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 ;-)

This was a gift I gave to my daughter who had put it on list of "wants". She called me after receiving it telling me how beautiful it was. When I visited her I started looking at it and couldn't put it down. The pages are really beautiful and I loved the modern history of clothes that this shows. The colors are so appealing. This a lovely book with much to offer for anyone interested in the recent evolution of clothes.
