9 Photos From Vogue's Archive That Highlight Fashion's Glamorous History

Late last month, London’s Lumas Gallery ran an exhibit that displayed some of the most spectacular highlights from Vogue's photo archive.

The publication has been at the forefront of fashion for over a century, and their pages have showcased some of the world's best photographers, from Erwin Blumenfeld to André Kertész. Below, check out a selection of the fashion magazine's best photos -- including Gloria Swanson ethereally draped in black lace, Kate Moss rocking a bathing suit in a laundromat and Twiggy's legendary '60s brightness.
