But she paid a tremendous price for her domination of the fashion scene, a reign that lasted six decades. She was driven by her ambition to build an international empire and become a millionairess. Happiness, however, eluded her. The luck that attended her professional career was absent from her private life. The great love of her life died in a car crash. She was wooed by an English Duke, a Russian Prince and by one of the greatest French poets of the age. The man she finally sought to marry dropped dead in front of her. She outlived nearly all her lovers and died alone, feeling a failure. This handsome new biography, lavishly illustrated with specially commissioned paintings and with photographs, tells of her extraordinary life, her tragedies and triumphs, and explains her unique appeal both as a woman and as a great designer." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, slight fading at edges of boards. Dust jacket has wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light to moderate general rubbing and rub/indent lines - no colour loss, small edge tear with creases - archivally taped, small area of surface paper loss at bottom inside of rear flap-fold.
