Synopsis: This is an illustrated book offering a journey through the wardrobes of the twentieth-century's best dressed women. Fashion is approached season by season describing with detail the evolution of style, illustrating how fashion can act as a barometer of social change. Why did Edwardian women change six times a day? Why did flappers mimic adolescent boys? How did The Great Depression affect hemlines? Why did women retreat back into corsets after the war? Were London's punks using dress as a language of rebellion? The author contends that answers to these questions contribute to historians understanding of a period.

From Library Journal: That this detailed year-by-year survey is based on Vogue is both its strength and its weakness. Because Vogue has been at the center of 20th-century fashion, the myriad photographs selected from its pages--and spanning the years 1909 to 1989--are an invaluable chronicle. The magazine also provides a solid historic base for the text. Yet like Vogue, this book covers only women's fashion and views it only from the Vogue viewpoint, which is not necessarily that of the average person. In contrast, Elizabeth Ewing's History of Twentieth Century Fashion (Barnes & Noble, 1986) offers a broader perspective by including inexpensive, ready-to-wear fashions. Nevertheless, the use of diaries, memoirs, and historical documents combine with the author's able analysis to create an impressive work valuable to social historians, costume designers, and other followers of high fashion.
