Blow Me a Kiss


Blow Me a Kiss Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is there anything more alluring than lips bathed in crimson red? An icon of untold pleasures, they're synonymous with style, sex, and even scandal. Whether pursed or provocatively parted, lips of every shade are a bold personal statement, while lipstick remains a timeless symbol of glamour and sensuality. Blow Me a Kiss offers a dazzling look at our fascination with lips and the myriad ways they've been adorned all around the world.


Acclaimed author and style innovator Alice Harris curates a unique collection of photographs and works of art that celebrate lips of different shapes and sizes, tones and textures. Blow Me a Kiss documents how lipstick has revolutionized beauty, with luscious lips painted in fabulous bursts of color, and created fashion trends from decades past to the present day. Packed with more than 80 color and black-and-white images, Blow Me a Kiss presents stunning images by Irving Penn, Guy Bourdin, Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, Marilyn Minter, Helmut Newton, Roy Lichtenstein, Man Ray, Elliott Erwitt, Terry Richardson, and several other groundbreaking visual artists who've depicted lips at work and lips at play, from lips caught in quiet repose to lips locked in a lustful embrace.


Blow Me a Kiss also spotlights lips so legendary that they speak for themselves, including music luminaries like Mick Jagger and Miles Davis; an international array of screen goddesses from Brigitte Bardot, Ingrid Bergman, and Marilyn Monroe to Michelle Pfeiffer, Esther Cañadas, and Monica Bellucci; supermodels like Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Bridget Hall; and a range of famous personalities that have long seduced and spellbound audiences of every generation, from Lucy and Desi to Johnny Depp to Angelina Jolie.


Through words and images, Blow Me a Kiss is a compelling chronicle of the countless ways lipstick makes a pair of lips completely unforgettable.
