In ‘The Dress’: 100 Iconic Moments in Fashion, Megan Hess explores the memorable dresses that have shaped the course of couture in recent decades. From the simple elegance of Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, to the promise of the romantic fairytale in Princess Di’s never-ending wedding dress, to the absurdity of Lady Gaga’s meat dress, Megan Hess celebrates the dress’s finest moments and takes the reader on a decadent romp through couture history…from the haute, to the weird, to the hot.
