The Duchess of Cambridge has been unveiled on the June 2016 issue of British Vogue to mark its centennial birthday. The magazine shoot which also extends to 10 pages inside the publication, is shot by photograph Josh Olins and is extra special as this will become the first magazine photoshoot she has ever partaken in.
In addition to the birthday celebrations, the magazine has been holding an exhibition of ‘100 Years of Vogue’ showcasing more than 280 photographs and covers from the publication’s archive which is currently being held in the National Portrait Gallery. Two photographs from the exclusive shoot with the duchess will be added on display at the exhibition this week, which she will view at the gallery on May 4th. The exhibition will be at the National Portrait until the 22nd of May.
The photo shoot works well to reflect the Kate in her personality trait by selecting a casual countryside look, styled in designer pieces such as Petit Bateau and Burberry. The shoot took place in a quiet area of Norfolk a homeland to the Duchess
The British Vogue editor-in-chief, Alexandra Shulman told Vogue magazine:
“It’s a huge honour and incredibly exciting for us to have HRH The Duchess of Cambridge featuring on the cover of British Vogue and as part of our centenary issue,”…”For me personally it has been a wonderful experience to have had the opportunity to work with her on this, and I am immensely proud of what we have produced. This special issue of the magazine is very close to my heart as it had to reflect on 100 years of British Vogue, and so I am hugely grateful that we have been able to continue with our tradition of outstanding royal portraiture with these pictures”.
