New From the Runway

 

 

Born to be Brad  is the story of Brad Goreski , the fun-loving, bow-tie-wearing celebrity stylist. Fans of BravoTV  have watched the reality star climb his way through the ranks of the fashion world, as he transformed himself from an assistant stylist into a full-fledged style icon.   Landing an internship and later a job at Vogue helped Brad break into the competitive fashion world and eventually capture the hearts of millions as the quirky and endearing assistant on The Rachel Zoe Project.

100 Unforgettable Dresses tells the tale of how a canny Gianni Versace helped an unknown Elizabeth Hurley become world famous overnight, thanks to the paparazzi frenzy whipped up by her red-carpet appearance in his now legendary safety-pin dress.  Go on the set of Top Hat, where Ginger Rogers’s ostrich-feather-laden dress began to molt immediately upon arrival, its flying feathers bringing the film’s production to a halt. With its wonderful anecdotes, fascinating facts, and just enough juicy gossip, 100 Unforgettable Dresses is a bewitching read for everyone who enjoys sensational clothes, movies, television, and music.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty    Published in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, this stunning book  celebrates the astounding creativity and originality of a designer who relentlessly questioned and confronted the requisites of fashion.

Cecil Beaton’s photographic work earned him a place among the great chroniclers of fashion. Witty and inventive, he also designed settings for plays and films—and for himself—and as a writer he was an eloquent champion of stylish living. Beaton in Vogue  includes articles, drawings, and photographs by Beaton dating from the 1920s to the 1970s. Beaton loved Vogue, and his contributions testify to the wit, imagination, and professionalism that he and the magazine always had in common.
