My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Paris, at the dawn of the modern age:
Prince Sebastian is looking for a bride―or rather, his parents are looking for one for him. Sebastian is too busy hiding his secret life from everyone. At night he puts on daring dresses and takes Paris by storm as the fabulous Lady Crystallia―the hottest fashion icon in the world capital of fashion!
Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances―one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone’s secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend? Jen Wang weaves an exuberantly romantic tale of identity, young love, art, and family. A fairy tale for any age, The Prince and the Dressmaker will steal your heart.
Frances, who is a poor seamstress is asked to work for Prince Sebastian and secretly make gorgeous dresses for him to wear. No one really knows that he likes to wear dresses other than one person, and later, Frances. Frances, though, wants to be a famous fashion designer, but she can’t be famous if she works secretly for Sebastian, who nightly, wears the dresses Frances designs and works as a fashion model known as Lady Crystallia.
This book was super adorbs! I genuinely loved it so, so much. I loved every page of it. I really think I should start reading more graphic novels because I have only read three until now and I loved all three of them.
This book was full of beautiful, cute and heartwarming moments. I loved the art – it was gorgeous and colorful and hands down amazing – and the story!
I loved all the characters in the book. I just adored Sebastian’s father so much! When I read that ending to the story I was so happy that I had tears streaming down my eyes, even though this book made me smile from ear to ear for the best part.
I recommend this graphic novel to everyone because it is literally the best thing I’ve read in a long, long time. I just adored every page of it and I can’t stop craving more.
