Comments Unmistakably Mackie: The Fashion and Fantasy of Bob Mackie

  • Katy

    Absolutely beautiful collection of photos and sketches. DeCaro has collected some great interviews with both Mackie and the people he's worked with. My biggest issue is that sometimes the text is shaped along the lines of the costume, or in little balls, or creates the shape of a woman, and while it is whimsical at first it gets annoying after a few pages of reading. Great overview of Mackie's career though.

    I got this largely for the pictures of clothing, which were interesting & amusing; I think it was still written too close to the period it covers for any sort of real cultural analysis.


  • Sandra

    I found this when I was looking for Carol Burnett's book. Easy read. Coffee table book


  • Diane Vallere

    Heavy on design and imagery, light on copy, but that's what you want in a book-tribute to Bob Mackie - a taste of those fabulous spangly, colorful clothes! Oh, to be Mitzi Gaynor
