Vogue is eccentric, amusing, and nonconformist. Vogue is provocative and avant-garde: it breaks with convention. This book brings together in one volume some ninety years’ worth of iconic Paris Vogue covers, both illustrated and photographic.
A magazine that has documented trends for nearly a century provides an archive full of more than pretty pictures: these images record the history of style and chic, of trends in fashion and design, as well as the month-to-month whims of popular culture.
Among the covers are creations by some of the greatest artists of their era: distinguished illustrators such as Lepape, Gruau, and Benito, and photographers like Man Ray, Steichen, Newton, Bourdin, and Testino. Here, too, are iconic faces: Catherine Deneuve, Twiggy, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss, and more.
