I loved the concept more than the execution. This book's layout was fun. However, it focused more on famous stars, celebrities, and models than regular ladies. It would have been a better choice to include more facts and photos of both types of women.

Why did the authors choose to put someone that looked like Boy George on the cover? It made me almost wish that he was in it.

Not enough pictures of examples and a lot of typos. It was informational though, and the pictures it did include were beautiful. I loved the layout and all the different categories that were covered related to beauty.
