About the book:

'If you've only one life, live it as a blonde' was the line that caught David Hockney's eye, although he later became infamous for the phrase 'blondes have more fun'. Kathy Phillips, Beauty Editor of Vogue magazine, casts an eye over the world of the blonde, natural or dyed, past and present, male and female. Starting with the history and psychology of blondes, Kathy reveals early dyeing techniques and the myths that surround the fairytale blonde. In the chapters that follow blondes of all shapes and sizes are dealt with, from film stars, rock babes, sporting heroes and catwalk queens to those 'goddesses' who have achieved iconic status. Among those featured are the sex kittens of the 1930s such as Jean Harlow and Veronica Lake; peroxide pop stars including Blondie and Rod Stewart; male sex symbols such as Robert Redford and Leonardo di Caprio; and blonde icons, from Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe to Diana, Princess of Wales. The book ends with a blonde bible, detailing the best blonding techniques and making this book an essential for all aspiring blondes and their admirers. Beautifully illustrated and featuring the work of the world's top photographers. The Vogue Book of Blondes is a celebration of the cult of being blonde.
