Hal Rubenstein: 100 Unforgettable Dresses

Hal Rubenstein, a respected fashion writer and one of the founding editors of InStyle, wrote a new book:

100 Unforgettable Dresses is filled with the stories, secrets, intrigue, and insights behind the most indelible dresses in our collective memories. Featuring looks from the runway, film, television, the red carpet, and the worlds of royalty and politics, this book celebrates the staying power of these gorgeous, sleek, sultry, and outrageous creations as well as the lasting impact they’ve had in fashion, popular culture, and our own lives. More than two hundred images, a witty, informative text, and exclusive interviews with the designers and the women who wore the dresses reveal the initial spark and captivating drama behind the making of each dress. Also featured throughout are extensive anecdotes and observations about great style makers—Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Cher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Cate Blanchett—highlighting the conception of their most spectacular looks and examining their lasting influence. (introduction of the front flap of the book.)

Alber Elbaz wrote the foreword. a quote:
This book is a gallery of dressmaking magic.
As I look at these women and these unforgettable clothes
I feel as though I am looking at a very special family album,
one that revels in the joy, the happiness, and desire
we inspire in others when we triumph in creating moments
of memorable beauty.
