Cinderella: A Fashionable Tale
Cinderella wants nothing more than to go to the ball, but she doesn't have a thing to wear! This classic fairy tale of the young servant girl who experiences a magical night and finally finds her prince receives a fresh and modern retelling from illustrator Steven Guarnaccia. Guarnaccia's stylised illustrations give familiar characters new life with a fun, fashion-forward look, using apparel and accessories inspired by some of the most famous fashion designers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Young readers will delight in the bright and beautiful illustrations and fashion enthusiasts will enjoy the references to well-known haute couture designs, including a Vivienne Westwood-inspired ball gown, a rag dress of patched-together designer patterns and Prada-inspired "crystal" slippers. Includes endpapers that detail the different featured designs as well as the year they were made.
Steven Guarnaccia is the chair of the Illustration Program at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City. His art has appeared in many national and international magazines.
