National Portrait Gallery Director, Andrew Sayers says “We are very pleased to be able to present this exhibition to Australian audiences. It fits perfectly with our interest in celebrity,style, of-the-moment people and, of course, the work of great portrait photographers. A particular feature of the exhibition seasonat the National Portrait Gallery is the inclusion of a number of Australians who have made it on the world’s stage. Like all of the subjects in the exhibition these Australians have been captured with that mixture of flair, originality and incisiveness that is aunique quality of Vanity Fair”
