This book covers the changing styles and images from the 1890s thru the 1990s. Each section covers the life & times, faces in vogue, film and media, fashion, hair and hats, cosmetics, body shape and underwear, and work and play for a particular decade. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a cosmetic junkie, fashion obsessed, or just a history buff.

Very inviting book. Beautiful pictures with great detail. Makes a very good coffee table book.

How have advances in technology influenced fashion? Rom the shades of lipstick available to why the invention of nylon led to the miniskirt, this book covers an intriguing subject in a highly entertaining way.

Interesting book. Ordered it as my study club is reporting on the last 100 years.

I ordered this book as a gift to my wife. She absolutely loves the book and keeps it handy on the coffee table.

Don't be to eager to dismiss this book as superficial, for females only or aimed at the fashion/ art set. It is a well researched and knowledge packed directory into the ploitics and social history of fashion and beauty, throughout the entire 20th century.

It would be of immense value to students of 20th century history, women's studies as well as an invaluable and pictorial journey for children exploring the recent past.

The layout is well structured and the photography, art and fashion plates are breath taking.

Even if just a coffee table book, it's far more engaging than the average trendy photo album.

Decades of Beauty is both an excellent pictoral as well as literary history of beauty through the decades. Great pictures that have not been often seen showcase the fashion fads of each era along with the fashion icons who are responsible for that decade's fashion hype. I loved that this book also gave equal space to the history of cosmetic beauty through the years. Its fascinating to see what type of makeup each generation "had to have" along with the "hippest" hairstyles of the day. The contents are easy to read and allows one to pick and choose a decade of interest without having to read the book start to finish. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a cosmetic junkie, fashion obsessed, or just a history buff. This would also make an excellent gift for those in the beauty industry. Enjoy!
I think this book had a lot of great insight to it , but to me it never got fully to the point of fashion . The picture selections could have been better too ( except for the Edna Purviance one , a distant reletive of mine ) But the illustrations were nice and the colors worked well . Overall , I was entertained with this book for a couple of weeks but now when I open it i know what to expect . In my opinion , books should be a fascinating new journey each time you open it . This book only gives a peek of what is really behind the fashion world . But i agree this is a must have book and thats why i rate it four stars .
