Undoubtably a beautiful book, but watch out - the black flocking on the cover comes off, and leaves dirty great marks on any light coloured fabrics!

Content-wise I found it to be a bit of a mixed bag. Some lovely pages and great info, but ocassionally I found it a bit too 'glossy-mag' for my liking (fix your cellulite! buy things you can't afford! etc).

My favourite book of this genre is and remains 'A year of style' by Frederic Fekkai. I recommend taking a look at that too if you're deciding which to buy.

This is a very beautifully illustrated book and makes for an interesting read. However i was slightly disappointed with it as it was just not what i was expecting. The book is a narration of the author's life essentially and gives useful tips on how to get pen marks off your bags, and clean your suede shoes for example but unfortunately i found it to be slightly boring and too personal, i found myself flicking through most of her memories that outline each new section. I expected the book to be more of a guide to how you should create your own style, for example when it comes to fashion; good places to find great heels, black dresses, how to apply your makeup, great places for cocktails and so on but it was more a biographical account of one persons own experiences which are always going to be different to how someone else experiences them. The majority of tips and advice she gives don't really relate to the average woman but someone essentially with a lot of money. This book definitely provides useful tips on what to look for when for example buying a suit etc but in my opinion a lot of it is not things people need to be told. It is aimed at a certain type of person who perhaps doesnt have time to go out and find new places, bars, restaurants etc and prefers having a list of good places to go, where they can get their teeth re-done, laser treatments etc which of course there is nothing wrong with. Overall i would recommend it for its more practical advice rather than it being a good read.

While this book is very cute and does have some good tips I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who is not particularly well off with money! The restaurants and 'hotspots'recommended are all very pricey and I nearly dropped the book when one of the authors recalls the time she flew to America and spent nearly £40,000 on some new teeth! Quite depressing for someone who does not have the funds to experience all these little adventures!
That being said, as long as the book is not taken too seriously it is an ok read. The pages are set out in a fun way and it does cover a lot of different aspects of life e.g. hair, make-up, gym, shoes, holidays etc.
