Phew! That was a long title. Still, at least Vintage Style: 25 Iconic Fashion Looks and How to Get Them by Sarah Kennedy gets the message across.
A 192-page hardback from Carlton Books that's currently on pre-order (but released next week), it aims to offer advice on how to copy the 'look' of 25 most iconic women of the past century. Brigitte Bardot's Bombshell, Audrey Hepburn's Ingenue or Grace Kelly's American Classic for example, as well as later looks like cover star Debbie Harry. Each chapter opens with an image of the icon of each style, plus images of similarly styled celebrities or models.
The book also offers information on the vintage designers and fashion styles of the time, as well as styling tips, hair and make-up techniques and shopping lists to aid in acquiring vintage and reproduction pieces to go with each look. It also offers a directory of vintage and reproduction-vintage boutiques as well as hair and makeup stylists who can create period looks.
If all of that appeals, the book is currently discounted ahead of release at Amazon, priced at £12.99.
