"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." —Beyoncé Knowles
Makeup 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 Beyoncé Knowles!
