5.0 out of 5 stars The book I have been waiting for for years, 9 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Beauty in Exile: The Artists, Models and Nobility Who Fled the Russian Revolution and Influenced the World of Fashion (Hardcover)
Having been brought up by a grandmother who lived in Nice after the Russian Revolution when so many Russian emigrees flooded into the South of France, this book seemed like a fairytale of long told stories!
A wonderful book beautifully written and fabulously ill ustrated. I could not put it down. It is a veritable piece of social history, fashion and beauty. I believe it would appeal to anyone interested in history, fashion and people.
This is a book I will pick up time and time again. It captures the atmosphere of the period and evokes the tragic sadness of these emigrees and describes how the very rich had suddenly to work and use what skills they had.
A wonderful, wonderful book. I cannot wait for Alexandre Vassiliev's next book!
