Faces of Fashion
Celebrities are to be the focus of a new photo exhibit at London’s National Portrait Gallery.
“Face of Fashion” is the name of a new exhibition aimed at following a new artistic trend oriented toward fashion photography that will be launched at London’s National Portrait Gallery next year, according to the Telegraph.
Celebrities to be featured include top model Kate Moss, actor Brad Pitt, actresses Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman, Drew Barrymore and Sharon Stone, along with pop singers Madonna, Bjork and Justin Timberlake.
“Fashion surrounds us. It may sometimes irritate us but it has an influence which is undeniable,” said gallery director Sandy Nairne. “This is the first time there has been a concentration on it as portraiture.”
The Telegraph also said that the exhibit will include the previously published works of famed fashion photographers Marcus Piggott, Mert Alas, Paolo Roversi, Corinne Day, Steven Klein and Mario Sorrenti.
“Face of Fashion” runs from 15 February to 28 May next year.
