British Vogue Celebrates Its Centenary with an Exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery

Can you believe that British Vogue will soon turn 100? To mark the special occasion, the fashion bible will be teaming up with London’s iconic National Portrait Gallery for an exhibition entitled Vogue 100: A Century of Style. Fittingly, the exhibition will be curated by Robin Muir, who is also a contributing editor for British Vogue, and will feature a range of images derived from the publication’s archives, all of which portray a distinct cultural significance.

From the images that Lee Miller shot as Vogue’s World War II correspondent to our favourite models like Kate Moss and celebrities like David Beckham who have at some point graced those sought-after pages, the exhibition is set to be a real walk down memory lane for die-hard British Vogue fans. Of course the exhibition wouldn’t be complete without an image or two of some of the world’s most renowned artists, so expect to see portraits of fashion designers, such as Alexander McQueen and Yves Saint Laurent.

If seeing your favourite fashion designers and celebrities isn’t enough, remember that most of these images were shot by some of the best photographers of our time like Mario Testino and David Bailey. Making the exhibition even more of a must-see. If you’re up for celebrating the iconic mag’s centenary, the exhibition will run from 11 February to 22 May 2016 at London’s National Portrait Gallery.
