A Crash Course In Dressing Like The Stars

If you are like me your favorite part of any award show is watching your favorite actor or actress arrive on the red carpet. The editors of Us Weekly have created a book called abc Secrets of Celebrity Style, xyz which captures all the best looks and shows all of how to look more stylish and pulled together. The book is divided into four sections: Timeless - The Look Of Celebrity Style, Star Style – Five Ways To Make It Yours, Occasions – Living With Celebrity Style, and Strategies – Thinking Like A Stylist.

“Thinking Like A Celebrity Stylist” features the following chapters:

  • Any-figure style
  • Bump Chic
  • Your Age Style
  • Shoes & Bags
  • Style Pitfalls

abc Secrets Of Celebrity Style xyz is generously illustrated with lots of great celebrity photos and is well annotated as well. One of the most interesting features of this book is called “Anatomy of a Gown”. This is where the authors take a classic red carpet look and analyze it. For example we have the white Carolina Hererra that Renee Zellweger wore to the 2004 Oscars. They examine the dress in terms of fit, draping, the train and the giant bow detail on the back as well as the hair and jewelry that Renee wore with it. A key theme of this book is how to wear clothes to your best advantage regardless of your figure flaws, age or budget. The expert advice offered is sound and applies to anyone wanting to look their best.
