About
Veteran pop culture journalist Maureen Callahan takes us back to the pivotal style moment of the early 1990s - when supermodel glamazons gave way to heroin chic, when the alternative became the mainstream, and when fashion suddenly became the cradle for the most exciting artistic and cultural innovations of the age. Champagne Supernovas gives you the inside scoop from a bevy of supermodels, stylists, editors, photographers, confidantes, club kids, and scenesters who were there. They’ll tell the unvarnished story of three of the most influential personalities to emerge in fashion in decades - Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen - and show why the conditions in the 1990s were perfect for their rise . . . but also helped contribute to their personal struggles.

Steeped in the creative brew of art, decadence, and genius that defined the era, Champagne Supernovas is a "titillating ride through the fashion world" (Elle) that offers readers front-row tickets to a gloriously debauched soap opera about the losers and freaks who became the industry’s It Girls and Boys . . . and who changed the larger culture forever.
