With subscriptions nearing 1.2 million, Vogue magazine proves that if there's anything a fashionista enjoys as much as shopping, it's reading about fashion. With both an insider's relish and a layman's exasperation, The Meaning of Sunglasses offers an encyclopedia of style that celebrates the joys, the silliness, and the occasional insanity of this relentlessly fascinating world. Quick-witted and blisteringly self-aware, fashion journalist Hadley Freeman conjures her inner Bridget Jones to ask and answer the field's burning questions: just how much animal print is too much? What makes Karl Lagerfield so nail-bitingly fabulous? How does one explain skinny jeans? Anyone with a slight to obsessive interest in fashion will revel in Freeman's gleeful, but always satirical, indulgence in all things fashion.
