Marilyn and Kylie and Michael Jackson and Fashion

Have you ever thought about how much music and film personalities influence fashion? Three new books brought this to my mind; ‘Marilyn in Fashion” ($27.95), ‘Kylie Fashion’ ($49.95) and ‘Dressing Michael Jackson’ ($49.99).

From earlier on Audrey Hepburn a la ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ springs to mind but I guess this phenomenon would go way back to silent film days.

Certainly the three books I’ve mentioned will provide some sure-fire Christmas gifts for people interested in fashion. The big surprise for me was Marilyn. We mostly see her in pin-up shots but in ‘Marilyn in Fashion’ we see just how elegantly she actually dressed!
