(CNN)Vogue 100: A Century of Style, a major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London, showcases the remarkable range of photography that has been at the forefront of British Vogue since it was founded in 1916.

Structured in reverse chronology, the exhibition starts with the magazine today, working backwards through the decades to the very first issue 100 years ago.
Highlights of the exhibition, which is curated by the contributing editor to British Vogue, Robin Muir, include the entire set of prints from Corrine Day's controversial Kate Moss underwear shoot, taken in 1993 at the pinnacle of the 'grunge' trend; rarely seen photographs of both The Beatles and Jude Law; and a version of Horst's famous 'corset' photograph from 1939, which inspired Madonna's hit song and video 'Vogue'.
    Vogue 100: A Century of Style is organized by the National Portrait Gallery in collaboration with British Vogue as a part of the magazine's centenary celebrations.
    The exhibition runs from 11 February thru 22 May 2016.
