Fashion photographer Roxanne Lowit, known for her sassy backstage snaps at designer runway shows, has finally brought a selection of her iconic works to Toronto. Her first Canadian exhibit, Toujours Glamour, is currently on at Yorkville’s Izzy Gallery.

As the name of the show suggests, the photos capture plenty of behind-the-scenes glamour and excess, particularly from the notoriously glitzy supermodel era of the 80s and 90s. Highlights include a silly shot of model greats Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista in 1989, and a retro Shalom Harlow in all her sultry glory in 1995. Lowit muse Kate Moss is the star of the show, and there are more than a few legendary shots of the model throughout the years. Visitors can expect to see a sprinkling of celebs, too, like a dreamy portrait of a bespectacled Johnny Depp back in 2003. Here, a look at twelve of the captivating photos on display.

Until March 15. Izzy Gallery, 105 Yorkville Ave., 416-922-1666
