Fashion Legend 13 April 2005
By Nevada Snow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Yves St.Laurent Fashion Review" is one of Toim Tierney's better works in the fashion designers series of paper doll books.

It's wonderful that one of the dolls looks like Yves Saint-Laurent's close friend and muse, Catherine Deneuve (although this isn't mentioned in the text).

All of the famous creations from YSL's first twenty years as a couturier are featured: trapeze line dress, the smoking, safari jacket, art inspired dresses and ethnic looks.

Unfortunately, the later stages of YSL's career are not well represented. Many fashion historians give the impression that YSL influence faded by the end of the 1970-s, but he was in fact instrumental in creating the look of the 1980-s. Tom Tierney's book reinforces this erroneous impression by featuring very few designs dated after 1979.

One final note: doll two is clothed in a flesh colored body stocking which was supposedly worn under transparent clothes. Yves Saint-Laurent never gave his models body stockings to wear under mousseline dresses as such false modesty would defeat the purpose of celebrating a beautiful body.

I have enjoyed and collected paper dolls since I was a child. This book was a nice addition to this collection. Mr. Tierney did a lot of research in preparation for this book. His attention to detail is impressive.
Cute Book, Great for Fashion Inspiration! 11 April 2014
By ShaksMac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cute book! Love that it has the vintage fashion! Used it as a fashion-themed party prop/decoration so I didn't get to look through it like I wanted to. After the party it was a gift for my mom (it was her birthday and she is a designer)! She really enjoyed the books but didn't really have time to do the paper dolls. These books will be saved for future fashion inspiration! Also, note that these are not small books, they are about magazine size which is actually cool! I thought they were smaller from the picture. Oh, and arrived on time!
