"Vogue" is the fourteenth single released by Ayumi Hamasaki on April 26, 2000. It was Hamasaki's first song to feature on her first Kose Visee commercial. Although it did not reach the #1 position on the Oricon charts, the single was very successful, selling over 350,000 copies in its first week and over 760,000 copies to date. It also featured a B-side, rare for Hamasaki in those days.

Music video[edit]

The music video for vogue was directed by Takeishi Wataru. It's the first part of the "vogue/Far away/SEASONS" trilogy PV. The vogue part shows two children in a post-apocalyptic world finding a sketchbook buried underground. The sketches show Hamasaki singing the song.
