Wanna See Photos Of A Young Kate Moss and Smiling Anna Wintour? Look No Further Than Rose Hartman's New Book

08 November 2012 by

At Grazia we just can't stop delving into the fashion photog archives and finding pictures of the fash pack before they had their superstar makeovers.

It all started when we uncovered 18-year-old Victoria Beckham's rather cheesy modelling shoot from 1992 and we just couldn't stop googling old pics. We brought you pictures of Kristen Stewart, Cheryl Cole and more before they had their A-List makeovers and then last week it was Flashback Friday, where we uncovered pics of designers before they hit the big time. It's true, you can see Karl before the ponytail.

Well today it's throwback thursday, thanks to a new book filled with more than 200 old gems. Incomparable: Women of Style is a fashion photo-album, with pictures by photog Rose Hartman who has published in all the glossiest of magazines including Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and Vanity Fair.

There are pictures of (shock horror) Anna Wintour smiling and we're not just talking about a Victoria Beckham 'smile without showing her teeth' smile. THIS smile could rival Julia Roberts as her head is thrown back and all her teeth are on show. There is also that famous image of Bianca Jagger riding into Studio 54 on her birthday in 1997 on a white horse. How very super sweet sixteen of you Bianca. Hartman called it "the picture that encapsulated an era when decadence ruled."

Hartman's photography is famously voyeuristic, so you too feel like you're in Studio 54 sat gossiping with Jerry Hall and Andy Warhol or wandering into the MET with Madonna. Hartman said to the Huffington Post: "I fitted seamlessly into the room to capture them at their best. I was a fly on the wall!"
