Hajeski’s (Ali: The Official Portrait of the “Greatest”) coffee-table book offers up a timeline of Hollywood fashion, costume history, and the women celebrities who exhibited a keen sense of style on and off the screen. Spanning from the 1920s to the present, the book includes an abbreviated bio of famous actors—Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Lopez, and many others—and what their memorable looks and films were. Other parts of the book focus on the fashion influences from music and pop culture, prominent designers, and other people and projects at the forefront of trends that continue to resonate today. Readers are presented with intriguing tidbits of trivia that they can share with others, plus they gain a long list of films to check out as well.
VERDICT A fresh and appealing addition for film displays. It’s a foundational and fun overview for readers interested in learning more about classic and contemporary Hollywood fashion.
