This unique book immortalises 50 of the coolest icons from the worlds of film, music, politics, literature, and fashion. They are some of the most glamorous and infamous people in public life from the most stylish decades of modern history. Photographed wearing their own shades, the images speak volumes about how celebrities see themselves and how they want us to see them. From Jackie O, who kept a large bowl of sunglasses by the front door so that she could throw on a pair whenever she left the house, to Debbie Harry, who wore mirrors so that the corporate executives from her label saw only themselves reflected in her shades, this beautiful 120-page edition looks at the ways some of the most fascinating figures in popular culture dealt with public scrutiny.
From Steve McQueen to Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol to Brian Jones, Elvis Presley to Yves Saint Laurent, Clint Eastwood to Catherine Deneuve, this volume features stunning photography reproduced to the highest quality, with text from leading fashion writer, Lauren Goldstein Crowe.
