Fun coffee table book. Lots of glossy, beautiful photos.

Very poorly organized - some 'dress ideas' are a material, some a silhouette, others a cultural appropriation. The author jumps inexplicably among fashion catwalks, royalty past and present, film stars and occasionally everyday wear. Most frustrating to me was the lack of any semblance of timeline.
