The "bar suit," a design inspired by habituées of Paris's Hôtel Plaza Athénée. The "Maxim's," worn by Rita Hayworth, seductively photographed by Horst. The "flower-woman" gown, glittering with petal-covered crinolines. This coffee table book celebrating 70 years of the iconic fashion house is so sumptuous, it's as if the reader gets to play dress-up with the most luscious clothes ever made.
