  1. Oh! I have the Prada one you listed plus a Manolo Blahnik one, 100 Legendary Trunks of Louis Vuitton, and the new Jean Paul Gaultier one. Lately, I am obsessed with him. I hope you get all of these for Christmas! Happy Holidays!

  2. Oh fabulous choices, I haven't seen the Prada one before!

  3. I love these books in a major, major way (and you can never have too many of them). Fashion photography books are always beautiful and inspirational as well. There's an Irving Penn book that I would love to add to my collection. These aren't only pretty coffee table books for me--I actually reference them and use them for inspiration!
