Nostalgia in Vogue celebrates the popular and poignant coming-of-age memoir columns that have been enchanting Vogue readers since 2000. This elegant volume collects a wonderful selection of Vogue's famous “Nostalgia” columns and the stunning photographs that accompanied them. Writers, designers, models, and celebrities share coming-of-age stories based on a rich range of themes from fashion to art, Hollywood, music, childhood, work, and love, each triggered by an extraordinary photograph from Vogue's history.
With a host of intriguing characters and stories, and images by legendary photographers such as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Henry Clarke, Helmut Newton, Horst P. Horst, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Nostalgia in Vogue is both a visual treat and a fascinating read. Whether told from the point of view of a budding movie star or a teenager straining to make sense of the sophisticated adult world, each entry offers a unique slice of life sharply evocative of time and place. Nostalgia in Vogue is a must for devotees of fashion, pop culture, photography, and literary memoir and reaches across a readership of all ages. Text by Eve Macsweeney with a Foreword by Anna Wintour and essays by Joan Didion, Margaret Atwood, Patti Smith, Edmund White, Karl Lagerfeld, Carly Simon, John Galliano, Ann Packer, Anjelica Huston, Nora Ephron, A.
