I have no word to describe the beauty of these pages. Serge Lutens is one of the most talentuous image-makers of these last years. You might have already seen a few of his photographs for Shiseido ads : in this book, you have a fascinating survey of his work and art. The beauty of the colours, of the make-up, of the objects and clothes... It's a perpetual joy for the eyes ! Lutens's work is completely original, far from traditional simple advertising pictures. Discover a world of magic, of fantasy, of beautiful (almost unreal) women... and you'll fall in love with Serge Lutens's visions too !

This is a splendid appearing photo chronicle of Lutens' images from 1973 until present. His images are most commonly seen as the stylized Shiseido advertisements. He describes it in the introduction as: "The imaginary where finery and rupture distill. Characters of precise contour, black essences, calligraphy of bodies..." This is an "art" book and not a how to book such as Kevyn Aucoin's "Making Faces". Visual observers, photographers and artists may delight. Those interested in the cosmetic techniques and products applied rather than the overall result may be disappointed. Overall a beautifully printed work of art that would make a memorable gift.

FOR SEVERAL YEARS I'VE ADMIRED SERGE LUTENS WORK FEATURED IN MANY FASHION MAGAZINES. I COULDN'T PASS UP ON THE OPPORTUNITY TO FINALLY OWN ONE OF HIS BOOKS. AND OF COURSE, I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED WITH ITS CONTENTS: A COLLECTION OF PICTURES DISPLAYING AN ARTISTS' REMARKABLE INTERPRETATION OF FEMALE BEAUTY. I WAS AMAZED AT HOW HE MANIPULATES FEMININE BEAUTY TO IT'S FULL POTENTIAL WITH HIS USE OF PLAYFULLY SOPHISTICATED & AT TIMES EXOTIC MAKEUP & COSTUMES. WHAT ARTISTRY!.
