PARIS VOGUE: COVERS 1920-2009 (Thames & Hudson, £24.95)

In her foreword, French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld expounds on the criteria for a “good cover”: the model staring straight into the camera, connecting with the reader’s gaze is essential. Twiggy on the cover of May 1967 is a winner, likewise a youthful Brook Shields from November 1982, as is Kate Moss below.

In fact, more than just a retrospective of Vogue covers, this book charts the rise, reign, and demise of the key players in the modeling world. Addictive reading, if only for playing a very fashionable Guess Who.
