American Beauties

For those of you who have not had the chance to look at the gorgeous book,  American Beauty, it is truly a must read! The brain child of two former Vogue alumnae, this book was photographed by the talented Claiborne Swanson Frank (pictured above) and annotated by Genevieve Bahrenburg. The two traveled from Southhampton to Napa to capture over 100 iconic portraits of quintessentially American women (many of whom are my personal style icons) such as Aerin Lauder, Meredith Melling Burke, Jenna Lyons, and Lauren Santo Domingo. The common thread that ties these women together is their original blend of "grit, grace, glamour, and gravitas that echos far beyond the pages of this over-sized cover". I'd say it's certainly that winning combination and the incredible photographs that made me devour every page!
