The only thing better than sitting down with a big, fat glossy magazine in your lap is picking up a big, fat glossy coffee table book full of fashion, fashion and more fashion. "Harper's Bazaar: Greatest Hits" is a luxe art book that celebrates 10 years of Editor in Chief Glenda Bailey (pictured above) and Creative Director Stephen Gan's vision for the style tome.

"Fashion reflects what's going on in our world, and Bazaar makes pop culture fashionable," Bailey said. "I think of my job as hosting a can't-miss party where everyone's invited."

This book is a fabulous read - and yes, there's text interspersed with the larger than life fashion photography. I really enjoyed it, and did sit down with it practically cover to cover when I was looking for a light yet thought-provoking read. Put it on your Christmas list!
