9780061536137: The Cocktail Dress

Like "The Black Dress", this book will contain an informative, fun introduction chronicling the history of cocktail dress throughout fashion history, a wealth of images including fine art and photography, film stills, fashion editorial and runway photography, vintage ads, magazine covers, and illustrations by the world's foremost fashion designers, artists, and photographers. Examples range from the hot pink number Audrey Hepburn made famous in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" to the best contemporary renditions. Readers will see all the classic cocktail dresses designed by all the great designers, including Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Cristobal Balenciaga, Madeleine Vionnet, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Halston, Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld, Zac Posen, and of course, Christian Dior, who is credited with coining the term.The art will be equally diverse, including pochoir prints by Georges Lepape, paintings by Otto Dix, Raoul Dufy, and other famous artists, and illustrations by designers such as Cynthia Rowley and Isaac Mizrahi, created especially for this book.

Detailed captions at the back of book provide historical information for the reader that places the dresses in historical context.
