In all honesty I did not pay much attention to the advice, but the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous!!! (Although a tad exaggerated, yes, but this is fashion)

The illustrations are the best part of the book, if you don't mind nine-foot fashion models.

I love Janie Bryant's costumes for Mad Men, and the book's illustrations are fab, but the content is disappointing and frankly a little silly. Brings "beauty is pain" to a new disturbed level. I think this lady needs a reality check.
