In Vogue: Sixty Years of International Celebrities & Fashion From British Vogue
Schocken Books 1976
Out of Print $175
This book is a must-have for any fashion-interested human. The images and essays range from 1900 up to the late 60s and is a veritable font of excellent information and visuals. I got a bit obsessed with some of the hats...the regal one with what looks like hair fronds is spectacular - unfortunately it's not actually hair but is a pewter tissue hat with jet beads and black paradise plumes. The effect is one of extreme elegance and unerring taste.
