    Fashion historian Valerie Steele flexes her curatorial muscle by showcasing the most iconic dresses of the twentieth century in this limited edition tome. From Poiret to Pucci, Doucet to Dior, Vionnet to Valentino, Steele selects one hundred dresses that caused a stir either on the runway or entering a room and ultimately inspired new directions in fashion. Steele’s selection includes Paul Poiret's figure-liberating 1907 gown, Madame Grès’s sublimely draped goddess creation from 1938, Jean-Paul Gaultier's shockingly exaggerated cone-bust corset dress circa 1984, and Hussein Chalayan’s awe-inspiring remote-control fiberglass Airplane dress from 2000. The compilation is sure to receive nods of recognition along with a gasp or two of surprise and delight. Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline's Ultimate Collection.
