If Looks Could Kill: Cinema's Images of Fashion, Crime and Violence

Published by Walther König, Köln
Edited by Marketa Uhlirova, Elizabeth Wilson. Text by Caroline Evans, Roger K. Burton, Tom Gunning.

From stolen pearls to a glove left at the scene of the crime, an excess of red lipstick or the postmodern gangster silhouette, If Looks Could Kill explores the compelling links between cinema, fashion, crime and violence. Tackling themes such as Disguise, The Expression of Desire, Juvenile Delinquency and The Corruption of Beauty, this volume features a string of underworld characters (and their prosecutors) whose highly effective styling and sartorial gestures helped define cinematic genres from Detective to Thriller, Gangster, Film Noir and Horror. Edited by Marketa Uhlirova, Co-founder, Director and Curator of London's Fashion in Film Festival, If Looks Could Kill features an extensive line-up of new and exciting essays on fashion and crime in cinema by such writers as Tom Gunning, Elizabeth Wilson, Caroline Evans, Roger K. Burton and Charlie T. Porter.
