Cinderella a fashionable tale
Steven Guarnaccia dresses up the fairytale Cinderella with precious fabrics and couture clothes. Even Cinderella, the three ugly sisters and the fairy godmother in their velvet coats and teetering heels remind us of well known faces in the world of high fashion. One day they are invited to a ball...
As for Goldilocks and the three bears and The three little pigs, Steven Guarnaccia reinterprets a classic fairytale in modern fashion in his unmistakably clear and colourful style. In Cinderella too, the flyleaves provide a useful index to the designer clothes that appear in the story.
