"In Vogue is the most comprehensive history of twentieth-century fashion in its wider sense, seen in its social and cultural context, seen as influenced by literature, by the visual and performing arts; and fashion in its narrower sense of women's clothes, its looks evolving from the mood of the times and crystallizing in Paris, Hollywood or London.

"In Vogue is the cream of almost sixty years of Vogue magazine in British, its text and over 1,000 pictures a feast of high style from the mid-war years of 1916 to the uncertain seventies. You can see Theda Bara, Lady Diana Cooper, Josephine Baker, Gertie Lawrence, Fred Astaire, Daisy Fellowes, Ann Todd, Vivien Leigh, Audrey Hepburn, the Beatles, Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy....Let the Russian ballet lead you to Oriental escape....take your green hat to Deauville or the Riviera....read Elsa Maxwell's recipe for a good party, or wear the 'poor look' to meet the Depression....hear Garbo speak, copy Dietrich's eyebrows....save your stockings to dance to Lew Stone in the blitz....watch the News Look break on grey 1947....see the King's Road fill with a new generation...observe the brave new world of the sixties and review the possibilities for the eighties."

Designers include Poiret, Lucile, Vionnet, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Balenciaga, Dior, Mary Quaint, Jean Muir, Saint Laurent; photographers include Steichen, Hoyningen-Huene, Beaton, Horst, Rawlings, Penn, Parkinson, & Bailey.    [Book ID # 1889]
