Within the pages of V Best is the best of V magazine. V was launched in September, 1999, as the younger sibling publication to the limited-edition quarterly, Visionaire. V is a magazine about fashion with a capital F, and all the things that go with it: art, music, film, architecture. Here is a place where uptown meets downtown, celebrities mingle with total unknowns, high art converses with underground culture; all reflected through spreads, photography, and design. The publication of V Best marks V's fifth anniversary and the editors have taken the best-of-the-best from their archive, bringing together everything from fashion stories by contributors like Mario Testino, Inez Van Lamsweerde, Vinoodh Matadin, and Karl Lagerfeld, to talks with celebrities as diverse as Janet Jackson, Norman Mailer, Helmut Lang, Beyonce Knowles, and David Bowie.
