People in Vogue: A Century of Portraits
by Robin Derrick
Publisher's Description
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.'
