Galliano is known for his elaborate and fantastical runway shows. Roxanne Lowit, who has been covering the backstage mayhem of fashion shows for the past 30 years, is known as the go to woman to capture the fleeting moments before and during the shows. Now Roxanne has come out with a book that is a MUST for any fashion or makeup fanatic. The big glossy book is an awesome beauty tome and wonderful documentation of the most incredible makeup of the past decade. (never has there been a better partnership than John Galliano and Pat McGrath)
Roxanne was always backstage when I used to work on the shows..... (Somewhere in her archive is a picture of me and Kate Moss when we both had baby pink hair -- she had hers dyed for the Versace show that season -- ah how I'd love to get my hands on that negative!) Roxanne has more energy and enthusiasm for her job than almost anyone else I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Check out her other books (this is her 3rd)....they are an intimate documentation of New York nightlife from the 70's on.
I got myself this book as an early Christmas gift.... but this book is perfect for your Christmas list!
