The Duchess visits the #Vogue100 exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery
Published 04 May 2016
The Duchess of Cambridge visits the National Portrait Gallery to view the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition.
This was the first time Her Royal Highness saw the two photographic portraits of herself displayed in the gallery, which were taken as part of a wider spread in British Vogue's centenary June issue.
The National Portrait Gallery, of which The Duchess has been Patron since 2012, has collaborated with British Vogue on the series of photographic portraits, shot by photographer Josh Olins in the Norfolk countryside, and styled by Vogue Fashion Director Lucinda Chambers.
Forming part of the magazine’s centenary celebrations, Vogue 100: A Century of Style showcases the range of photography that has been commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916. With over 280 prints from the Condé Nast archive and international collections being shown together at the National Portrait Gallery for the first time, the exhibition tells the story of one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world.
After viewing the two portraits in the exhibition, The Duchess took the opportunity to look around the rest of Vogue 100: A Century of Style, and meet people from the National Portrait Gallery and British Vogue who worked on the collaborative project.
