The revolutionary bikini, the presidential pantsuit, the daring red lip. Celebrated illustrator and author Ann Shen shares her striking study of history’s most iconic styles and the women who changed the world while wearing them. These radical looks – from the flapper dress to the Afro, Madonna’s cone bra to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissent collar – defied their time and demonstrated the power of fashion as a political and cultural tool for making change. This brilliantly illustrated book, in keeping with Ann’s signature art style, explores 50 fashions through bold paintings and insightful anecdotes that empower readers to make their own fashion statements. With a stunning and vibrant package, this is a gift-worthy treasure for anyone who wants to defy style norms and rewrite the rules.The revolutionary bikini, the presidential pantsuit, the daring red lip.
