Fifty Years of Fashion: New Look to Now . Valerie Steele








"Alia-clad women resembled 'highly sexualized versions of Darth Vader'...
like dominatrixes from outer space."

i finished this book recently, i'll put up the scans of my favorites soon. naturally the darth vader one would come first.
this is an Azzedine Alaia "mermaid" dress I can't remember the decade, but I think this was from the 80s.
As always, click to enlarge, I just noticed the zipper detail at the hood.

the other books in my increasingly heavy stack: china chic, in vogue, and dressing a galaxy.

any one read any good fashion books lately?
