“High-fashion muse and model Wallis Franken Montana plunged from the kitchen window of her Rue de Lille apartment in May, leaving the Paris couture world in a state of shock. The author investigates Montana’s tormented relationship with her husband, designer Claude Montana, the abusive “dark angel” who friends and family believe played a part in the American beauty’s death.”

Montana’s broad shouldered and hard edged look has been popping up all over, this somewhat damning article from a 1996 Vanity Fair gives some perspective on the time and creates a stark contrast with a more recent interview with the designer in Fantastic Man.
