Rizzoli C.Z. Guest: American Style Icon

Susanna Salk presents the first book on C.Z. Guest, a true tastemaker known for her classic, understated American look who continues to influence fashion today. A grande dame of high society, she lived the good life and was photographed by ...such legends as Irving Penn, Cecil Beaton, John Rawlings and Slim Aarons. C.Z. was surprisingly modern and exerted influence over America’s cultural landscape for fifty years, whether attending her close friend Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball, dancing at Studio 54 or partying at Andy Warhol’s Factory. This treasure trove of extraordinary images celebrates her elegance and flair, from her days as a young bride, to her family life on her Long Island estate, to her accomplishments as a gardener, to her prominence in society, keeping company with everyone from Diego Rivera, Cecil Beaton, and Diana Vreeland to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. With insightful contributions by today’s top tastemakers, this collection is a must for devotees of fashion and style. 12.25" height x 9.5" width Author Susanna Salk Hardcover 280 pages Read More
