• Book Bomb: Four Fabulous Coffee Table Reads for The Fashion Lover

    Doesn’t every Bombshell dream of coveting the nicest décor to embellish their apartment and houses with? No doubt a few of these fashion coffee table reads should do the trick! Out with the old and in with the new, duh. Stack up and catch up with this list of four eye-catching fashion book covers with equally appealing content:


    1)   Way We Wore: Black Style Then by Michael McCollum

    I came across Way We Wore: Black Style Then in a bookstore in Paris, and sat in a corner to read it until closing time. The book written by renowned designer Michael McCollum assembles over 150 personal and universal photos of black women and men depicting “style moments” from familiar faces— think supermodel trifecta Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks and Kimora Lee dancing around various night scenes. I’ve yet to find a comprehensive black fashion read that measures up to this one.


    2)   Africa is in Style by Berenice Geoffroy-Schneiter

    Now, this is a book we’ve been waiting for. Reminiscent, innovative, distinctive and without a doubt, celebratory, Africa in Style explores the rhythms of African fashion from the runways in Paris and New York to the roots of African designers’ folkloric and ethnic collections.


    3)   #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

    Light up your inner #NastyGal and get to page turning with Nasty Gal CEO Sophia Amoruso’s first autobiographical book. A true hard-knocks to fairytale story, Amoruso tells of embellished anecdotes of childhood and unemployment to her rise to the top of Forbes’ “Ones to Watch” List.



    4)   Savage Beauty by Alexander McQueen

    If anyone knows a thing or two about fashion, it’s trailblazer Alexander McQueen. The late designer’s innate sense and intrigue for womenswear translated not only into his designs but also his philosophy of women, fashion and beauty. Savage Beauty is a force to be reckoned with.



    Happy (photogazing) reading, Bombshells!
