Happy birthday, Vogue! Fashion magazine to celebrate 100th anniversary with exhibition of iconic photos of models including Kate Moss and Claudia Schiffer
When British Vogue first published a picture of Kate Moss in her knickers when she was just 19 they were accused of being pornographic.
The controversial photos taken by Corinne Day of the supermodel in 1993 showed her standing against a bedroom wall wearing only underwear and a low cut pink vest top.
Now the full set of prints from the shoot are to go on display in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London, from February
Vogue 100: A Century of Style, is being held to mark the magazine’s 100th anniversary and will showcase the prolific portraits they have commissioned over the last century.
The collection will also feature a later shoot of Moss taken by Mario Testino in 2008 that alludes to the Nineties controversy with the model again standing against a wall and holding up her skirt to reveal black sheer knickers.
