Vogue History of 20th Century Fashion LINDA WATSON’S Vogue: Twentieth Century Fashion charts the course of style as seen in the magazine’s pages in the last 100 years. Watson believes the twentieth century as one with the greatest change: from a time when the showing of an ankle was shocking to see-through garments and G-strings being acceptable fare at a catwalk show. Fashion went from mere clothing to a force which influences, in the author’s words in a recent interview, ‘food to mannerisms, music to sex.’
   Vogue: Twentieth Century Fashion features a decade-by-decade history in the vein of Jane Mulvagh’s Vogue: History of 20th Century Fashion published a decade ago. It adds an A to Z of designers. It stands up well in comparison with Georgina Howell’s Vogue: 75 Years of Style, which celebrated the British edition’s jubilee in 1991.
   An American edition is due to be published in February 2000, but for now, if you must get this title—and we suggest you do, before the twentieth century becomes a memory—order from our Lucire Shopping Guide link to

PABLO ROVERSI is well known for his work in Italian Vogue. This much-anticipated book shows some of the best-known faces from the modelling world—including Tatjana Patitz, Shalom Harlow, Milla Jovovich, Audrey Marnay, Angela Lindvall and Amber Valletta—in as unadorned a fashion as possible: no borders, no colour and no clothing. There have been some criticisms that the techniques used are repetitive, although almost all the images are tastefully done.

ONE of our favourite British designers, Vivienne Westwood, is deservedly a part of her nation's fashion culture. From the early days and punk styles to constant innovation in her latest collections, Westwood is Cool Britannia fashion before the Labour Government even began to popularize the expression.
