This beautifully designed and abundantly illustrated book is the first to focus on the career of Madame Paulette (1900-1994), Pariss queen of milliners and one of the most important figures in 20th-century fashion. Paulette's fame was international: her exquisite creations featured regularly on the pages of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, and crowned the heads of the rich and famous across the globe, among them Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Princess Grace of Monaco and the Duchess of Windsor. She collaborated with Cecil Beaton on the award-winning hats for My Fair Lady and Gigi, and over the course of her long career designed headwear for such legendary Paris couturiers as Pierre Balmain, Pierre Cardin, Emmanuel Ungaro and Thierry Mugler. A fascinating character and a true fashion pioneer, she is a source of inspiration for some of the world's most important milliners today, including Stephen Jones, who has contributed a foreword.
