"Working for the biggest names in sewing and press around the world, the artist Marc-Antoine Coulon celebrates fashion and the Parisian spirit in this glamorous and evocative book, the first devoted to his work. This anthology is an irreverent and colorful walk in his 'Paris' which brings together portraits of famous and more personal people, sketches of parades and views of Parisian places that are dear to him. He captures the essence in a few ink strokes, like his unique and timeless artistic style, sensitive and insolent, assertive, immediately recognizable. Marc-Antoine Coulon draws for international magazines such as Vogue, Madame Figaro, Harper's Bazaar, Town and Country and Vanity Fair, as well as for luxury and fashion houses."--Publisher's website (viewed October 8, 2019).

Black America Body Beautiful How The African American Image Is Changing Fashion Fitness And Other Industries

Despite all the medical and media attention focused on the rate of overweight and obesity in the African American population, African American images and body types are greatly influencing changes in the fashion, fitness, advertising, television and movie industries. This is because overweight, like beauty, can be in the eye of the beholder. Most research studies investigating attitudes about body image and body type among African Americans have shown they are more satisfied with their bodies than are their white counterparts and that there appears to be a wider range of acceptable body shapes and weights, and a more flexible standard of attractiveness, among black Americans as compared to whites. That fact is not being lost on leaders of industries that might profit from understanding this wider range of beauty, as well as playing to it. In this book, medical anthropologist Eric Bailey introduces and explains the self-acceptance and body image satisfaction of African Americans, and traces how that has spurred changes in industry. His book fills the void of scientific evidence to enhance the understanding of African Americans' perceptions related to body image and beauty—and is the first to document these issues from the perspective of an African American male. Despite all the medical and media attention focused on the rate of overweight and obesity in the African American population, African American images and body types are greatly influencing changes in the fashion, fitness, advertising, television, and movie industries. This is because overweight, like beauty, can be in the eye of the beholder. Most research studies investigating attitudes about body image and body type among African Americans have shown they are more satisfied with their bodies than are their white counterparts. Most black women, for example, are of course concerned with how they look, but do not judge themselves in terms of their weight and do not believe they are valued mostly on the basis of their bodies. Black teen girls most often say being thick and curvaceous with large hips and ample thighs is seen as the most desirable body shape. Thus, there appears to be a wider range of acceptable body shapes and weights, and a more flexible standard of attractiveness, among black Americans as compared to whites. That fact is not lost on leaders of industries that might profit from understanding this wider range of beauty, as well as playing to it. Voluptuous supermodel Tyra Banks is just one African American who's broken the mold in that industry. The effects have been seen right down to department and local clothes stores, where lines of larger and plus-size fashions are expanding, becoming more colorful and more ornate. In the fitness industry, health gurus Madonna Grimes and Billy Blanks have been revolutionizing how people get fit and how fitness needs to be redeveloped for the African American population. Advertising has taken a similar turn, not the least manifestation of which were the major campaigns Dove and Nike ran in 2005 with plus-sized actresses (who continue to appear in promotions for both companies). In movies and on television shows, the African American beautiful body image has followed suit. In this book, medical anthropologist Eric Bailey introduces and explains the self-acceptance and body image satisfaction of African Americans, and traces how that has spurred changes in industry. His book fills the void of scientific evidence to enhance the understanding of African Americans' perceptions related to body image and beauty—and is the first to document these issues from the perspective of an African American male.

How the City of Light gave her lessons in life: an Australian beauty journalist shares her obsession with Paris - the city that has been her guide through a lifelong journey of self-discovery. Katrina Lawrence first fell in love with Paris at the age of five, and since then her roads have continually led her back to this most beautiful of cities. Taking us on a journey around Paris's most spectacular sights, hidden secrets and most beguiling nooks and crannies, Katrina tells us the story of why this city has been her constant inspiration through all stages of life. Musing on everything Parisian, from femininity to feminism, politics to perfume, and of course, those stylish Parisiennes who captivate us, from Brigitte Bardot and Madame de Pompadour to Simone de Beauvoir and Catherine de Medici, Katrina shares the essential life lessons that Paris has taught her. Written with warmth, gaiety, elegance and insight, Paris Dreaming is the ultimate chic, personal and charming memoir - not just for women who love Paris, but for anyone in search of that elusive good life. 'A delightful memoir and ode to the City of Light, Paris Dreaming celebrates French joie de vivre and the irresistible beauty of Paris in all its glorious guises. As Katrina learns to savour every second and rejoice in life's simple pleasures, we are treated to stylish, satisfying slices of my favourite city, topped with tales as rich and fabulous as a classic Parisian pastry.' Jane Paech, A Family in Paris 'La vie est faite de petits bonheurs'. I'm just learning what one of Katrina Lawrence's favourite French phrases is and I love it too. 'Life is made of small joys; enjoy the little things'. Well, this book is where I'll start, to sit and share her love of this magical city. I'm taking notes. I'm dreaming. Her dream has inspired a whole new reality for this romantic.' Catriona Rowntree 'A beautiful ode to a beautiful city. Katrina's love for and incredible knowledge about the City of Light oozes from every sentence. Perfect for Paris virgins and veterans alike. (I challenge even the staunchest Paris-o-phile not to learn something from every chapter!)' Yasmin Boland, Moonology

Paris has been the international capital of fashion for more than 300 years. Even before the rise of the haute couture, Parisians were notorious for their obsession with fashion, and foreigners eagerly followed their lead. From Charles Frederick Worth to Gabrielle "Coco†? Chanel, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent, fashion history is dominated by the names of Parisian couturiers. But Valerie Steele's Paris Fashion is much more than just a history of great designers. This fascinating book demonstrates that the success of Paris ultimately rests on the strength of its fashion culture – created by a host of fashion performers and spectators, including actresses, dandies, milliners, artists, and writers. First published in 1988 to great international acclaim, this pioneering book has now been completely revised and brought up to date, encompassing the rise of fashion's multiple world cities in the 21st century. Lavishly illustrated, deeply learned, and elegantly written, Valerie Steele's masterwork explores with brilliance and flair why Paris remains the capital of fashion.
