This is a very dated photobio of the style of the lifestyle of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. As you might well expect, the photos are of their opulent homes, gardens, and clothes and the text contains all the glittering descriptions of these expensive things. Here and there in the text you can find some insight into the real people David and Wallis, as there are many quotes from fancy people who knew them well or merely attended one of their fancy sitdown dinners.

A very well presented and surprisingly well written account of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's style and their dedication to style. The writing, which in its shifts through time almost recalls The Waves, is remarkable for a book of this type and allows for some fascinating and sometimes poignant insights. Despite the focus of the book it is written with a certain irony and perhaps indicates an emptiness at the heart of their lives. Brilliant.
I'm pretty sure that this is supposed to be a coffee table book but I sat and read it all the way through. I have been reading book after book on the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and this was a book that quickly caught my eye. I couldn't get enough of the jewels- wow! She loved her gaudy jewels- all a bit much for me, but fun to read about. Off to go grab another book about her.

Some nice pieces from Wallis Simpson's jewlery collection are showcased in this book, as are clothes, vacation spots, and luxury homes. For me, this book is worth the money if you like those things. Also, if you're a fan of history, a royal-watcher, or a romance reader, you'll love it. Happy reading!
An intriguing look into the personal world of the Duke and Wallis. Uses photos and quotes from friends and acquaintances to describe their entertaining, their fashion and her jewels.
