Book Summary

Copying the look of the world's celebrities and stars is a recurring feature of magazines and blogs. Here we take a vintage view, looking back at the 25 most iconic women of the past century and how to emulate their looks with up-to-the minute fashion advice. Each look, whether it's Brigitte Bardot's Bombshell, Audrey Hepburn's Ingénue or Grace Kelly's American Classic, is deconstructed. Along with key information on the vintage designers and fashion styles of the time, there are styling tips, hair and make-up techniques and shopping lists to aid in acquiring vintage and reproduction pieces.

Each chapter opens with an image of the icon of each style, plus images of similarly styled celebrities or models. Advice is tailored for each look; for instance, the Bombshell is all about simple clothes, heavy on hair and make-up, whereas the Ingénue relies on a fitted, ideally couture, silhouette. The book concludes with a directory on vintage and reproduction-vintage boutiques as well as hair and makeup stylists who can create period looks.
