Trendsetters and newsmakers-actors, artists, models, first ladies, social figures-as they appeared in the pages of VOGUE from the 1960s to 2009, captured by such photographers as Cecil Beaton, Horst P. Horst, Edward Steichen, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Toni Frissell, Bruce Weber, Herb Ritts, and Annie Leibovitz. Richly illustrated with 400 color and black-and-white hotographs, THE WORLD IN VOGUE is a stunning look at more than six decades of portraits, houses, gardens, and parties of celebrated figures from many worlds.
