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."

— Kirkus Reviews

“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.”
