[a bit of edgewear to covers, minor bumping to base of spine]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the title page: "For ___ / Luck & Love / Mr. Blackwell / 92." Essentially a compendium of thirty years' worth of the author's annual "Worst Dressed List," which he began "quite innocently" in 1960, with an eye to skewering the fashion sense (or lack thereof) of "the overpampered, overpuffed, overperfumed, overpublicized and overdressed ladies of the silver screen [who] knew as much about fashion as King Kong."

[very nice copy, as-new with no significant wear to either book or jacket]. (color photographs and other illustratiions) Published in connection with the exhibition of the same title, presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the National Art Center, Tokyo, this lavishly-illustrated volume examines "the many visual and conceptual principles that unite fashion and architecture," post-1980, and draws from the work of about 40 architects and fashion designers from the United States, Europe, and Japan, among them Alexander McQueen, Olivier Theyskens, Frank Gehry, and Rem Koolhaas. ***Additional shipping charges for this heavy book will apply for non-U.S. customers; please inquire before placing your order.*** (Please forgive the somewhat wonky quality of the scanned image of this book, which reflects some misbehavior on the part of my camera; the book itself, as described, is flawless.)
