Vogue Paris: 100 Years
Sylvie Lécallier and Alice Morin
Published to mark the magazine’s centenary, this book celebrates Vogue Paris’s history from its first issue in 1920 to its current incarnation with Emmanuelle Alt at the helm. On its pages are creations by some of the greatest artists of their era, whether distinguished illustrators such as Lepape, Gruau and Benito, or photographers such as Man Ray, Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Mario Testino. Here, too, are iconic faces: Catherine Deneuve, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss and more. And of course, it showcases the fashion designers who defined the century – Chanel, Dior, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, McQueen – and explores more broadly the changing mores of the past hundred years.
Sylvie Lécallier graduated in 1993 from the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie. Since 2000, she has overseen the Galliera photography collection at the Musée de la Mode de la ville de Paris. She is the author of several books, including Coming into Fashion.
