From February next year, fashion and photography fans will be able to catch Vogue 100: A Century of Style at the National Portrait Gallery. There will be over 280 prints from Vogue publishing house Condé Nast's archive, with photographs by the likes of Cecil Beaton, Lee Miller and Irving Penn and covering everyone from Kate Moss to David Hockney and Henri Matisse to Lady Di. 

It'll be a reflection of the style and culture movements that have taken place in Britain and beyond over the past decade. And it's not just in London either - the exhibition will tour to Manchester Art Gallery from 24th June - 30th October 2016. Dr Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, London, says: "British Vogue has played a pivotal role in the development of photographic portraiture over the past century, commissioning leading photographers and designers to produce some of the most memorable and influential images in the history of fashion."

Vogue 100: A Century of Style runs 11th February - 22nd May
