Bustles and shoulder pads and hairpieces, oh my! This amusing tour of fashion throughout the ages exposes how styles delineate status (the bigger the codpiece, the more virile the man), trends often follow necessity (the decorative beauty patches adopted in the seventeenth century were originally worn to cover pockmarks), and fashion can be fatal (ladies' makeup often contained lead and mercury, slowly poisoning the wearer). Watch the evolution of waistlines, wonder at the scorn a pair of pants can elicit, and marvel at the lengths to which people will go to be beautiful. (SM)
