This book is very nice, photos are really beautiful, and design is glorious. I, personally, haven't seen that the book is in French, which is a bummer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive Overview of Costumes throughout MJ's Career 6 Nov. 2012
By Kerryah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In what seems an obvious attempt to steal a march on Michael Bush's book The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson, the Omnibus Press publication Michael Jackson Style, by Stacey Appel, covers the full range of costumes from Michael's childhood days as the lead singer of the Jackson 5 right up to the rehearsals for This Is It and planned concert outfits by Zaldy and Tompkins/Bush.

The text is lightweight and reasonably accurate, inoffensive (to us die-hard MJ fans) and even informative of some details I personally wasn't aware of. Either way, whether you know all this stuff already or not, this is a nice way of having it all together in one volume, illustrated with full colour photographs.

My only reservations are with the amount of space given to the childhood and formative years of his adult career. My own interest in MJ really took off when I saw the Australian premier screening of his Bad film on TV. Michael might have been in his late twenties when he made it, but at the time to me it seemed he had finally grown up, and become very, very sexy!

All that follows on from the Bad era being what most interests me (those HIStory tour Gold Pants especially) it was disappointing to have to wait until page 102 for 'the good stuff' to really kick in, with a chapter appropriately titled "My friends you have seen nothing yet".

However, I was thrilled to discover some pages devoted to the "Michael Jackson's Ghosts" project, a personal favourite, and one too often overlooked by non MJ experts. More photos from the film or on the set would have been great, though.

The bonus with this book is that it is not limited to the wonderfully iconic outfits designed my Michael's long time costumers, Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush. In the final pages we see him in outfits designed by Cavalli, Givenchy and Valentino, though again, more photographs would have been nice.

The fashion photo shoots for L'Omo Vogue and Ebony magazines are discussed, as is the Balmain connection of the 2009 season. Michael Jackson is revealed as someone who wasn't bothered about fashion trends so much as what he liked... and inevitably what he liked and what he wore BECAME fashionable.

And finally we have the aftermath: MJ's style legacy, with fans and fellow artists paying tribute to the Maestro by wearing the iconic looks that sprang from the creative genius of Michael Jackson and were crafted for him by some of the best costumers in the business.

As a broadly encompassing look at the subject, accompanied by hundreds of photographs, Michael Jackson Style is a worthy addition to any MJ fan's book collection.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting! 31 Mar. 2013
By Dr. Karen Moriarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As the author of "Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy" about the incomparable Michael Jackson, I was not impartial when I read this book. I thought that I would thoroughly enjoy it. However, I recommend it for anyone who admires Michael and anyone who is interested in fashion, especially in the entertainment industry. 5 Stars.
