The Internet’s sulkiest sensation went high-fashion yesterday with a trip to the New York Vogue offices. According to Fashionista, the well-traveled cat first met the magazine’s team in Austin at SXSW, where they really hit it off. So much so, in fact, that Vogue invited her to visit as a birthday treat (who needs Friskies?). After the tour, a yet-to-be-revealed birthday surprise, and a quick cuddle with Grace Coddington, Grumpy Cat headed home. Best birthday ever? I’d say so – even if she doesn’t.

Fashion Books We LoveWhile most of us have mile-high stacks of Vogue at our desks (for professional purposes only, of course), we do dive into more substantial reading from time to time. Here are our favorite fashion-forward texts:

Nostalgia in Vogue: This compilation includes a selection of Vogue’s famous “Nostalgia” columns published since 2000.

Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life: This controversial account draws on letters and other records to reveal the less-discussed (and scandalous) chapters of this influential designer’s life.

Grace: A Memoir: Vogue Creative Director, former model, and international icon Grace Coddington gives us a witty, blunt narrative of a life lived fashionably.

The Fashion Book: Aptly named, The Fashion Book is a coffee table book to end all others. This A to Z tome takes a comprehensive look at the most important names in fashion, dating all the way back to the 1860s.

The Little Dictionary of Fashion: A Guide to Dress Sense for Every Woman: Penned by the one and only Christian Dior, this indispensable source covers the fashion fundamentals every woman should adhere to.
