Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Photographer Graham (Diana, Princess of Wales: A Tribute, Angle, 1997) and Blanchard, fashion editor for the Independent, have collaborated on a book devoted to the fashions and style of the late Princess of Wales. Others have done the same, of course, but Graham has followed the princess from the beginning of her royal life. It is even possible that readers will see some unfamiliar photos among the 225 color shots. Blanchard provides the informative text, noting where, when, and how many times outfits were worn, which were sold at auction (and for how much), etc. Even the most jaded reader will be moved when comparing early pictures of "Shy Di," dressed in fairy-tale ruffles and lace to the last photos of a confident and radiant woman in jeans at work on the Campaign To Ban Land Mines. Expect high demand: magazines will be excerpting this book, which is being published to coincide with a traveling exhibit of Diana's dresses. Strongly recommended for all public libraries and fashion-related collections.--Elizabeth Mary Mellett, Brookline P.L., MA
