9780140285949: The It Girl's Guide to Video

The ultimate guide-to-glam that will have you walking, talking, and dressing just like Hollywood's most stunning femme fatales

If you've ever wished you could slither across a screen with the finesse of Lana Turner, wear diamonds with the grace of Audrey Hepburn, create domestic harmony with the ease of Loretta Young, or get the guy with the allure of Marilyn Monroe, then The It Girl's Guide to Video is here to the rescue. The "It Girl"--that uber-femme of the screen from the 1930s to the 1960s--always did everything right and was the epitome of attitude, style, and class. This selection of 100 movies transports us back to the glamour of old Hollywood and the ultimate leading ladies--Grace Kelly, Bette Davis, and Greta Garbo.

From All About Eve to Mildred Pierce and Breakfast at Tiffany's, The It Girl's Guide to Video runs the gamut of the eternal "It Girl" experience on screen. The Guide is divided into 18 categories, such as "The Look," "Career Girls," "Get the Kleenex," and, of course, "Beauty" and "Romance." Complete with short descriptions of each movie, black-and-white film stills, and sidebars on topics such as famed, award-winning costume designer Edith Head and the infamous Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, this is the most hip, eye-catching, and desirable video and style guide you'll own this year.
