IT'S ALL ABOUT THE DRESS, BY VICKY TIEL

"Growing up in the suburbs of Detroit, I remember reading an article in Life magazine about two girls who graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York and moved to Paris, where Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton opened a boutique for them. This fantasy fueled my dream. Vicky Tiel was my original inspiration!" -fashion designer Ana Sui -It's All About the Dress, by Vicky Tiel

"Vicky Tiel got her start as an "it" girl of the 1960's and has had a four-decade career designing clothes that make real women look fabulous. Her sexy, fresh hot pants and miniskirts were used in Woody Allen's screenplay debut, What's New Pussycat?; her classic design inspired the red dress that transformed Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman; and her creations are worn today by stars such as Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian. Tiel's own life has been dance-the-night-away fun, from her earliest days flunking out of Parsons to design on her own to starting a chic boutique with best friend Mia Fonssagrives in Paris, from marrying MGM's top makeup man to becoming Elizabeth Taylor's dear friend and a part of her longtime entourage. Tiel forged her own path and picked up some distinctive and hard-earned lessons from the rich, famous, and celebrated along the way.
 
In It's All About the Dress, you'll get a glimpse of what it's like to be Hollywood royalty (think yachts, tiny dogs, giant pearls, and peanut butter sandwiches washed down with Chateau Maragaux), discover the seduction secrets of the greats (from Kim Novak to Goldie Hawn to Warren Beatty), take in a little husband-hunting advice, and even learn legendary model Dorian Leigh's recipe for gigot d'agneau sept heures. 
Vicky Tiel will teach you to dress like a sex goddess, cook like the owner of a French country inn, and seize what you want from the world like an American star." -It's All About the Dress by Vicky Tiel
