scientists and world leaders. They all appear here, fixed in their time by the 20th-centurys leading photographers: Hoppe, Baron de Meyer, Horst, Beaton, Steichen, Snowdon, Parkinson, Bailey, Newton, Weber, Knight, Teller, Testino and others. A commentary accompanies each picture, describing the subject and his or her allure (or notoriety) in terms of era, circumstance and lifestyle, frequently with the reactions of Vogues critics and commentators. The book is a modern archive of a century.
