Throughout her illustrious career, Tonne Goodman has made the famous stylish and the stylish famous.
The Vogue fashion director has not only shaped the way women dress and see themselves, but she has also created a nexus in which the worlds of celebrity and style continually collide. Now, in Point of View, Goodman’s life and career are explored for the first time.
Organized chronologically, this book charts Goodman’s career from her modeling days, to her freelance fashion reportage, to her editorial and advertising work, through to her reign at Vogue. The editor’s recollections of some of the world’s greatest photographers, models, celebrities, and designers of our time are illustrated throughout, with behind-the-scenes fashion photos and shots of Goodman’s personal life.
Tonne Goodman has been the fashion director of Vogue since 1999. Her storied career took her from The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (where she was a special assistant to Diane Vreeland), to the New York Times Magazine, Life, Calvin Klein, and Harper’s Bazaar, where she was the fashion director.
Wendy Goodman has discovered and published stories on an astonishing array of private houses, notable for their character, personality, and flair, in her 30 years of design hunting. In May I Come In? she visits more than 75 that capture and express their owners’ spirit and passions. In this pantheon, imagination and originality hold sway: Artists and eccentrics are the equals of aristocrats and the mandarins of design, and every room has a story to tell. May I Come In? is profusely illustrated with superb images by leading interior photographers, as well as Goodman’s own snapshots and memorabilia related to her quests. It is an irresistible visual record of the art of living by one of its most penetrating observers.

Goodman’s career began at Harper’s Bazaar, after which she went to the New York Times Magazine and House and Garden, revealing the worlds of style and fashion. She lives in New York City.
