Maureen Callahan's new book.
Champagne Supernovas by Maureen Callahan, ($20, out September 2 from Touchstone)
As months go, this September has one theme and one theme only: fashion. Not only is it Fashion Month, there are a few simply superb fashion-focused books being released, and this gem from Maureen Callahan is one of them.
I've devoured this book and enjoyed every minute of it. It's a tale of three stylish misfits—Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss and Alexandar McQueen—and how they changed fashion forever in the '90s. Callahan details their rises, struggles, triumphs and downfalls with perfect pace and juicy details galore. The book felt particularly timely since the fashion world is re-embracing '90s trends en masse at the moment (hello plaid, crop tops and flatforms!) To accompany my book, I chose a black slip dress, a style that was made iconic by Kate Moss and is finding new life among fashionistas as we speak. If you're a fan of fashion this book is required reading.
