It is a can’t-miss exhibit for fashion fans, and even if you’re not a fashionista it is a fascinating look at 100 years of lifestyle, celebrity and history. The show features almost 300 prints from the British Vogue collection with images from some of the world’s most famous photographers including Lee Miller, Cecil Beaton, Snowdon, Irving Penn, David Bailey, Mario Testino and Herb Ritts.

Among the shots are portraits of Henri Matisse, Lucian Freud, Damien Hirst, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lady Diana Spencer; and designs from the likes of Dior, Alexander McQueen and Saint Laurent immortalised in photography.
