      • Product Description:

        A legendary emerald necklace by Bulgari is the common thread of this glam story, a story that literally shines out from every page of the book. It was wearing this necklace - possibly one of the most famous pieces of jewellery made in the 20th century, as legendary as the Sun King's crown or the necklace worn by Marie-Antoinette - that Elizabeth Taylor invented the world of glam.

         

        Dream jewellery for stars who fed our dreams. And they're all there in the book: Alain Delon, Romy Schneider, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Catherine Deneuve, Keira Knightley and then the jet-set of Guy and Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, Bianca Jagger, Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Truman Capote, Diana Vreeland, Yves Saint Laurent, Paloma Picasso, Tom Ford, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Maria Callas, Carla Bruni, Coco Chanel and Jackie Kennedy: an infinite constellation of stars, captured in rare, spectacular photos taken at the endless parties imposed by Glam Culture.

         

        The whole story of the 20th century, from Francis Scott Fitzgerald to Dorothy Parker, right up to Diane von Fürstenburg and Kate Moss. Society, aesthetics and costume are described with typical precision and irony by the young Milanese writer and journalist Carlo Mazzoni, in the best literary tradition.
