From the Back Cover
Profiling more than eighty contemporary women with great style, The Style Mentors offers today's fashion-conscious woman role models for the here and now. Each of the book's eight chapters addresses a signature look with proven fashion longevity—icon, maverick, bohemian, gamine, siren, minimalist, rocker, and classic—and demonstrates how to achieve it by analyzing the style of those who wear it admirably. The Style Mentors then shows how to incorporate that know-how into a current personal look. Included throughout are a wealth of dos and don'ts, lists of wardrobe and accessory essentials, and sage tips on fashion and beauty in the words of the women themselves.
With more than two hundred gorgeous photo-graphs and an informative, entertaining text, The Style Mentors is essential reading for fashion mavens and for anyone seeking tried-and-true advice on the art of dressing well from those who have mastered it.See all Product description

Such a shame she did not include icons like Franca Sozzani and Anna Piaggi. But it is a subjective opinion and she could not talk about them all!
it is a nice present for friends that are into fashion or/and are looking for inspiration for their looks. It is not a style guide - wear this, dress like that. it is more like getting some clever ideas. Written by a true expert and not by a blogger or "fake" expert that woke up one day and decided they know everything about fashion even f they don't . I bought a few copies of this book for birthdays and Xmas presents and they have been very well received.
