Book Description
Vogue Women is a dazzling tour through the history of Vogue magazine and the history of fashion and beauty culture stretching from early fashion magazines depicting debutantes and royalty in formal dress to the chic and daring fashions of the 1920's and 30's. We see the heroic sentimentality of wartime, the rebirth of glamour in Paris, the rising status of fashion models, and the creation of fashion icons that were the forerunners of the Supermodels of the late 80's. Vogue Women scrutinizes the emblems of beauty that survive radical changes in style from the days of Queen Alexandra to today. We see the 'Vogue treatment' that includes expert photography, makeup and hair, and meticulous attention to detail. But we also see something more in these faces, a less tangible side of glamour from Marlene Dietrich to Josephine Baker, Jacqueline Kennedy to Madonna that is timelessly alluring.
