about

A beautiful celebration of haute couture dresses from the early 20th century to today.

Vogue: The Gown is a fabulous collection of more than 300 images grouped into five thematic chapters: Classical, Fantasy, Drama, Decorative and Modernist.

More than a collection of photographs of dresses, the book is a curated exploration of the art of fashion photography: how, inspired by literature, art and current trends, elaborate and detailed fantasies are created in which the model and her gown become the focus.

Succinct captions place each photo in context, listing the photographer, the model, the designer, and how the image fit into or created design trends.

Many of the fashion superstars of the modeling and acting world are here: Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Kim Basinger, Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Christy Turlington, Sienna Miller, Jerry Hall, Cate Blanchett, Marlene Dietrich, Bianca Jagger, Claudia Schiffer, Joan Collins, Jennifer Lawrence, Cindy Crawford and Vivien Leigh.

The world''s greatest fashion houses are featured, including Versace, Givenchy, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Pierre Cardin, Christian Louboutin, Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Hermes, Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Giorgio Armani, Oscar de la Renta, Jean Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartney, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, Prada and Isaac Mizrahi.

The book is both an evocative celebration of almost a century of fashion history and a stunning collection from the very best fashion photographers, including Tim Walker, Mario Testino, Helmut Newton, Nick Knight, David Bailey, Herb Ritts, Norman Parkinson, Corinne Day, Cecil Beaton and Horst.

Presented in a luxurious foil-stamped cloth cover, Vogue: The Gown is a mesmerizing exhibition of the best and most iconic images from the pages of the world''s most fashionable magazines.
