Vogue magazine was 'born' in 1916 during WW1 when shipping in the US magazine became impossible.
There are obviously thousands of iconic, fabulous photos taken by a myriad of amazing photographers.
A quick google search will provide lots of information about the models, photographers and clothes but for me, a much overlooked prize to be found among the glossy pages of Vogue are the articles themselves, always written in an artistic fashion, well-researched, relevant and thoroughly absorbing.
A stand-out article for me this year would be

by Cressida Connolly
Cressida reflects on an enduring love affair with the Continent, and why Brexit . more than any other political question. is an emotional issue.
Published in the June issue the article serves as a poignant reminder of days gone by, although Cressida could not have known this at the time of writing.
The painting above is my tribute to 100 years of Vogue.
