As a fan of the 70s and early 80s fashion I found this book to be beautiful. The women capture the look of that era and I was as interested to read about the lasting beauties (Brook Shields, Yasmine Bleeth, Carmen, Farrah Fawcett, Princess Caroline of Monaco) as I was about the stars whose celebrity glow has faded today.
The photos are beautiful. 46 women: models, housewives, journalists, actresses, business women, singers, schoolgirls, they all pose and tell their beauty secrets. There is a before and after make-up shot, with some photos showing and describing the stages in between. Some women are heavily made up while others go for the natural look. Their interviews are as compelling as their photographs. They describe how they perceive beauty, or they criticize it. They reveal their beauty secrets ("I cleanse with yogurt and soap and water. I use a natural unscented moisturizer...I like any kind of cream I can get from the health food store"-Beverly Johnson, "Working up a sweat every day. And going to the sauna. And getting laid once a night"-Janice Dickinson)
As excited as I was to see these beauties and read about their habits, I'm not sure whether a teenager would make out the difference between the girls that lead helthy lives and the ones that don't. Comments such as "I eat next to nothing" or "I never take off my makeup. NEVER. I sleep in it." or "I never look at myself in the mirror" do not promote a healthy lifestyle in my opinion and they are the reason so many young girls today have anorexia, bulimia and self-esteem problems.
But anyway. Fashion can be like that sometimes.

Francesco Scavullo has long been a Mastermind and Hero of mine. As a Fashion Design Director, I have grown up in the world of beauty and fashion and as a young girl, this book transcended me in to the fantasy world of Fashion Photography..."The Supermodel" was on the rise and the idea that with make up and a little magic, a woman can become a goddess to the lense of a Creative Genius as Scavullo was....Beautiful Portraiture of some pretty phenomenal faces!

I had this book almost 30 years ago. I was surprised and happy to find this. It was in really good condition. It brought back a lot of good memories. The photos were so clear and the text was large. It's a good size coffee table book. Scavullo was one of the great photographers.
