Something about a gown's intrinsic construction, unashamed opulence and sheer feminine romance ignites in us the promise of fairy-tale adventure and unparalleled glamour. The magical gowns featured here give full reign to those fantasies, be they the sublime yet simple classical creations of Madame Gres, the heavenly bodies sculpted by Azzedine Alaia, the lean, seductive lines of a Deco-inspired silhouette or huge tulle poufs fit for a princess.

In Vogue: The Gown Jo Ellison has curated a collection of more than 300 images and grouped them together into five thematic chapters: Classical, Drama, Decorative and Modernist. The book provides both an evocative celebration of almost a century of fashion history while also showcasing the work of the very best photographers including, Tim Walker, Mario Testino, Nick Knight, David Bailey, Herb Ritts, Norman Parkinson, Corinne Day, Cecil and Horst.

Now available in a new format with a luxurious real cloth cover, at a more pocket-friendly price of 30, this is essential reading for fashionistas everywhere.
