Overview

A stunning photographic history of the world's most beautiful and iconic women—the Vogue cover girls and supermodels—from past to present
 

Shining a light on the lives of Vogue's fashion models, this collection uses photographs and illustrations from more than 90 years of history to tell the fascinating story of the real faces of fashion. Throughout history, these models have occupied a curious position: while their faces were instantly familiar, virtually nothing else was known about them. But their impression upon Vogue's readership has always been considerable—they reflect and represent the ever-changing ideal of beauty. The models of the 1950s are represented, such as Lisa Fonssagrives and Dorian Leigh, who were the first to become household names and to achieve the glamour and prestige that came with world fame. And of course there are plenty of stunning images of the supermodels of the 1990s who turned the profession into a billion-dollar industry, so that today models such as Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer, and Gisele Bündchen are brand names.
