Calling all fashionistas and celebrity watchers! Who designed the safety-pin dress that launched Elizabeth Hurley’s career? Who created The Supremes' psychedelic glamour? And what French designer dressed Jackie Kennedy in an haute couture gown with silk-embroidered bodice (gracing the cover) to wear to the 1961 French state dinner at Versailles where she translated for two presidents? Savor the delicious details in 100 Unforgettable Dresses—the dresses, the designers, the women who wore them—and discover their impact on fashion, popular culture and our own lives. Hardcover; 208 pages with 174 full color and black and white photographs. 8.38" x 11.13".
So extraordinary, the world still knows her by her first name. So stylish, her fashion choices—oversized sunglasses, glass pearls, statement jewelry, a simple tank watch—are as on-trend today as in the heyday of Camelot. One of Jackie’s gowns is currently displayed in our National Museum of American History.
