A friend gave a hint to buy this book and I have to say that the wife loved it, being a true dedicated fashionista.

Not about Audrey, in case you thought it centered around her style. The first half is very good up until 1960;s then the fashion references seem to be more the bizarre, funky influences, not what the fashion houses put out that was actually worn by the culture. But from the 1900 to about 1964 it presents a very good visual history on the changing female apparel.

Love this book. I saw it in the store and then found it cheaper via Amazon of course. Anyhow, this is a fairly sizable book, meaning it's got quite a few pages. It is also wonderfully illustrated with tons of examples of how fashion has changed over the years. This is a wonderful read for anyone who follows fashion as it gives you a great sense of how we got to where we are in today's more modern trends. The text is even entertaining for me, which says a lot for myself ;-)

I gave this book to my daughter for Christmas - a fashion couscous teenager - who loved the style and history angle of the book. Lots of fabulous photos and historical perspective on fashion to interest anyone who follows trends.

Really a book for women that are into fashion and would love to know more about it. A friend gave a hint to buy this book and I have to say that the wife loved it, being a true dedicated fashionista. Detailled stories and pictures and a nice overview of designers. Missed some designers, but I guess a cut had to be made with so many famous ones.
