“A must for fashion students and followers alike.” -Susannah Frankel, fashion director, The Independent. True style transcends fashion. Style is innovation, creation, and inspiration-with a personal twist. But the ability to find such inspiration and blend it into a signature wardrobe is what sets real style makers apart. With her sharp eye and clever pen, long time fashion editor and style maven Elizabeth Walker navigates fashion devotees through the recurring themes that define the essence of style. She juxtaposes more than 450 exhilarating images, from 1865 to the present and from street fashion to haute couture.
These iconic looks from famous stars and anonymous fashionistas alike include Diana Ross’s striped jumpsuit, Marilyn Monroe’s simple sheath dress, Louis Armstrong’s argyle socks, Kate Moss’s bondage dress, Tom Selleck’s Magnum P.I.-era jeans, Raquel Welch’s itsy-bitsy bikini, Jackie O’s embroidered peasant blouse, Lauren Hutton’s menswear suit, and Farrah Fawcett’s chain-mail tank dress, as well as leopard-print sunglasses, platform clogs, and a natty fedora.
Divided into thirteen categories ranging from accessories to menswear, prints to denim, and exotic influences to animal motifs-these photographs will guide readers to create their own unique look.
