This book presents the evolution of style and fashion photography from the 1960s to the late 1990's shown through editorial spreads, commercial advertisements, and street portraits. Look At Me explores the many phases that the fashion industry experienced; Naturalism took over in the sixties and seventies with minimal makeup and simple patterns, then in the eighties bold colors and bright makeup had its moment. Following the eighties, glitz and glamour switched to a grunge aesthetic with a anti-fashion attitude in the nineties. An amazing collection of archives that captured fashion's most influential moments on the British society.
