In VogueBy: Alberto Oliva and Norberto Angeletti

With commentaries by Grace Coddington, Steven Klein, Harold Koda, Grace Mirabella, S.I. Newhouse, Jr., Anna Wintour, Kohle Yohannan, and an excerpt by Susan Sontag

Rizzoli New York, 2006

For over a century, Vogue has been the gold standard of publications targeting stylish women of all ages. In 1909 Conde Nast acquired the magazine and turned it into one of the most influential,  must-read publications of our time. In Vogue is an entertaining account of Vogue's evolution... as detailed in three historical perspectives-- Vogue and the Culture of Fashion illustrates the beginning of Vogue and the birth of fashion photography, The New Woman in Vogue examines the evolution of style spirited by the various directors at Vogue and The Magazine of the New Century details the influence and power of Vogue under the reign Anna Wintour.

This lavishly illustrated and gorgeously produced book looks at over one-hundred years of history of one of the most culturally influential magazines in America. The lush book includes thousands of reproductions of Vogue photographs, illustrations and covers as well as commentaries by Vogue luminaries including Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour, former Editor-In Chief Grace Mirabella and Publisher S.I. Newhouse, Jr.. In Vogue represents the magazine's evolution in style, cultural focus and influence.

This is a terrific book for anyone interested in fashion and has an appreciation for the history of our culture. A definite Must-Have!
