Portrait of A Fashion IconBook - 2004
Weaving together elegance, delicacy, and femininity, Carolina Herrera has defined a graceful aesthetic that is all her own. Born into an aristocratic Venezuelan family, Herrera's fashion sensibilities developed at the age of 13 when she attended her first fashion show. From her emergence as a renowned beauty surrounded by royals and artists like Andy Warhol, to being known as the woman who dresses women who know how to dress, Carolina Herrera has established herself as a fashion icon. Through the celebrated photographies of Annie Leibovitz, Francesco Scavullo, Horst, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Mario Testino, as well as the words of friends, colleagues, and admirers such as Calvin Klein, Ian Schrager and Bianca Jagger, Carolina Herrera is a portrait of one of today's most timeless designers. With an introduction by Hamish Bowles, this book tells the story of one of fashion's most remarkable women.
