"Deliciously dramatic...The Beautiful Fallcrackles with excitement."-New York Times Book Review

In the 1970s,Parisfashion exploded like a champagne bottle left out in the sun. Amid sequins and longing, celebrities and aspirants flocked to the heart of chic, andParisbecame a hothouse of revelry, intrigue, and searing ambition. At the center of it all were fashion''s most beloved luminaries - Yves Saint Laurent, the reclusiveenfant terrible,and Karl Lagerfeld, the flamboyant freelancer with a talent for reinvention - and they dividedParisinto two fabulous halves. Their enduring rivalry is chronicled in this dazzling exposé of an era: of social ambitions, shared obsessions, and the mesmerizing quest for beauty.
