• Where to buy it – from the $5 dress to the mint-condition Givenchy of your dreams!

• Learn where movie studios take wardrobes – and buy the same dress you saw on screen.

Extensively researched and oh-so user friendly, this guide also tells you everything you need to know to decode the trends and fads from the 1920s through the 21st century.
