About This Item

Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc, 1980. First edition of this classic work which features images such luminaries as Maria Callas, Gertrude Stein, and Marilyn Monroe shot by photographers such as Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, and Richard Avedon. Quarto, original cloth, pictorial endpapers, illustrated throughout. Presentation copy, boldly inscribed by the author in the year of publication on the half-title page, "Lydia- I am so happy you like my book- So So much Love- Diana 1980." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Written with Christopher Hemphill. Legendary fashion maven Diana Vreeland at the urging of her editor Jackie authored a classic volume in the 1980s on the quality of "allure" in fashion and in life. Throughout Allure, Vreeland lends her famous knack for turning a phrase to an astonishing array of fashion, celebrity, and fine art photographs.
