This month marks the 100th anniversary of British Vogue. In celebration, the magazine has opened its archives for a sweeping exhibition of fashion, beauty, and portrait photography at London’s National Portrait Gallery. Spread across the entire ground floor, the show brings together works by legendary photographers, from Man Ray and Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino and Tim Walker. In amassing the collection, curator Robin Muir traversed the globe borrowing prints from private collectors and galleries, making this a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of these iconic images.
