This book was truly informative about the inside world of a stylist and their career path. I had found it while looking for an extended text for a school passion project based upon the importance of fashion stylists, and continued to use it to gain data for my research. It help me advance my knowledge on the subject, being highly informative about their profession, but not so much about fashion itself.

It ends up showing stories of Sasha's past experiences with a few fashion tips here and there.

Funny that the book has a chapter dedicated to fashion crimes, but these mistakes are respected because of the boldness !!

"Stars" do not shine on their own. Why aren't they more embarrassed? Why are they stars? I don't get it.

I thought reading this would help me get off my Amish kick. It did not. Frankly, the Amish are cuter.

But this book was a nice advertisement for Starbucks, Blackberry, and Spanx. And I'm sure I'll always appreciate the wisdom I gleaned from this book. Because of this helpful book, I'll remember the benefits of wearing underwear.

Brilliant!

More about career info for stylists rather than fashion pointers. If you're interested in becoming a stylist, then this is the book for you. I did learn the essential nature of shape wear though!

Interesting for fans of fashion, celebrities and stylists. More like an overlong magazine article but a quick fun read.
