For the fashion library… American Beauty

Note to self… pre-order new book from Assouline, American Beauty!

As I sit here writing this now I’m overlooking a coffee table that is overflowing with memories of my home country and my love for style. There’s Ralph Lauren’s massive encyclopedia of the brand, a handbook on preppy style, Dream Homes of America and about twenty issues of American Vogue. I’m surrounded by images that remind me home is never far away. So when I saw this new release from Assouline, American Beauty, I couldn’t help but want instant coffee table access! Alas, it is not out yet but available to pre-order. Grrr! My American tribute arrangement before me will have to wait for its latest edition to the fold…

American Beauty is a book that is filled with photographs from fashion photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank. She’s captured women she believes symbolize what the country is today and it’s quite an all star cast. Everyone from Jenna Lyons to Lily Aldridge (cover) makes an appearance. Each picture is truly spellbinding and frankly speaking, inspirational. If you didn’t already love the country, I think you may find you at least fall in love with the country’s style after flipping through this memory book for American women.
