The Schiaparelli book "Shocking" is fantastic.

Fashion Babylon, it's quite entertaining and apparently based on real events. I don't know if anyone else has read Swan by Naomi Campbell, if you haven't then don't bother. She should stick to modelling!

i've read the Anna Wintour book Fashionistasista, and it's bland. Unless finding out that her nickname is Nuclear Wintour or that she had an affair is "scandalous" to you then you are better off just reading the A.W. thread on here...

"The Beautiful Fall" by Alicia Drake. Excellent stuff. Really. And it has Karl in it, so I'd be happy even if it was awful!
