Models Matter by Christopher Niquet

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Christopher Niquet has published his first book which grows out of his passion for fashion history, beauty and literature. The book explores generations of cover stories from Jean Shrimpton to Jerry Hall, from Lauren Bacall to Isabella Rossellini, Anita Pallenberg to Naomi Campbell, these models acted as muses for the likes of photographer Steven Meisel (who by the way writes the preface of this book), Karl Lagerfeld, Diana Vreeland and Richard Avedon, to name a few. They also inspired perfumer and photographer Serge Lutens, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, designer Christian Lacroix, producer Harvey Weinstein, journalist Andre Leon Talley, actress Katie Holmes or make-up artist Pat McGrath…you get the idea.

Published by Damiani, available March 28th, 2017 at Bookmarc, Baker & Taylor, Barnes & Noble, Ingram Book Company, MFA Boston, OK, Rizzoli Bookstore, Arcana Books on the Arts, Book Soup, City Lights Bookstore and Amazon.
