Royal Style

RRP $75.00

From Louis XIV, a shoe aficionado of the Baroque Age, to the latest club-hopping progeny of the British royalty, this colorful survey of aristocratic fashion through the ages will delight royal watchers of every generation.

The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton helped reclaim the fashion credibility of Britain's royal family, ushering in a generation of hip but genial personalities that appeal to every age and station. But royals have been setting fashion trends for centuries. This fascinating overview of aristocratic icons reaches back to the middle age, and from Europe to the Middle East, to profile the most renowned promoters of elegance and style ever to don their empires' crowns.

Author and royals watcher Luise Wackerl juxtaposes the fifteenth-century Duke of Burgundy's penchant for black with Elizabeth I's taste for virginal white. She presents history's first "It Girls": Marie Antoinette, Louisa of Prussia, Empresses Sisi of Austria and Eugenie of France. She relates how Queen Victoria's sorrow and propriety transformed her country, and how an impeccably styled American's love for Edward VIII upended the British monarchy. From the irreproachably elegant styles of Grace Kelly to Lady Diana, Jordan's Queen Rania to Princess Letizia of Spain we move on to the newest icons, the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York, whose faces and party antics grace the tabloids on a weekly basis. Hundreds of photos and a lively text make this irresistible reading for anyone interested in fashion, royalty, and the lively intersection of both worlds.

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT! On the eve of the 50th anniversary of its founding, the affluent suburban town of Chelmsford Heights oozes civic pride. But inside its ornamental gates, all is not as enviable as the town's citizens would like. Members of the Women's Alliance for Upscale Lifestyle, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness, in particular, are not amused by recent events. - A lawyer has filed a lawsuit against Chelmsford Heights, alleging that its Chief of Police wrongfully arrested his client for shoplifting from Chelmsford Heights Mall. Liability could amount to tens of millions of dollars, and imperil various features of the town's civic lifestyle, including erection of gates at all its entrances. - An embittered former resident, and former wife of the mall's owner, who now owns a rundown cemetery in the adjoining town of Fiddler's Green, makes life and lifestyle difficult for Chelmsford Heightsters seeking to reclaim remains of their departed loved ones residing six-feet-under the weedy lawn of her property. Some bereaved survivors plot desperate measures. - The Mall, a veritable "Temple" reflecting the town's most deeply held values ---- and virtually its only source of tax revenues ---- is still upscale after fifty years in operation, but now in need of a refreshed "lifestyle" merchandising component. Unfortunately, however, no land for such a complementary addition is now legally available. And if all that were not bad enough for one novel, a Special 50th Anniversary edition of the local Weekly Weekender is threatened by theft of the newspaper's historical archives. A young female reporter assigned to the story must therefor reconstruct twenty-odd years of coverage, possibly at great personal danger. Who stole the newspaper records, and why? Extra! Extra! Read all about it, in this latest of tales about this and that, and a girl named Henryetta, by Simon Plaster.
