Beautiful Books

I really enjoy fashion, style, decorating and makeup books for ideas and inspiration. I especially look for those that are timeless, giving hints and suggestions that will last year after year. This Christmas I am asking for:

The Little Black Book of Style by Nina Garcia (Project Runway judge and Elle fashion director).

and also:

Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style by my favorite Project Runway host. If only he narrated the book.

I already own the following books, and recommend them.

Making Faces by makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. Great for amateurs and professionals. Gorgeous photos I can look at over and over again.

Face Forward by also Kevyn Aucoin. Inspiring with tons of different looks with step by step instructions. Fabulous photos once again.

Bobbi Brown Beauty by Bobbi Brown - makeup artist and CEO of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Simple and straightforward with everyday tips and classic looks.

Sonia Kashuk Real Beauty by makeup artist Sonia Kashuk. Practical techniques and advice. Bonus: it comes with a DVD

The Shabby Chic Homeby designer Rachel Ashwell. Soothing pictures and inspiring ideas for a cozy, home, room or even a small space, regardless if you can afford the real thing.
