From one of Canada's most acclaimed biographers, a deliciously wicked and revealing look at five women who were icons of style:

¸  Eugénie, Empress of France

¸  Elinor Glyn, successful pulp novelist

¸  Marlene Dietrich, the most imitated woman in the world

¸  Wallis Simpson, the woman the King could not live without

¸  and Jackie Kennedy, the enigmatic First Lady who influenced women's fashion for decades to come

Marian Fowler takes us along as she peers into a great many wardrobes, hat boxes and jewel cases to reveal how these five extraordinary women wrote their life stories in the universal language of clothes.
