Vogue Essentials:

OrangeReviewStarThe first two "Vogue Essentials" titles featuring photos from British Vogue's vast archives are smaller than previous big-box Vogue books, but they still deliver. Spreads mix decades, designers, and photographers to present old and new together, with facts about the trends and looks and designers. Fashion journalist Asome wittily whisks readers into the world of designer bags and other "arm candy," while British Vogue contributing editor Fox smoothly slips them into the little black dress.
VERDICT Thoughtfully juxtaposed layouts, brief, pithy descriptions, and a reasonable price make these little black books essential for those who desire a quick but quality look at fashion history.
