Fab post as ever and neatly done. You'd love Alicia Drake's 'Beautiful Fall' if you haven't already.

Kristin said...

I've always secretly wanted to a be a librarian in the Library of Congress. Imagine if the librarians looked like these lovelies? There would be a whole lot more reading going on I would imagine.

Allison said...

Thank you so much for the award, daring CC! You are just too sweet for words :)
I love that Melody Woodin is reading A Clockwork Orange! And people say models are dumb ;)
I've read it a million times, but one of my favorite reads for any time really, is Pride and Prejudice or On the Road. So good :)
Enjoy your weekend and the beautiful weather we're finally having!

reading is very sexy as you said before. it really opens up the mind. I am reading 21st Economy now.

Diego R. Wyatt said...

I am such a nerd...I love reading and it seems my summer listing continues to grow. I am reading "Couture Culture" now and next are "Mercury in Retrograde", Coco Chanel's autobiography and "Chasing Harry Winston".

I just finished My Sister's Keeper and am starting a fantasy Fragile Eternity. (I usually post what I'm reading on my site :D)

One of my favorite books is Atlas Shrugged. I admire Ayn Rand. Most people "had" to read it in college. I wanted to.

Congratulations on the award and great post.

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

cute photos! i love reading :)

Zakuro said...

Many models seem to be great readers.

Book is really treasure house of wisdom and humane, although reading needs much energy.

Haruki Murakami is genius!
My Jp favorite authors are Junichiro Tanizaki, Osamu Dazai and Banana Yshimoto, although.

However, sometimes i want to get the books just because of the cover's drawings.
Even if i can't read the languages in contents;D

Sher said...

CC - I checked out those Jacquard shorts FAB! I'm also eying the wallpaper jacquard dress ;) But I purchased a jacket instead, only because it was on sale.

Anika said...

CC, love this post so much!
And Myf Shepherd is a delight, love her to bits. Helps that she's reading such a great book.

As Macaron Treats shared the book she's reading, here's mine: Falling Man by Don DeLillo. What a fabulous book!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend (and I totally understand the jeans moratorium ;)

p.s. thank you for your sweet comment on my last post dearie :D

Hanako66 said...

congratulations on the award and I love this post!

I love seeing backstage photos!

Alya said...

I looooove reading. And I looooooove models. But my favorite models are those with a good head on their shoulders. Not like some who I see in interviews, and they sound like complete bimbos!

rossovelvet said...

Eheh, lovely post ! I remember seeing Iekeliene Stange reading Plato on a picture... nice surprises !

Amazing Style said...
