Geoffroy-Schneiter, Berenice.
Indian Beauty, Bollywood Style.

New York Assouline: 2004.

"The movies made in the studios of Mumbai-old Bombay-are known around the world for their lavish style, syrupy music, and sultry dance numbers with gilded and jewel-encrusted costumes and sets. Inspired by the big-budget epics and extravaganzas of Hollywood's golden era, and colored with the vibrant Indian culture of religion and folklore, the distinct style has earned the moniker "Bollywood," and its unique mlange of kitsch and veiled eroticism has begun to influence art and fashion throughout the West as well. This book looks at the visual and narrative origins of Bollywood style as well as some of its biggest stars, who enjoy a mystique similar to that of the Hollywood stars of the 1930s and 40s.".

Hardcover. 6.5"x9", 79 pages, color illustrations, dust jacket. New.
