  1. 4 out of 5

    :

    Not about Audrey, in case you thought it centered around her style. The first half is very good up until 1960;s then the fashion references seem to be more the bizarre, funky influences, not what the fashion houses put out that was actually worn by the culture. But from the 1900 to about 1964 it presents a very good visual history on the changing female apparel.
