Extreme Beauty: The Body Transformed
Harold Koda

Fashion can undoubtedly be seen as the practice of some of the most extreme strategies to conform to shifting concepts of the physical ideal. In five sections - Neck and Shoulders, Chest, Waist, Hips, and Feet - Extreme Beauty surveys fashion's literal imprint on the body while tracing the history of clothing styles. In his book Harold Koda, curator of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, follows a versatile range of beauty concepts illustrated with marvelous photographs, drawings, paintings, and prints.
