Product Details

Praise

The Smithsonian First Ladies Collection, a slim but lavishly illustrated paperbound book, attempts to juggle that national obsession with dress and the weightier elements of a first lady’s role, in both her husband’s administration and the larger society… Still, it’s the dresses, in the end, that make this book, just as the clothes have made the Smithsonian exhibit a must-see for more than a century. There’s something about gazing at these gowns, captured in all their glory in full-color studio photographs, that’s almost hypnotic.” –Chicago Tribune
