About the Author
DEIRDRE KELLY has written books on dance, fashion, and pop culture since 1985. She started as the award-winning dance critic, pop music columnist and senior fashion reporter for The Globe and Mail, and continues reporting today as correspondent for the Dance Gazette in London, England, the Toronto-based luxury magazine Fête Chinoise, and the arts e-zine, Critics At Large, where she also writes on the Beatles, among other topics. Her previous books are Paris Times Eight and Ballerina: Sex, Scandal and Suffering Behind the Symbol of Perfection.

"VERDICT Rich with detail, this book will immerse rock and fashion history buffs alike in a satisfying intersection of subjects. A must for collections with a particular focus on popular music or historical dress." -Library Journal

"For the first time, the sensational clothes and costumes flaunted by the Fab Four are seen through the lens of a cultural critic who is a noted expert on the art of performance, author Deirdre Kelly." -Bronwyn Cosgrave, editor British Vogue, author The Complete History of Custom Fashion

"It seems crazy when you look at all the books and all the documentaries covering every facet of the Beatles' career, but there's been one gigantic omission: their fashion. This book closes the gap and opens a unique aspect of their appeal." -Peter Feely, fashion collector, Psychedelic Clothing for Men: Then and Now web group

"You'd think, at this point, there was nothing more to say about the Beatles. You'd be wrong. Deirdre Kelly's book on the Fab Four as fashion icons and OG influencers tracks their evolving taste as it interacted with the volcanic shifts in aesthetics of the 1960s and 1970s." -Nelson George, Post-Soul Nation, The Michael Jackson Story, Hip Hop America

"Deirdre Kelly has written the ultimate Beatles' style book. With almost every album, John, Paul, George and Ringo transformed their look from rockers to mods then peacocks and hippies, a progression that future pop stars, like Madonna, would adopt. The ultimate reference for Beatlemania fashionistas." -Jonathan Walford, Sixties Fashion and The Seductive Shoe
