Some wonderful news on the glamour front...

The National Portrait Gallery in London is opening a new exhibition from today on the Golden Age of Glamour.

To quote the NPG:

"Glamour of the Gods is a celebration of Hollywood portraiture from the industry's 'Golden Age', the period 1920 to 1960. From Greta Garbo and Clark Gable to Audrey Hepburn, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, it is these portraits that transformed actors and actresses into international style icons. In many cases these are career-defining images of Hollywood's greatest names and help to illustrate their enduring appear.

Feature over 70 photographs, most of which are exquisite vintage prints displayed for the first time, the exhibition is drawn from the archive of the John Kobal Foundation and demonstrate photography's decisive role in creating and marketing the stars central to the Hollywood mystique."

The exhibition runs as I said from today until 23rd October and from the trailer it looks to be a wonderful experience, it definately looks as if it's worth a trip to London for this. I'm just wondering what prints etc will be available to buy there.

Go have a look at the link! Its very interesting!
