Description - Isabella Blow by Lauren Goldstein Crowe

From her roots in an odd, British, aristocratic family Isabella Blow grew to be a legendary figure in the fashion world, best known for wearing Philip Treacy's famously outrageous hats, all the while hiding her battle with depression behind her wild signature style. In 2007, the news of her tragic suicide at the age of forty-eight shocked the international fashion world. Initially hired as Anna Wintour's assistant, before long she was overseeing photo shoots at "Tattler", "Vogue" and "The Sunday Times". But more than the work she left behind, her lifestyle - a wild mash up of AbFab meets Project Runway - shocked and titillated the public. Much the way Wintour herself is portrayed in "Front Row", Isabella was a creature of her own making, and she artfully crafted and reinvented herself along the way, showcasing the Lady Gaga look way before Lady Gaga. Even in her darkest moments, Blow retained her dramatic sense of humour, making her friends laugh as they struggled to help. Lauren Goldstein Crowe has written the ultimate insider story of a fashion world icon; Isabella Blow's extraordinary story, and the gorgeous images of her style will keep readers turning the pages.
