Star Style: Hollywood Legends as Fashion Icons

Posted on

Star Style: Hollywood Legends as Fashion Icons Patty Fox (Angel City Press, $23.95) You’d be nuts not to be leery of a book whose author was inspired by Cybill Shepherd’s sporting sneakers at a 1985 awards show. But oddly, from such inelegant beginnings a fairly decent resource for fashion junkies has been born—young fashion junkies, that is. Mature readers (who already know this stuff) will be bored to their Blahniks by these 10 satiny-smooth bios of star style makers, including Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Katharine Hepburn, and Lucille Ball. But for the House of Style set, this is an eye-opening and (with all those nice black-and-white photos) eye-pleasing look at how Hollywood shaped fashion and vice versa. B+Erica K. Cardozo
