By Harold Koda and Kohle Yohannan

Model as Muse explores the relationship between fashion and models at the forefront of style and femininity. Featuring a brief historical overview of the supermodel, Koda and Yohannan begin the book with early twentieth century style influences and continue through present day fashions. Past icons like Dorian Leigh, Sunny Harnett, and Twiggy are featured alongside contemporary models like Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and Kate Moss. Designs from Christian Dior and Balenciaga in the 1950s; Yves Saint Laurent and Cardin in the 1960s; Christian Lacroix and Calvin Klein in the 1980s; and, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen in the 1990s were often inspired by models and their influence on the changing face of the feminine ideal.
