Synopsis

The Time-Traveling Fashionista and Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile by Bianca Turetsky

When Louise Lambert tries on a lavender Grecian gown at the Traveling Vintage Fashion Sale, she feels a familiar tug and falls back in time, arriving at the dusty base of an enormous pyramid. She's landed in Ancient Egypt...or has she? In fact, Louise is on the legendary 1963 Cleopatra film set, in the company of movie star Elizabeth Taylor, but her time there is short lived. When Louise gets her hands on an artifact in the wardrobe tent's box of source material, she is whisked away once more to historical Alexandria, Egypt. There she quickly learns that life as a handmaiden to real Queen Cleopatra is much more fashionable - and treacherous - than she could have ever imagined. As with the other books in this series, full-color illustrations by professional fashion illustrator Sandra Suy bring to life the styles of Ancient Egypt, old Hollywood, and present day.

Reviews

The Time Traveling Fashionista had me under its spell from the first page.
