thanks so much to my girl nelly for sending in a request on fabulous fashion must-reads!

a lot of you may not know this, but i love collecting fashion coffee table books. i've read my humble collection cover to cover, over and over! here are just a few more i'd like to make mine:

(1) 'style A to Zoe' : not only does rachel zoe have incredible taste, but the 'boho' look was originally her brainchild! read on to take her celebrity styling tips and tricks into your own closet!

(2) 'kate moss style' : need i say more? only the most coveted book of every fashionista worldwide, featuring the most coveted wardrobe of every fashionista worldwide! this one's epic!

(3) 'a guide to quality, taste and style' : tim gunn has always been my fashion hero! i watched each episode of his show, awed by how he changed the world one clueless lady at a time!

(4) 'chanel and her world' : missed 'coco avant chanel'? read all about the life of this iconic designer and revolutionary woman who changed the face of fashion forever.

(5) 'alexander mcqueen - genius of a generation' : mcqueen's passing last year was a terrible tragedy. i can't think of a better way to pay tribute the legend.

(6) 'rare bird of fashion - the irreverent iris apfel' - known best for her bright, kitschy clothes, statement accessories and huge round sunglasses, there's nothing i don't love about iris apfel's style. did i mention she's 88?

(7) 'stylist - the interpreters of fashion' : with so many aspiring stylists around, unsure of what the fashion world has in store for them, this book offers a keen insight into the good, the bad and the ugly in the world of a fashion stylist.

(8) 'on fashion's front page' - the book features the fashion bible's most iconic covers till date. a definite collector's item.

what are you currently reading? share it with me in the comments section!

bisou bisou,
