Movies are the ultimate inspiration for fashion. In Dressing for the Dark: From the Silver Screen to the Red Carpet, celebrity stylist Kate Young draws inspiration from iconic fashion moments in film to choose the most influential and successful eveningwear moments of all-time. In her first-ever book, Young offers invaluable insight as to why these key looks were so definitive and are worth revisiting today for that special night out. The book is divided into the five essential eveningwear themes that every woman who dresses for the dark should be acquainted with: the Cocktail Dress, Dressing Sexy, the Black Dress, Fashion Forward, and Black Tie. Spanning classic moments such as Elizabeth Taylor in a white silk chiffon dress in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Julia Roberts in that iconic red gown in Pretty Woman, to Keira Knightley in the unforgettable emerald silk gown worn in Atonement, Young reminds of us dresses we never want to forget. Complete with a directory of go-tos and must-haves for any evening affair, this book is an accessory no woman will want to dress for the dark without.
