About this title

Synopsis:

The sultry star, Ava Gardner, was at the height of international fame and notoriety when this paper doll book was originally published in 1952. There are eight pages of glamorous clothes for the beauty whose real life romances were as dramatic as her movies like The Hucksters, Show Boat, One Touch of Venus and Snows of Kilimanjaro. 2 dolls and 65+ fashions and ˆaccessories to cut out and enjoy. Includes star biography by David Wolfe.

About the Author:

As a little boy growing up in Ohio, David was fascinated by his older cousin's collection of movie star paper dolls from the 1940s and 50s. The glamour of fashion and film resonated with the artistic, bookish child and set him on a path that would lead to a highly successful career in the fashion industry.

David moved to London in the 1960s and became one of Europe's leading fashion illustrators with work appearing in The London Sunday Times, British Vogue and Women's Wear Daily. As the 1970s began, David added another dimension to his creativity when he became one of the world's first fashion trend forecasters, and he is currently the creative director of The Doneger Group, an important fashion consultancy firm based in New York City. Today David Wolfe is considered an international authority of renown, the most widely quoted personality in fashion. David shares his knowledge of fashion history with student groups by guest lecturing at schools and colleges including FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) and LIM College in New York, as well as FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in Los Angeles.

Paper dolls came back into David's life in 2002 when he discovered the community of collectors and artists dedicated to keeping alive the passion that he had as a child. He is a managing editor of Paper Doll Studio for the Original Paper Doll Artists Guild, and a regular contributor to the specialty magazine, Paperdoll Review. David enthusiastically volunteers his talents at annual paper doll conventions, even hosting two himself.

Having ended his career as a fashion illustrator long ago, David is happy that paper dolls allow him to again create glamorous artwork. His recognizable style is a very deliberate re-creation of the lush, lavish technique employed by artists during the 1940s and '50s, the golden years of paper dolls.

Other paper dolls by David Wolfe include Doris Day, Donna Reed, Debbie Reynolds, Marlene Dietrich, Phyllis Diller, Phyllis McGuire, Patti Page, Connie Francis, Veronica Lake, Ava Gardner, TV Moms of the 1950s, Hollywood Style of the 30s-50s, Hollywood Style of the 60s-80s, Hollywood Confections, 1939 Hollywood's Golden Year, Adrian Hollywood Designer, Merrie Christmas, Femme Fatales of Film Noir and Fashions that Rocked and Wrecked the Red Carpet.
