StyleBistro STUFF: SWANS Coffee Table Book

We realize there is no shortage of droolworthy coffee table books on the market; however, we're finding British historian (and GQ luxury editor) Nicholas Foulkes' new book about bon vivants and their decadent, far-flung, post-WWII exploits particularly tempting. Maybe it's the saturated images of masked balls, Slim Aarons types sunning in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, and socialites posing on balconies in floor-length Pepto-Bismol pink gowns. We're planning to use it for inspiration on those drab winter days when we need to add a little pearls-and-polka-dotted-turban glamour to our look.

Swans: Legends of the Jet Society, $195 at Assouline
