   schema:reviewBody "We know that a dame is a dame is a dame, and that there's nothing like one. Botanically speaking, if you will, a dame is on the other end of the scale from the shrinking violet. A dame takes command of her life, with ambition, initiative, determination, courage and perseverance - and the conviction that there's nothing not feminine about that.' So writes Eric Boman in his foreword to this dazzling new book of photographs of illustrious ladies. This collection includes a host(ess) of movers and shakers in the worlds of society, fashion, art, journalism, politics and entertainment. Boman's easy rapport with his formidable subjects is evidenced by his delightful, at times even mischievous, photographs and noted in his trenchant comments as he offers indelible portraits of a slew of legendary women. Here we see Annette Bening emerging as a bright young star, Joan Rivers hamming, a pensive Paloma Picasso, the sage beauty of Catherine Deneuve, a saucy Jackie Collins, and Anna Wintour beaming. He has captured the fabulousness of Ivana Trump, the allure of Bianca Jagger and the magnetism of C. Z. Guest. The madcap Marylou Whitney has a costume for all occasions, Marilyn Quayle is an Amazon and Diane yon Furstenberg is an Egyptian queen. There is an enigmatic Brooke Shields, the forever winsome Tina Chow, a flirtatious Pamela Harriman and a radiant Penelope Cruz. Boman's portfolio also includes artists Francoise Gilot, Jennifer Bartlett and the timeless Louise Bourgeois." "Celebrity insider and Vanity Fair special correspondent Bob Colacello writes about these women of wealth and taste and achievement, and about Erie Boman from the vantage of over thirty years of friendship." ;
