This is a cute variation on the Sleeping Beauty legend, with numerous allusions to the fashion world. The Prince of this story is, of course, designer Christian Lacroix. The "A-list fairies" are invited to Beauty's Christening, but the Fairy of Seasons Past is angered that she is not offered a front row seat. Like the traditional fairy tale, the evil fairy curses Beauty to die from pricking her finger on a spinning needle on her sixteenth birthday. Beauty's parents ban all needles in the town, leading to boring, shapeless clothing throughout the land. The book takes real biographical elements of Christian Lacroix's life. His Golden Thimble award is used to save Sleeping Beauty, and the land is filled with beautiful, ornate clothing once more. The illustrations done by Lacroix are the highlight of this creative and beautiful book.
