First of all, I am still going to be doing comic book guides. I'm just...putting it aside for now because I've missed doing book lists. Since Fall TV is almost upon us, I'm going to start doing lists for TV shows. The first one up, is Project Runway. I love Project Runway. I have no shame in admitting this, no matter how ridiculous the challenges get at times. So here are some books for fans who are like me and pining for the new season that's coming out next week.
Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible by Tim Gunn
Tim Gunn has a whole slew of books out there. This is my personal favorite of his. It goes into little micro histories of every possible article of clothing out there, from belts to jeans.
The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
If you've seen the movie, you probably know why I'm recommending this for PR fans. It follows a assistant as she helps a mean fashion mogul at one of the top fashion magazines.
The One Hundred: A Guide To The Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own by Nina Garcia
My favorite judge on PR has quite a few style guides out there. This is probably the best of them.
Fifty Dresses That Changed the World by the Design Museum
If you're like me and love your micro-histories and PR, this is probably the book for you. It is exactly what it sounds like, a look into dresses that helped change society.
The Airhead Trilogy by Meg Cabot
Very underrated trilogy about a teenage girl who gets her brain/soul switched into the body of a famous supermodel.
Paradise Kiss manga series by Ai Yazawa
Manga more your thing? Then absolutely give this complete 5 volume series a look. It's about a girl who finds her life turned upside down when she's dragged into a modelling career by a group of guys who are breaking into the fashion world.
Mademoiselle Chanel by C. W. Gortner
A historical fiction book about the life of Coco Chanel.
Diana: Her Life in Fashion by Georgina Howell
A look into Diana, Princess of Wales and her fashion looks.
