    4. Es lo m s cercano a entrar en la mente de Vreeland y entender su proceso creativo El libro es una colecci n de fotos, an cdotas y comentarios sobre lo que es fascinante para la autora No siempre es f cil encontrarle lo bonito pero el mero hecho de hojearlo es un est mulo visual Deber a ser un libro obligado para cualquier fan tico de la moda que vaya en serio y, particularmente, para cualquier editor que no quiera incluir contenidos mediocres Cof, cof.

This is such a beautiful book amazing historical photographs of the 3 English queens at the funeral of George VI, Isak Dinesen, Edith Sitwell and Gertrude Stein and fashion photos of every icon from Coco Chanel to Audrey Hepburn There was relatively litle text and the phos were so compelling that I didn t appreciate the narrative properly.
