A nice overviewI ve never kept up with fashion so this book was a nice overview of the influential fashion models of the last 70 years or so It s made up of sort readable bios of the models Each model comes with just two photos which really isn t enough to cover their careers but it would take a coffee table book to really do them justice Overall I liked the writing and the insight into fashion models and their influence on the world. I love this book.Nigel Barker did an amazing job writing this book.It is interesting to see how fashion and modeling have changed throughout the decades.The photographs in this book are stunning.I couldn t put this book down.It s awesome.
