Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Francesca Tolot is the most extraordinary make-up artist of our time . . . The images in this book speak volumes about the intimacy of the camera and the willingness of one woman to show all the many, exciting parts of herself." --Beyonce KnowlesMakeup artist Francesca Tolot has worked with Hollywood's top stars (including Elizabeth Taylor) and for all the major magazines. But for 20 years she has had a special relationship with one model: the exquisite, chameleon-like Mitzi Martin. "One Woman, 100 Faces" celebrates the unique collaboration between Martin, Francesca, and photographer Alberto Tolot. In breathtaking images, it captures both Francesca's amazing artistry and Martin's stunning transformations over the years. Embodying and intimately interpreting 100 different forms, moods, and identities--by turns innocent, graceful, feminine, raw, sexual, and mysterious--Mitzi's appearance morphs completely, even magically, with every turn of the page. "Features a foreword by Beyonce Knowles "

Publishers Weekly Review

Beyonce hails Francesca Tolot as the "most extraordinary make-up artist of our time," and this provocative, phantasmagoric collection of images from Francesca and her husband Alberto's decades-long collaboration with model-muse Mitzi Martin is a testament to such praise. The Italian-born Francesca has worked with Elizabeth Taylor, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Beyonce herself, to name a few; in addition to the faces of Oscar-winning actresses, you've seen her creations featured in fashion advertisements, commercials, and award shows. Francesca's medium extends far beyond eyeliner and lipstick, including clay, paper, sheet music, lace, feathers, and gems. Alberto, for his part, reliably produces stunning photographs of Martin wearing his wife's creations. The collection begins with brief pages of text: Beyonce's foreword, an introduction to the Tolot-Martin collaboration, an insightful interview with Tolot herself, and words from Martin, the woman of 100 faces herself. The rest of the book boldly unveils the face as a canvas for art and a theater of the imagination. Its stylish, bold images will not only impress readers, but may also cause them to reconsider ideals of fashion and beauty. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
