On the one hand, the giddy Twenties had grown up into a time of elegance and romance, platinum blondes, white tie and gardenias by your plate, with Cole Porter's 'Night and Day' on the gramophone. But this Hollywood-style dream was played out against a backdrop of a world sunk in the Depression and the growing threat of Fascism, that eventually came to a head in world war. The Thirties in Vogue is a look at this confused and exciting decade, seen through the eyes of the most stylish and important magazine of the time. Here, with exclusive photographs by Cecil Beaton, is the scandal of Edward and Mrs. Simpson that rocked the British monarchy and ended with the King's abdication. . . here is the Coronation of his brother Bertie in his place..the Golden Age of Hollywood, with idols Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Katharine Hepburn,Joan Crawford, and Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. . . here is 'swing,' with Benny Goodman and 'Hutch'.. and smart society; tightening its belt in a changing world. Vogue mirrored the latest news in the cinema, theatre, ballet, literature, and the other arts, and reflected the trends for health and fitness, transatlantic flying and cruising, and cooking. The Thirties in Vogue shows us what the decade was like, as it happened."
