“Nicely designed piece of fluff with some iconic dresses, but most pictures unremarkable. Enjoyed reading through it once, but not enough there to look again. Would make a nice gift for a young person just getting into fashion.” By Helen Kelsey
“I was disappointed in the quality of the book. The photographs were not of the quality you would expect in this type of publiciation.” By Ellen Carlson
