The most beguiling guide to fashion and style through the centuries now adds another 500 years to its coverage-so it's thoroughly up-to-date with the most recent international movements. From the simplicity of eleventh century dress to the excesses of punk, from the chic Madame de Pompadour to Dior and St. Laurent, this invaluable, thoroughly illustrated work showcases kings and courtiers, soldiers and dandies, musicians and models, adults and children. Informative captions accompany every color plate, providing significant details on the garment, the wearer's rank, and the period. Designers, photographers, wardrobe mistresses, historians, and anyone who loves beautiful clothing will find this a pleasure.
