Some of the most celebrated people in fashion are helping celebrate our 15th anniversary this year - the people who have helped make the site what it is as we've documented their every fashion move since 1996.


When I arrived at Vogue House to start working on VOGUE.COM at the end of 1999, it had been live 4 years and was already considered way ahead of its game. Under the brilliant and visionary editorship of Abigail Chisman, it had pre-dated MSN, and - incredibly - GoogleUK (1998) and, with a tiny team also working on and gearing up to launch Condé Nast's other digital titles, we pushed VOGUE.COM forward to lead the fashion news - announcing the launch of and in 2000 and persuading designers across the world to take on the online world and let us feature their collections straight off the catwalk in the days when they were still fearful of the counterfeiting potential of publishing pictures so soon after their shows.

In 2006, we celebrated our tenth anniversary by asking everybody we could find at London Fashion Week to toast us - which they very kindly did here - and for our 15th we wanted to create a proper online party for you to enjoy.

Asking each contributor for 15 suggestions, we've put together what I like to imagine as the conversation for a fashion party - ask Kate Moss about her favourite British Vogue covers; Mario Testino for his favourite art galleries all over the world; well-travelled Christian Louboutin for his list of the world's most stylish hotels; Naomi Campbell for her 15 favourite photographers and the reasons she loves them; Manolo Blahnik for his favourite black and white films; Christopher Bailey for his favourite 15 songs... The list goes on - and from the funny (Giles Deacon's favourite cartoon characters), fashionable (Mrs Burstein's favourite dresses and memories of wearing them), frivolous (Alexander Wang's cheap New York eateries), to expert advice from Dolce & Gabbana (15 timeless styling tips), and Tom Ford (15 things no man should live without), our 15th anniversary celebration has become a kaleidoscope of high fashion's favourite things.

The site is all credit to the dedication of an extraordinarily talented and hard-working team. I hope our 15th anniversary is a fitting celebration of their brilliant expertise, of the amazing people who have contributed to VOGUE.COM over the years and of your loyalty and enjoyment of a site that we promise to keep growing and improving.
VOGUE.COM is the fashion world online - please join us in celebrating its 15th birthday here.
