Gift for the book loving fashionista

If you've got that stylish friend who can tell a real Chanel from a knockoff with just one quick glance and who was the first one to call you (in tears) when Ford left Gucci, but who has enjoyed Lolita in more than its Olympia le Tan clutch form, a book is a classic, yet oh-so-appropriate gift. And why not combine her love for fashion and her love for books with a beautiful, coffee table fashion slash art tome?

None better than the recently released Vogue: The Editor's Eye. Featuring the work of world-renowned photographers such as Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and Annie Leibovitz and their model/muses, including Marilyn Monroe, Verushka and Linda Evangelista, The Editor’s Eye is a lavishly illustrated look at the visionary editors whose works continue to reverberate in the culture today and is a great first brick of an impressive fashion bookcase collection.

Another amazing second choice - Grace: A memoir. Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Evoking the time when models had to tote their own bags and props to shoots, fashion's best-kept secret Grace Coddington describes her early career as a model, working with such world-class photographers as David Bailey and Norman Parkinson, before she stepped behind the camera to become a fashion editor at British Vogue in the late 1960s and then onto America and legend. Unmissable. At least in my book(case).
