Deliciously dramatic... The Beautiful Fall crackles with excitement. -New York Times Book Review

In the 1970s, Paris fashion exploded like a champagne bottle left out in the sun. Amid sequins and longing, celebrities and aspirants flocked to the heart of chic, and Paris became a hothouse of revelry, intrigue, and searing ambition. At the center of it all were fashion's most beloved luminaries - Yves Saint Laurent, the reclusive enfant terrible, and Karl Lagerfeld, the flamboyant freelancer with a talent for reinvention - and they divided Paris into two fabulous halves. Their enduring rivalry is chronicled in this dazzling expos of an era: of social ambitions, shared obsessions, and the mesmerizing quest for beauty.


Fascinating. -New York Times


Addictive. -Philadelphia Inquirer


It's like US Weekly, 1970s style. -Gotham


A story constructed as exquisitely as a couture dress. . . . It moves stylishly forward, with frequent over-the-shoulder glances at some very dishy background. -Boston Globe
