Description - Celebrity by Terry O'Neill

"Celebrity" is often compared to fame, but its linguistic roots also leave room for celebration and honour. In that sense celebrity is closer to star quality than to mere renown, the state of being famous. In this book we find Tom Cruise, Brigitte Bardot, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Joan Collins, Michael Caine, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery and people who have superseded the fads of reputation and proved their celebrity longevity. The range of Terry O'Neill's celebrity portraits reaches from Audrey Hepburn to Naomi Campbell, from Frank Sinatra to Kate Moss, in a true celebration of true celebrity. A.A. Gill's witty and insightful introduction to the book analyses what it is that allows these people to transcend their contemparies in the pantheon of the renowned; what makes some of them true celebrities, whilst others are merely and briefly famous.
