Not sure if this is really considered a fashion-related book, but what immediately came to my mind was The Outsiders.

The Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella are okay but only if you read one. They're all too similar in that the main character ALWAYS tries to save money, ends up shopping till' she's broke, and then getting all her cash back.

MODEL by Michaell Gross-
If you want to know about how the whole fashion/modeling scene started. It gives a lot of background info and even goes into the recent years.

NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY by Janice Dickinson-
Very entertaining memoire of Janice..........not many words to describe it but I LOVED reading it.

A THING OF BEAUTY-
Book about Gia C, her role in modeling, etc. A sad book to read but I ws entangeled by it.

There are some other good ones...just have to try and remember the names. I'll get back to you when I do. Happy Reading!!!!!

P.S. I Apologize for the spelling, I had a little accident and broke 2 of my fingers.

Karl Lagerfield: A Portrait of Dorian Gray

(From www.amazon.com)
"In his youth, Dorian Gray had his portrait painted and, because the painting wonderfully preserved a carefree moment, Gray begged for a trade-off: the painting would age and he himself would remain young and handsome forever. That's exactly what happened until one day, in a rage, he stabbed the canvas and died. What remained was a flawless portrait of youth.


Karl Lagerfeld has staged the core of Oscar Wilde's famous novel in his own way. He shows a luxurious Bohemian world as in the freeze-frames of a film. Young people celebrate, paying homage to beautiful bodies and devoting themselves to the moment. Right up until the metamorphosis begins. Then the young man changes into an old man and the pretty woman into her own death mask. This book tells the story as a film, reflecting a world of fashion and glamour, and suggesting the aesthetics of Caravaggio or the pre-Raphaelites. With this publication, Karl Lagerfeld, one of the great protagonists of the fashion scene, makes his contribution--not entirely irony-free--to the subject of the transitory nature of beauty. Clothbound, 9.75 x 10.25 in. / 88 pgs / Illustrated throughout."

60s fashion book
Hey I'm not sure if this is the right forum or not...I consider this education for myself but it may fall somewhere else so please feel free to move it.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any books that showed LOTS of really good pictures of clothing from the 60's mainly and possibly the 70's. I haven't found many books and the ones I have found have maybe 10 pictures in them. I'm getting really frustrated. There must be a picture book out there somewhere!

Not a really great book for going in depth on the sixties but I bought Swingin' Chicks of the 60's by Chris Strodder and I think it's really cute. It has a lot of pictures.

here's the website: http://www.swinginchicks.com/
