Vogue Paris 1920-2020
Palais Galliera, Paris
October 02, 2021 – January 30, 2022

The Palais Galliera presents a major new exhibition celebrating 100 years of Vogue Paris magazine. Founded by Condé Nast in 1920, Vogue Paris is the oldest French fashion magazine still published today, and the only title in the group that bears the name of a city rather than a country. As the capital of fashion, Paris is portrayed in Vogue as the epicenter of cultural and artistic life, and the Parisienne as the embodiment of Vogue woman.

A mirror of its time and a champion of creativity, Vogue Paris has always been a major player in fashion, reflecting or challenging notions of taste, beauty and elegance. The exhibition illustrates the magazine’s ability to create, to adapt and to anticipate over the past 100 years. Vogue Paris 1920-2020 traces the history of the magazine through the editors-in-chief whose editorial and artistic choices have made it what it is: from Michel de Brunhoff, via Edmonde Charles-Roux, Francine Crescent and Carine Roitfeld, to Emmanuelle Alt. It is these exceptional personalities, the length of time they spent working with the magazine, and their commitment, that have given Vogue Paris its unique character and consistency.

The exhibition highlights the talent of the great illustrators, and particularly photographers that Vogue Paris has encouraged. Hoyningen-Huene, Horst, Bourdin, Klein, Newton, Watson, Lindbergh, Testino, Inez & Vinoodh, are among those who produced their most beautiful spreads for Vogue Paris. In this chronological tour, a number of spotlight displays pay tribute to the magazine’s faithful collaborators. The exhibition highlights Vogue Paris’s special relationship with those great couturiers, who the magazine supported throughout their careers, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld. Vogue woman is epitomized in the exhibition by Catherine Deneuve and Kate Moss, the two women who posed for the most front covers.
