WORN ON THIS DAY
The Clothes That Made History
This stunning visual guide to the clothes worn on monumental occasions throughout history. This "museum in a book" will appeal to not only history and fashion buffs, but also anyone interested in celebrities and socialites, memorabilia, and pop culture.
In every case there is a newsworthy narrative behind the garment, whether famous and glamorous or anonymous and humble. Prominent figures like Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe, and the Duchess of Cambridge are represented alongside ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. Beautifully illustrated throughout, Worn on This Day presents a revelatory mash-up of styles, stories, and personalities.
