The latest exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, Vogue 100: A Century of Style, was not what I expected. I usually tend to avoid Vogue and other fashion magazines, simply for the reason that fashion doesn’t feature high on my list of priorities. I do, however, have a secret passion for the creativity and escapism of fashion photography and Vogue, without doubt, features some of the most daring and outlandish photographs in the world of fashion. The exhibition is a treat. It is beautifully staged, wonderfully designed and features endless pictures from Vogue’s early days in 1892 to its transformation throughout the glitz and glamor of the 20s right up to the present day. I was pleasantly surprised that Vogue covered political and cultural affairs, including Matisse hard at work making his famous cut-outs in bed. It’s definitely an exhibition not to be missed.
