Vogue 100: A Century Of Style | National Portrait Gallery

The one and only: Vivienne Westwood
SUPERmodel: Linda Evangelista
Naomi Campbell on the December 1987 issue of Vogue

Vogue's extensive archives
"Anybody interested in photography, fashion, fame and magazines will find this an unmissable experience"
Alexander Shulman (Editor of Vogue UK)

To mark 100 years of British Vogue, a major exhibition has opened at the National Portrait Gallery, with 280 prints from the Condè Nast archive. From world-class photographers, including Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn and Mario Testino, to world-class models, including Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne, it really was a who's who of world-class names. 

With portraits of famous fashion faces, including the iconic Vivienne Westwood and late Alexander Lee Mcqueen, as well as archives dating back to the first issue in 1916, the National Portrait Gallery was the perfect venue. Some archived Vogue magazines, including Naomi Campbell's infamous December 1987 cover, were even on offer in the giftshop selling in excess of £100! I however settled for the hardback book displaying some of the most prominent photographic portraits of Vogue's history.

The exhibition runs until May 22nd so there's plenty of time to visit this unmissable exhibition! Book your ticket at http://www.npg.org.uk/whatson/vogue/exhibition.php
