Fab Read: The Beautiful Fall


If you love drama drama drama, this book is for you! The Beautiful Fall: Lagerfeld, Saint Laurent, and Glorious Excess in 1970s Paris, $16.49, is well-researched by author Alicia Drake, and follows the lives of both Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent from when they were nobodies to the fashion strongmen they are now.

This book follows everything - not only the high points, but the low points too - and there's definitely a fair share of sex, drugs, and rock and roll (Mick Jagger gets mentioned a time or two). A good read, and afterwards, you'll realize - fashion may be pretty on the outside, but the industry itself can be pretty ugly.
