"The Dress" is a collection of the greatest moments in fashion history, beautifully illustrated by Megan Hess. Fashion is an ever-changing, ever-inspiring beast; but there are certain dresses that capture a moment in history, the spirit of a generation and the indefinable energy of a fashion icon. Megan Hess illustrates some of the most iconic dresses throughout fashion history that continue to resonate with audiences and viewers. From the elegant, such as Audrey Hepburn's simple black shift or Princess Di's never-ending wedding dress, the quirky, such as Bjork's Swan Dress or the Liz Hurley safety-pin dress, to the simply unforgettable--such as Marilyn's famous moment in white in "The Seven Year Itch." Interspersed with historical anecdotes, famous quotes, and scene-setting landscape illustrations which enlighten the reader of the social themes surrounding the fashion moment in question, this book is an elegant and immersive introduction to the moments that shaped fashion--and how fashion, in turn, shaped our lives.
