Corners of cover are slightly used, otherwise new Publishers Weekly: The day after the Academy Awards ceremony, movie fans are as abuzz about what the stars wore as about who won. Who can forget Cher looking like a seductive alien rooster in a skimpy Bob Mackie outfit with feathered headdress, or Bjork showing up with a swan wrapped around her neck? Photos of those appearances and hundreds more fill this fun book showcasing an array of Oscar fashion from the 1920s to this year's 75th anniversary party, focusing on women but also mentioning the tuxedo choices of a few men. Chace, a fashion and beauty reporter, organizes the looks by decade, throwing in subject-oriented features on, for example, women who attended the ceremony while visibly pregnant, or the repetition of certain looks then and now. There's an accessible, magazine-like sense to the book, as Chace displays no less than two photos ï¼ and as many as fiveï¼ on each page, along with snappy captions ï¼ a shot of Melanie Griffith, star of Working Girl, in 1989, is titled "Work It, Girl"; an image of Audrey Hepburn in a belted Givenchy dress in 1954 bears the caption "It's a Cinch"ï¼. Throughout, Chace offers miniportraits of top designers from Elsa Schiaparelli to Narciso Rodriguez and sums up each era in an opening page ï¼ e.g., the 1960s were all about "looking forward, " as Psycho star Janet Leigh sported a close-fitting dress made of a sparkly fabric and Jane Fonda shunned tradition and opted for a dressed-down lookï¼. Although occasionally the sheer profusion of sidebars, tinted pages and overlapping photos is disorienting, the volume presents a comprehensive and most enjoyable look at Hollywood fashion dos and don'ts. 500 photos.

From Joan Crawford to Joan Allen, Katharine Hepburn to Cate Blanchett, the history of fashion at the Oscars is all here, in a no-holds-barred exhibit of how Hollywood has presented its best face to the world.

From Publishers Weekly:

The day after the Academy Awards ceremony, movie fans are as abuzz about what the stars wore as about who won. Who can forget Cher looking like a seductive alien rooster in a skimpy Bob Mackie outfit with feathered headdress, or Bjork showing up with a swan wrapped around her neck? Photos of those appearances and hundreds more fill this fun book showcasing an array of Oscar fashion from the 1920s to this year's 75th anniversary party, focusing on women but also mentioning the tuxedo choices of a few men. Chace, a fashion and beauty reporter, organizes the looks by decade, throwing in subject-oriented features on, for example, women who attended the ceremony while visibly pregnant, or the repetition of certain looks then and now. There's an accessible, magazine-like sense to the book, as Chace displays no less than two photos ?and as many as five? on each page, along with snappy captions ?a shot of Melanie Griffith, star of Working Girl, in 1989, is titled "Work It, Girl"; an image of Audrey Hepburn in a belted Givenchy dress in 1954 bears the caption "It's a Cinch"?. Throughout, Chace offers miniportraits of top designers from Elsa Schiaparelli to Narciso Rodriguez and sums up each era in an opening page ?e.g., the 1960s were all about "looking forward," as Psycho star Janet Leigh sported a close-fitting dress made of a sparkly fabric and Jane Fonda shunned tradition and opted for a dressed-down look?. Although occasionally the sheer profusion of sidebars, tinted pages and overlapping photos is disorienting, the volume presents a comprehensive and most enjoyable look at Hollywood fashion dos and don'ts. 500 photos.
