More About the Author

Acclaimed fashion stylist and on-screen consultant, Gok Wan, is now an institution on our screens. Not only has he appeared in a further six series of the award-winning How to Look Good Naked, he has also hosted three series of Gok's Fashion Fix with a follow on series called Gok's Clothes Roadshow; Get The Look For Less. And for all those lonely hearts out there looking for love and a makeover, Gok did not disappoint with his series Gok's Style Secrets giving women countrywide the confidence to get back on the dating scene in style. Gok has explored his family's roots and what it means to be an Anglo-Asian in his documentary Made in China, where he discovered, amongst other oddities, how the abacus is still going strong in Kowloon and how a town has dedicated itself to the production of denim. He has also filmed a moving documentary on child obesity Too Fat Too Young and explored the modern day issues our teenagers are facing including sexuality, online-bullying and eating disorders in a three-part series called Gok's Teens: The Naked Truth. In 2014, Gok became Channel 4 Racing's fashion correspondent.

Bringing something fresh and different to our screens has started to become Gok's signature. To add to his growing repertoire of shows is an absolute departure from fashion with Gok going back to what his family does best in his new cookery show Gok Cooks Chinese. Here we see Gok dispel the myths of Chinese cookery and explore what dishes you should really be eating in your Chinese takeaway.

His on screen triumphs have led to five book deals, including his autobiography Through Thick and Thin, as well as the accompaniment to Gok Cooks Chinese.

He has now crystallized his position as a true champion for women with the launch of his own women's wear range for Sainsbury's, now running into its sixth collection. Released to critical acclaim, it went on to break UK sales records in 2011 allowing women up and down the country to fulfill their dreams and get well and truly Gok'd.

Born on the 9th September 1974 in Leicester, Gok has worked in the fashion industry for the best part of a decade. Studying at London's prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama, he found himself drawn to hair and make-up over drama, prompting his entrée into the fashion industry and gaining him early work as a hair and make-up artist on titles such as The Sunday Times Style. Finding himself dissatisfied with beauty alone, however, Gok decided to pursue his love of clothes as a fashion stylist. Sixteen years on his talent and tenacity has seen him build up quite a pedigree: he has worked with some of the world's most renowned photographers (Rankin, Mike Owen, Tony McGee, Jason Joyce, Elise Dumontet and Arthur Elgot), had his work published internationally (Glamour, The Face, The Times Style, Cosmopolitan, Afisha Mir and People Magazine US), amassed an enviable celebrity client-base (Bryan Ferry, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Vanessa Mae, Damien Lewis and All Saints to name a few) and consulted on a host of television shows including GMTV (ITV1), Battle of The Sexes (BBC1), TV Book Club (Channel 4), Desert Island Discs with Kirsty Young (Radio 4), How To Look Good - With A Difference (Channel 4) and The Friday Night Project (Channel 4).

Despite Gok's growing status as one of the UK's most sought-after stylists and fashion 'gurus', he remains far from blasé (though a little mischievous) about his achievements, especially where his celebrity clients are concerned: "I never dreamt as a child that the people I danced around my bedroom singing to and tried to emulate style-wise, I'd one day get to tell what to wear!"

Format: Hardcover
The best thing about this book is its overall message: you do not necessarily have to loose weight or be rich to look your very best on a day-to-day basis! Gok's approach is 'drink more water, eat more fruit&veg and take good care of yourself'- no diet fads or expensive plastic surgery (see '10 years younger'!) needed. The book focuses on different types of body shape (big bottom, big belly, no curves, too skinny etc.) and provides LOTS of helpful advice as to what to wear and (probably even more important) what not. The last chapters focus on underwear and general beauty routine. All of this is very helpful and the writing style is very similar to the tv show, very positive and encouraging, all about flaunting your best bits and keeping quiet about the rest. I can honestly say that I have never read such a positive book about this subject: Gok does not preach or patronize, but seems to really want to bring the best out in everybody.

The only shortcoming is a lack of photographs. It would have been nice to have more pictures accompanying the advice given in the text. But apart from that: absolutely recommendable!!!

Feel Fab at 50

As an Image professional I have always loved Gok since he jumped on to our TV screens a couple of years ago. He epitomises what we, as professionals, should be doing with our clients. I have continued to love his approach ever since. While the text in his book was sensible and uplifting, strangely enough, I found the choice of clothing incomprehensible for the most part. Instead of flattering his models, who are all gorgeous (and mostly voluptuous), they look uncomfortable and too tight with staining seams, incorrect fabric choices and so on. The Gok on TV would never make these fundamental errors and the upshot is that his girls look bigger than they really are. A conundrum!

Format: Hardcover
Five stars because although the book is not perfect I applaud the kindness of the author. An interesting aspect is that Wan himself tells us that he was overweight. Quite obviously he is not now - yet this is emphatically not a diet book. What seems to have happened is that the author styled himself to feel better about himself and the weightloss followed in due course when he was happier about himself. This book is so brilliant because it starts with what's right about you rather than with what is wrong, working with your self-consciousness rather than totally disregarding it. All teenage girls should be given this book and the author should be given a knighthood. Read in conjunction with watching the TV show.

My only criticisms: perhaps the style is a little cloying; but I'll live with that since I know he is trying to put the reader at their ease. Also sometimes it's hard to know exactly what shape you are: e.g. am I a pear shape, a bird with a big bum or petite? Maybe some comparative measurements would be useful. Worst thing would be to accidentally go for the wrong shape. Really I'm a combination of all three so how to work with that? There is some limited advice but more would be good.

***** I love this book! Gok is so lovely on the show. I wish there were more people on TV telling women they can look great even if they don't look like scrawny supermodels... I'm definitely a `bellisimo babe' (that means having a big belly, to you and me)!!! it was so helpful to be told what clothes I should buy and what I should avoid. a bit like going on a shopping trip with Gok himself!

The pictures in this book are lovely and the tips are really helpful. Other style books don't have as many female body shapes to talk about. There are women who fall between two shapes and like similar books, Gok does not discuss them. Nevertheless having watched him on telly and knowing his style, this is a great book to own and refer to over and over agin.

I love his programme and couldn't wait for the book but I was disappointed that there weren't more pictures to show you what clothes to wear rather than just describing them however it was still nice to read as Gok is so passionate.

Format: Hardcover
I am not usually a fan of fashion and stylist programmes, but I tuned into Gok's every week. It hit just the right tone, about celebrating what real women look like and making the best of what you already had rather than needing to change.
This book has the same loveable and helpful tone as the show, and offers a supportive mantra to learn to love what you have and make the best of it. The only real confusing element is if you're not sure which of the body types describes you best, eg if you're top heavy but also uncomfortable about your belly.
Gok is offering a valuable service to all women uncomfortable with their shapes and this book offers helpful advice, aswell as feeling like a confidante to remind you that yes, you are beautiful. Of course, I'm biased because I met Gok at his book signing and am absolutely in love with the man, but I really do recommend this book as an encouragement to all women who want to learn how to be comfortable in their own skin just the way it is.

Gok's narrative is positive & uplifting, which instantly makes you feel better about your body. An informative read with good visuals, although I would have liked a bit more detailed information on what clothes to buy. Better than most syle books!
