I just purchased this through Amazon. I was initially wary of the title as I've been rather disappointed with most of the fashion-themed books published this year and for the last few years (and I've been buying fashion books for decades including anything with the word "couture" or "Vreeland" or "Yohji" or "Comme" in the title). However, it was a sheer joy to read from page 1 till the end; even the acknowledgements are so well-written. The author is witty, perceptive, sensitive to the ephemeral pleasure and excitement of fashion shows, alert to the technical details or innovations in a dress, fashion conscious (as opposed to some of the new titles written by bloggers or associate professors in design with no fashion passion and no references in the history of fashion) - there is delight in a superbly apt description of the dress and of that very moment when the dress made that impact. If you enjoyed the passion of Martin Gottfried in Broadway Musicals (1986), then you will know what I'm referring to. All through, there are little known delicious tidbits associated with each dress; for example, the seams on Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's Narciso wedding dress (not a favourite dress of mine but that's not the point) and a wonderful little story about the cutting of the dress (which I cannot spoil for the next reader). One doesn't have to agree with all his choices but I was thrilled that he chose Anne Margaret's dress in the opening sequence of Bye Bye Birdie. The description of Carmen Kass walking in the Chanel rtw ostrich feathered dress is gorgeous. I'm probably overreacting (slightly) here but this is not fashion writing, this is prose.

I've had this book for three years now (I bought it March 7, 2012) and it is one of my favorite books. I've probably got 40/50 coffee table books that I've collected in three years. My collection is worth around $2,000. And out of all of them, this is the one I visit the most. Partly because it's a lot smaller than the million pound books I have, and partly because it's just that great. It's an amazing reference. I'm seventeen, and my life is based around fashion. I know more than people who have been in the industry for decades. This book has taught me a lot. It has information that you can't find anywhere else. The descriptions of Carmen Kass' Chanel dress and Carolyn Bessette's wedding dress are absolutely mesmerizing. I will pull this book randomly just to read one page. I haven't read it cover to cover, because it's fun to go back and find dresses you haven't read about. Read this. Experience it.

Now this is a coffee table book worth reading! From Coco Chanel's little black dress introduced in the 1920's, to Kate Middleton's wedding dress in 2011, this book spans the decades from 1926 to 2011. As the title says, these dresses are unforgettable - not necessarily beautiful in the conventional sense - but they are included because of their enduring style, iconography, popularity, and/or cultural significance. The author, Hal Rubenstein of Instyle magazine, reveals the behind-the-scenes dish about the creation of each dress and really captures, in concise terms, why a particular dress is unforgettable, providing the cultural context and craftsmanship and construction that makes it memorable. It's obvious he has a special fondness for the special place each dress has in the modern history of women's fashion, and it's his enthusiasm that provides the reader with a greater appreciation for the work of each designer, whether she is a fan of a particular dress or not. Why only 4 stars and not 5? Some of the photos included do not provide the best views of the dresses, leaving something to be desired. Plus, there were a couple of mistakes in the dates and designers of the featured dresses. But overall this book is a fun read and provides a fascinating peek inside the creation of an unforgettable dress.

I have my own “all time favorites” that I’ve watched on t.v. and in the movies throughout the years. They were in there!!! They were Caroline Bassett Kennedy’s wedding dress and Audrey Hepburn’s gown in “My Fair Lady” . It’s nice to have a copy of them in case I ever want to give them to a seamstress to copy, however, the book was a bit costly. Would be better as a paperback.

I guess when i saw the 100 unforgetable dresses I was thinking from the 1800's to present day. I would say that 80% is 2000- to 2011. If those are the unforgetable dresses we're in a very sorry state in this country!

There are a lot of fashion books out there but this one lives up to its name. It's not the 100 BEST Dresses but rather the 100 UNFORGETTABLE Dresses -- and unforgettable they are. Not only does the book include dresses that are memorable for their beauty but ones that are known for being "unforgettable" such as the curtain dress parody "Went With the Wind" (a riff on "Gone With the Wind") on the Carol Burnett Show. I love that about this book because it isn't just the best looks. I also like that it includes not only the celeb red carpet dresses that we've all seen but also dresses from films and the runway.

In addition to the photos are great storytelling. Hal has a distinct voice that is really wonderfully engaging. You know he just loves talking about these dresses and the history behind each of them.

This is a great book for anyone who is interested in fashion journalism as well as just fashion fanatics. Readers of In Style will like Hal's signature touch on each look -- reminiscent of his monthly feature "The Look." Again, it's not always about being the best looking dresses but more about the ones that you can't get out of your head.

One dress I thought was 'missing' was the Shalom Harlow McQueen paint-splattered dress. But I'm sure I'm one of the many that can say, "OH, but you forgot THAT dress!" The great thing? It doesn't matter because this is his book and his 100!

Great gift. Go buy it for yourself or for someone you love.
