From 8th to 11th September, Vogue magazine is showcasing the Iconic Covers of Vogue Exhibition (Exposição de Capas Icónicas da Vogue) in Lisbon. As one of the must-do's during Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, the exhibition shows 17 of the most popular covers worldwide and tries to portray the evolution of important artistic movements in the areas of Fashion, Beauty, Art and Photography, which influenced the world and luxury for decades.
Irving Penn was one of the legendary photographers of the magazine. He began his career at Vogue in 1943 and photographed more than 150 covers for Vogue. In the 1960s, the emancipation of women led the magazine to a younger approach, emphasizing contemporary fashion and focusing on the sexual revolution of the time. Donyale Luna was the first african-American model to grace the cover of Vogue in 1966.
The 1980s were marked by the emergence of international fashion, while in the 1990s the covers of Vogue have been marked by the cult of supermodels and celebrities. Steven Klein has also a broad portfolio of Vogue covers, including the presence of celebrities like Madonna, Liza Minnelli and Gwyneth Paltrow.
