Naturally, many turned to what they knew best - fashion and beauty." "From the fashion house of Irfe, founded by the dapper Prince Felix Yusupov (who, as one of Rasputin's assassins back in St. Petersburg, enjoyed great notoriety in Paris) and his wife Princess Irina Romanova; to the Hitrovo House of Lingerie, founded by Olga Hitrovo, who was descended from one of the oldest noble families in Russia; to the stunning Princess Mary Eristova and the "society model" Gali Bajenova, who were the favorites at Chanel: Russian high society turned their beauty and discriminating tastes into successful trades, distinctively shaping Western fashion of the twentieth century." "Capturing the atmosphere of the period with more than 800 black-and-white illustrations, Beauty in Exile offers page after page of never-before-published archival photographs, stylishly illustrated advertisements for the new Russian fashion houses, designers' sketches, and fashion shots by famous photographers such as George Hoyningen-Huene depicting Rita Hayworth, Greta Garbo, and Marlene Dietrich sporting Russian couture."--Jacket." ;
