From Library Journal
Hunt, a popular actress during the heyday of Hollywood movies, was a former Powers model known for her sense of style. Over 500 photographs from her personal collection--studio shots, wardrobe tests, movie stills, and clippings--provide an exciting visual record of a more innocent era in film and fashion. While some of the clothes are by famous costume designers, others, including Hunt's own designs, are less well known. They will therefore be new to most readers and probably more representative of what was actually worn at the time. Accessories, hairstyles, and makeup are also featured, all modeled by Hunt, whose beauty, charm, and versatility radiate throughout. Her wistful commentary recalls a happy career as a studio contract player that was cut short by the 1950s House Committee on Un-American Activities. This book is a gold mine of information for fashion students, designers, and old movie buffs. Enthusiastically recommended.

““Eeeewww. Fake Barbie® clothes.” Those four words verbalize the faint disgust yesterday's savvy kids felt when, in the midst of doll play, an inferior, generic, or “clone” dress or top suddenly surfaced from their sizable supplies of perfect Mattel doll outfits. The impostors were treated as tainted outcasts and were basically left to rot. Today, a younger generation of doll lovers is on the rise. These leap-for-cheap fashionistas gleefully embrace the very items their quality-conscious predecessors detested. Here, for your viewing pleasure or revulsion, are nearly 800 not-exactly-gorgeous getups and some of the downgraded dolls who wore them, mostly from the ’70s and ’80s (’80s collectors, rejoice! Your time has come!), many in their original packaging. Prepare to shield your eyes from clumsily drawn fashion figures, pathetic attempts at high-fashion lingo, and mediocre package graphics culled from around the world!”
The Art of the Contemporary Doll $19.95 Hardcover
