Paying tribute to a century of female glamour, this illustrated book looks at such iconic beauties as Jean Harlow and Brigitte Bardot, and also recreates today's celebrities in the styles of the past. The book invokes the looks that defined the 20th century. Celebrity stylist Serge Normant crafts the clothes, settings, hair and make-up to transform some of today's most beautiful women. He re-creates Julia Roberts as Louise Brooks, and Cindy Crawford as a 1940s glamour goddess. Elizabeth Hurley frolics as a flower child and vamps as Mata Hari. Isabella Rossellini is a curvaceous 1950s pin-up and a punk from the 80s. Bridget Foley adds a cultural survey of each decade, from social and political issues to art movements and key style makers.
