Fashion experts credit Coco Chanel and her "little black dress" of 1924 with bringing fashion into modern times. A mere three years later came the advent of fashion photography, led by photographers such as Edward Steichen, Horst, and Cecil Beaton, and fashion editors like Carmel Snow and Diana Vreeland. Jewelry, long a symbol of wealth, took on an added role as the ultimate fashion accessory, with Tiffany designer Jean Schlumberger leading the way. This fascinating, lavishly illustrated book surveys the parallel growth of fashion photography, from Steichen to Avedon, and fashion jewelry, begun by Schlumberger and continued by his successors at Tiffany, including Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso, to become the celebrity-studded industry it is today.
