About this title

Synopsis:

Beauty has history, and some of the most notable courtesans and other famous women who have personified such beauty over the years are profiled in this unique guide to recreating winsome looks that are, in a word, timeless. The vanity secrets and boudoir lessons offered alongside photographs and step-by-step instructions for recreating the famed styles are accompanied by actual period recipes and preparations for makeup and hair tricks. Biographies of the women relating their rise to fame, their lovers, and any falls from glory as well as engaging quotes are included. Among the profiled ladies are Dutch dancer Mata Hari; Madame Lola Montez, mistress to King Ludwig I of Bavaria; and Veronica Franco, whose life was portrayed in the film Dangerous Beauty.

Daniela Turudich is an expert on re-creating period beauty styles and techniques. She is the author of the Vintage Living series, which has been relied upon as sourcebooks by film and television costume designers, professional stylists, academics, and historians.
