It was a busy weekend as we visited the Vogue exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. As soon as I heard about the exhibition I had to go as I do love magazines from my school times. I loved buying the back issue magazines, reading and looking at the photography.
The exhibition celebrates the magazine, the influence of it and of course the amazing photographers who have contributed to it. It was great to see the differences of the models used, the changing make-up trends and the style of photography. They had put together an issue from each year from the first to the latest issue. You even had original drawings from the 1920s at the show. You even had a slide show with the images by Bruce Weber and Helmut Newton been displayed. You had war images from Lee Miller which showed that Vogue isn’t just interested in beauty and fashion but the world around us.
If you have the chance to go and visit the exhibition, do as it is a wonderful view of the world from Vogue and how it has evolved over 100 years.
