Praise For Hot Pink: The Life and Fashions of Elsa Schiaparelli

"A studied account of the innovative and impulsive fashion legend that's likely to inspire budding designers of any age."


“On broad pages appropriately accented with shocking pink and peppered with well-reproduced photos, Rubin details Schiap’s tenacious independence (“The fact that I was obliged to learn things I did not care about and curb my imagination revolted me”), her playfulness in her design studio, her collaborations with avant-garde artists, and her commitment to the war effort during WWII… kids who “dare to be different” will be enchanted by Schiap’s indomitable spirit and fearless creativity.”
