The archives of British Vogue define modern portraiture. Its collection remains the essential barometer of the social and cultural changes of the last century. So, portrayed here are the great, the good, and, frequently, the infamous too. PEOPLE IN VOGUE 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-century''s 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 their allure (or notoriety) in terms of their era, circumstance and lifestyle, frequently with the reactions of Vogue''s critics and commentators. PEOPLE IN VOGUE is a unique modern archive of a century and beyond -- as stunningly produced as the people within its pages.

About the Book

The archives of British Vogue define modern portraiture. Its collection remains a stylish barometer of the social and cultural changes that shaped the 20th century. Now, portrayed here are the great, the good, and the not so good. From princesses to rock stars, models to actors, society beauties to world leaders, these are figures who have made an enduring mark on their age. And just as the pictures are a Who's Who of the brilliant and beautiful, the selection of photographers is equally stellar. Daring, discerning, iconoclastic--here are the people who defined their art: Horst, Beaton, Steichen, Penn, Snowdon, Parkinson, Bailey, and Testino, to name but a few. A lavish pictorial record of a century and beyond, as stylish as those within its pages. Robin Derrick, Creative Director of British Vogue, and Robin Muir, the magazine's former picture editor, are the authors of Unseen Vogue, which People magazine hailed as "a stunning visual catalog of fashion."
