DOLL PARTS. Amanda Lepore. Regan Arts, New York, 2016. Distributed by Simon & Schuster Inc., New York. 288 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781942872856 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Amanda Lepore has reigned supreme as a New York nightlife legend since the early '90s. Her trademark classic Hollywood glamour and her obsession with physical perfection has made her an icon and an international star. Born as a boy to a paranoid schizophrenic mother, Lepore always knew that she was a girl. When she discovered that she could make her body match her sense of self, it was a revelation. As a young teenager she met a transsexual stripper and traded sequined outfits for hormone pills. She transitioned at age seventeen, survived an abusive marriage, the death of her mother, and her work as a dominatrix. Amanda Lepore shed her troubled youth, recreated herself in the image of Marilyn Monroe-glamour, and emerged on the New York City nightlife scene, becoming one of its most recognizable figures. When David LaChapelle walked into her life, his ingenious photographs made Lepore an art and fashion star recognized worldwide. Lepore is a walking piece of art, and her very existence explores and questions the most important debates in modern society: gender roles, fame, beauty, and sex.
