FilmMagic

If you thought you left literature behind upon graduating from school, you're wrong, and we're not just talking about those snooze-inducing editions of Madame Bovary. Remember, reading can be fun and unsurprisingly, our favorites are fashion-focused. Take for instance, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, which chronicles the life and work of the enfant terrible--an insider's peek at the fantastic exhibit for those of you who were not in New York this past summer. But the McQueen tome isn't the only history lesson worth reviewing. Diana Vreeland's Allure and Richard Avedon: Portraits also offer a blast to the past. If your interest lies more in the present take a gander at Lady's Gaga x Richardson, or Carine Roitfeld's recent work, Irreverent. Whatever your preference, these coffee table-worthy books are must-reads. Here, our list of the most influential style books out there.
