Best New Book: Tony Duquette

Everything about the late TD bespoke opulance, from the superfluous letters of his surname to his motto, "more is more," now the title of a new book on Duquette. This glossy tome by TD firm president Hutton Wilkinson builds upon Duquette's UCLA lecture, "The Enchanted Vision," and features layer upon layer of luscious photographs. The book also proves the versatile nature of his vision, from set design to jewelry. I was inspired to track down some images of Duquette jewelry currently available (Wilkinson is keeping the firm going). It's safe to say, opulence is alive and well. Have you ever seen anything so exquisitely decadent? And yes, it's all real.

How fabulous would one of those encrusted treasures be with a simple sheath and some heels for date night! I'd say they are reason enough to go out on the town! I love the color, and the green necklace is so me.
