Slim Aarons has established his place in the pantheon of great postwar photographers. It was Aarons who, carrying out his self-described mission to document "attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places," perfected, if not invented, the environmental portrait while photographing the international elite in their exclusive playgrounds during the jet-set decades of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s. This luxurious book is the ultimate insider's view of the lifestyles of the wealthy, privileged, and powerful. Presenting Hollywood royalty, European aristocracy, the grande dames of high society, captains of industry, media moguls, statesmen, and other luminaries of various stripes across a vast geography of opulent and glamorous settings, Aarons's photographs--some 250 of which are included here--define the Beautiful People and document a lost era of style, grace, and grandeur.
