You can talk pears, apples, and hourglasses all you want, but nothing beats seeing real pictures of how one piece can make you look fantastic or dumpy. They cover everything in this book, including choosing the correct color for your skintone, the right shoes for your feet and legs, applying makeup properly, wearing the right jewelry for your body, and accessorizing with the perfect handbag, and a whole bunch more -- including how to pose for vacation photos so that you actually WANT to remember your holiday and look at those pictures again.

I consider myself OK with knowing what works for me -- but I still learned so much from this one, and the fun, humorous, and often self-abasing tone only enhanced the book for me. It encourages you to understand your body, accept it for what it is NOW, not 10 pounds lighter, and it reminds you that there are other women with hangups just like you -- the only difference is that after reading this book, you'll know how to confidently create a look that works for all of you -- both the good and the bad.

My only criticism is that sometimes the analysis was very black and white: if you're like Trinny, wear this. If you're like Susannah, wear that. Not all of us have one of the two body types. But in general, I think they offered a very diverse look at how to dress well for all bodies.

Practical advice without beating around the bush. Lots of humor and great photographic examples. Makes you stop and think about what you have in your closet and how to maximize the potential of what you already own, along with getting rid of items that don't flatter you. Includes a great chapter on what colors work best for you.

Interesting, funny, insightful. Perhaps what I liked most about the book were the color combinations.

I bought this book years ago and I still refer to it for color combinations and styling. When I read it at the book store I had to buy it because it was so funny I was laughing out loud in the store! I love this book and it is still helpful and current at least 3 years later.

OK I really didn't change my life but I know more and look better. Really, you have to get organized and throw out what they call culling old out of date clothes and update. Helpful but the color charts were confusing.
