Vogue Paris magazine founded by Condé Nast publishers in 1920

Founded by Condé Nast in 1920, Vogue Paris is the oldest French magazine still published today, besides being the only title in the group that bears the name of a city rather than a country. Paris is still regarded as the capital of fashion, and is portrayed as the epicenter of cultural and artistic life. The Parisienne is regarded as the embodiment of the Vogue Woman.

Mirror of its time

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, curated by Sylvie Lécallier, head of the Palais Galliera photo collection, assisted by Juliette Chaussat, with Adrien Rovero as artistic director, traces the history of magazine through its editors-in-chief. Beginning with Michel de Brunhoff, via Edmonde Charles-Roux, Francine Crescent and Carine Roitfeld, to Emmanuelle Alt.

These exceptional personalities coloured Vogue Paris with their unique character and their commitment to elegance.

The role of illustrators and photographers

The talent of great illustrators and photographers are highlighted in the show, especially those who have played an essential role in the making of the monthly magazine : Hoyningen-Huene, Horst, Bourdin, Klein, Newton, Watson, Lindbergh, Testino, Inez & Vinoodh are among those who produced stunning spreads for Vogue Paris.
 
Chronologically, the number of spotlights displays pay tribute to the magazine’s faithful collaborators, highlighting the special relationship that Vogue Paris consistently maintained with great couturiers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld, to mention only two of many extraordinary talents. The Vogue Woman is epitomized here by Catherine Deneuve and Kate Moss, two women who posed for most of the cover pages.
