Christmas Gifts: Books for the Fashionista

There are 3 great books out there this holiday season, that one can either purchase for a fellow fashionista for Christmas, or books one can ask to receive, for themselves this holiday season!

I know I wouldn't mind owning them! 


This recently published book is my favorite from the bunch!  Who doesn't love Audrey Hepburn?  And what fashionista hasn't been inspired by Audrey in one way or another?  Read the product information offered by Amazon:

"Loved by countless adoring fans-and the camera-Audrey Hepburn is an icon, an actress, and humanitarian whose beauty and elegance will never go out of style. This luxe, high-end compilation, produced under license with the Hepburn estate, features 100 of the most compelling and iconic photographs ever taken of the glamorous star-timeless images by such greats as such greats as Sir Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, Norman Parkinson, and Philippe Halsman. In addition, the book includes an 9" x 11" removable print, suitable for personal framing, that's sure to be cherished by any Hepburn admirer.

Audrey's family has compiled these 100 stunning images as a tribute to the Hollywood sweetheart. Paying strict attention to aesthetic beauty, artistic expression, and personal significance, they have lovingly selected these photographs to represent the qualities Hepburn herself stood for throughout her life and career. " 
So who doesn't want this book?!  I know I could spend hours looking at iconic pictures of Audrey, and what a great tool to use to help guide one's style, or help inspire??  Amazon is selling this hardcover book for only $23.32!!  I was at Barnes and Noble the other day, and I believe it was at least priced at $40!  So if you're in need of purchasing this book for someone, or just for yourself, be sure to click here.


Most of you know I really love Lauren Conrad's girly and chic style!  Now she has come out with her own book to help those in need of a few pointers or useful ideas on being stylish!  Amazon's description really explains it better than I can:
"You've seen Lauren Conrad on TV and red carpets, looking fabulous whether she's going casual for a day with friends or dressed for a night out. Now Lauren reveals how you can adapt her classic, understated style for yourself.

In her first-ever style guide, Lauren offers tips on how to create your own unique look, shares her favorite sources of inspiration, and identifies the absolute must-haves for any fashionista's wardrobe. Along the way, she examines her fashion evolution, from California-casual teen to camera-ready style icon and clothing designer.

From beauty advice and hair secrets to how to shop vintage or find the perfect T-shirt, Lauren Conrad Style unlocks the mysteries of being effortlessly chic. With Lauren's guidance, you'll look and feel stylish every day."
I'm sure most fans of Lauren or the show The Hills, would love to take a look at this style guide!  Know anybody who does?  Be sure to purchase this book for them.  You can buy it here for just under $12!  Not a bad price for a Christmas gift, right?


Gaga has certainly made statements with her style in the past couple of years, some good, some bad, either way, most people do find her intriguing.  When she walks into a room, one can't help but stare!

Many books have already been released about her, but this one, being the most recent, offers the best insight into the real Lady Gaga.  Amazon's description:
"A book that's as eye-catching, over-the-top, and fabulous as Lady Gaga herself!

The Grammy® Award-winning Lady Gaga has taken the world by storm, setting sales records and becoming a style icon. This lavish volume examines the Lady's history and phenomenal rise, her music and videos, and her unique look and chameleon-like nature. Chock-full of photos that capture Gaga from childhood through stardom, it also includes images of those who have influenced her style and an appraisal of her place in the pantheon of performance artists.

Gaga is a must-have for the millions who love this very special performer and celebrity."
Although, this isn't a must have for me, I do like some of the looks Lady Gaga has come up with, and I know many of you out there, have as well.  To purchase this book, simply click here.  This book is priced just below $17. 

What do you think?  Are any of you interested in these books?  Will you purchasing any for someone else this holiday season?  Or might you be asking to receive one of these yourself, for Christmas?  Any other fashion forward books out there that you have your eyes on?  I'd love to hear about other chic books out there!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

I absolutely loved Lauren's book! What I thought was so great about it was that it featured photos of Lauren in clothes she actually owns and wears. It's a really great read and perfect for anyone who is a fan!
