We've sorted through all of the notable fashion books that were published in 2013, and come up with a list of the ones we think are most likely to appeal to fashion-minded readers -- plus a few favorites published before 2013 that may not be on the shelf.
From Westwood's punk-era Sex boutique in London with Malcolm McLaren in the '70s (which outfitted the Sex Pistols) to eventually designing Carrie Bradshaw's wedding gown in Sex and the City, saying she's had a fascinating career is an understatement.
Kenneth Cole is known for causing controversy almost as much as he is for his work as a designer--which is exactly what his new book, This Is a Kenneth Cole Production, focuses on.
Don't get us wrong, actor Stanley Tucci did a fine job playing a fabulous gay editor in Devil Wears Prada. That being said, I think we can all agree Simon Doonan, he of the liberty print shirts and endless quips, would have done a much better job. It turns out that's no coincidence. According to Barneys' creative ambassador at-large, Tucci based his character partly on Doonan.
A round up of Karl Lagerfeld's best quotes (not all of them--just the best ones) from a single year took up 10 pages of this website, so imagine how many there would be if you went back through his entire career. You could practically fill a book. Oh wait--someone did.
It's been a decade now since Lauren Weisberger first published The Devil Wears Prada--a juicy roman a clef about her time working for Anna Wintour that spawned a hit movie in 2006, starring Anne Hathaway as the abused assistant Andy Sachs and Meryl Streep as the Wintour-esque Miranda Priestly.

Part of a trio of magazines that launched in 1980--which also included i-D and The Face--Blitz was the subversive fashion brainchild of university students Carey Labovitch and Simon Tesle. Former Blitz fashion editor Iain R. Webb has combined his impressive archive of photos with personal anecdotes from the models, photographers, and artists involved with each shoot for this unique take on the history of the mag in As Seen in BLITZ, out this month. Many of the images (including a rather unforgettable collage of Vogue editor Hamish Bowles in a Chanel twinset, a fresh-out-of-Parsons Marc Jacobs) haven't been seen since they were first published in the pages of Blitz 30 years ago. Here's what Webb had to say about Blitz's heyday.
Having already pretty well conquered the internet and social media, Man Repeller Leandra Medine has set her sights on your book shelf. Or your Kindle library. Whatever. Medine first revealed she was working on a book back in September 2011--and now we finally have a glimpse of her efforts: Introducing, Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.
Between signing on with Numero Russia, recent rumors of a talk show, and a new book release, André Leon Talley has a lot to be excited about. But his mind is focused on something a bit more, shall we say, topical.
Roger Vivier--the brand credited with inventing the stiletto--has a long and rich history, all documented in the new Rizzoli tome Roger Vivier.
