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.

I read this book on a long flight last summer--it's a fabulous read and a must have on the book shelf of a fashion maven.

Ooh, I've read this a few months ago! It sucks you into their sacred world of beauty & you can't help but feel you wish you were a part of them! It would've been so fun to be YSL's muse~~~

Can't wait to read this. My sister recently read it and loved all the fashion gossip. I head back east to visit her and am looking forward to borrowing it from her for a fun summer read.
