Following up on her highly praised bestseller Men Before 10 a.m., celebrity photographer Véronique Vial completes her wonderfully intimate and revealing portrait of the sexes with Women Before 10 a.m., a captivating collection of your favorite fashion, cinematic, and pop culture beauties, starlets, and models before ten o'clock in the morning.
Caught with Vial's friendly lens in all their unadorned morning glory—and in the act of waking, snuggling, canoodling, bathing, getting dressed, smoking a cigarette, eating breakfast, or feeding the kids—are today's sexiest and most sought after actresses, models, musicians, and writers from the U.S. and Europe. The results are humorous, touching, elegant, sexy, and very, very feminine.
