"Kenneth Jay Lane Book "Faking It" The glitter the dazzle, they fool the eye, but one thing is certain: they are all concocted by the world's most beloved and successful designer of costume jewelry, Kenneth Jay Lane! As columnist Aileen Mehle, known as Suzy, writes in her forward, "KJL is a sorccerer who turns rhinestones into diamonds and the blue, green, red crystals, and German-made glasss he works with into sapphires, emerals, and rubies that look plucked from an ancient idol's eye or plundered from a pirate's chest. His pearls would fool the smartest oyster."
Kenneth Jay Lane: Faking It, the designer tells us in his own words about his remarkable career and equally remarkable life. We learn about his friendships with, The Duchess of Windsor, First Ladies, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Barbara Bush, and Nancy Reagan; and with such legendary film greats as Audrey Hepburn, Raquel Welch, Lana Turner, Joan Collins and many more.
