In metallic-silver DJ, which glows against the light, and with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in its Limited Edition format, Domenico Dolce's and Stefano Gabbana's "Hollywood". Their glamorous and starstruck homage to, and quite simply, one of the most dazzling books on Hollywood. With a brilliant twist that only Dolce & Gabbana could have pulled off: Every Hollywood star featured in the book is wearing (but of course) Dolce & Gabbana, one of the sexiest, most elegant, and most cutting-edge names in contemporary fashion AND haute couture. The book is conceived and realized as the modern-day version of Diana Vreeland's classic, "Allure" (first published in 1980, reissued in 2002, just one year before this book). It is an adoring movie fan's scrapbook of her (or his) favorite Hollywood stars, divided into six alluring parts: "Glamour", "Power", "Romance", "Red Carpet", "Seduction", and "Leading Men". The stars are A-Listers and include Glenn Close, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Kirsten Dunst, Goldie Hawn, Elizabeth Hurley, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Diane Lane, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Julianne Moore, Demi Moore, Julia Roberts, Isabella Rossellini, Susan Sarandon, Uma Thurman, Naomi Watts, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, among the women; Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, Antonio Banderas, Adrien Brody, Leonardo diCaprio, Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon, Colin Farrell, Josh Hartnett, Jude Law, (the late) Heath Ledger, Dermot Mulroney, Brad Pitt, Dennis Quaid, Owen Wilson, and Billy Zane, among the men. Except for "Red Carpet", which consists of "paparazzi" snapshots, all of the photographs are portraits, taken by the best fashion, lifestyle, and celebrity photographers of our time: Gian Paolo Barbieri, Walter Chin, Michel Comte, Patrick Demarchelier, David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh, Robert Maxwell, Steven Meisel, (the late) Herb Ritts, Mark Seliger, Peggy Sirota, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth, Albert Watson, and Bruce Weber, among others. An absolute "must-have" title for Dolce & Gabbana, Hollywood, and photography collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on the title page by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such double-signed copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: It should not be confused with the regular trade edition. A rare signed copy thus. Some of the world's biggest stars, dressed by two of the most brilliant fashion designers, and photographed by some of the finest photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. .
