What's on my nightstand?

The Beautiful Fall: Lagerfeld, Saint Laurent, and Glorious Excess in 1970s Paris



I just started this book which, unfortunately, did not arrive in time for my mini beach vacation. I am just beginning to comprehend the genius that was Yves St. Laurent.

Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution



Diva Phyllis is already reading this book, she made it sound so good that I had to buy it. The Marie Antoinette feature in the September issue of Vogue really piqued my interest in the book and the movie.

Debut: Yves Saint Laurent 1962

Thanks for sharing these. Is this the order you're reading them in? I loved the Antionette in Vogue too! Although, I'm not a hugh fan of Kristin Dunst.

Thanks for the reminder that I have a few books to get! I lived in Paris during the 70's and it was definitely a city of wretched excess. But then, hasn't it always been?
