Beau Brummell: This Charming Man
Beau Brummell was a man whose name has become synonymous with wit, decadence, fine tailoring, and fashion. A socialite and style icon, who was a contemporary of Lord Byron, Brummell was singly responsible for changing forever the way men dress - inventing, in effect, the modern suit. He is the man who convinced the Prince of Wales to change his dress from Regency Fop - painted face, powdered wig, brightly-colored jackets - to the more streamlined, natural look of the 'Dandical Body'. The story of the man inside the suit, the scandalous behavior of London's high society, his meteoric rise and spectacular fall.
