Review

Style never goes out of fashion and Style Mentors proves it! This book is an incredible archive of today’s most stylish tastemakers worldwide and fashion icons of days past whose influence is still strong today. It’s a great celebration of women and the power of enduring style. (Lori Goldstein, stylist and Style Editor at Large, W Magazine)

In its profiles of contemporary women, from the relatively conventional to the most eccentric, Style Mentors is a fascinating introduction to those who have successfully negotiated the perilous challenges of fashion to achieve great personal style. (Harold Koda, Curator-in-Charge, The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of ArtHarold Koda, Curator-in-Charge, The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of ArtHarold Koda, Curator-in-Charge, The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan)

The Style Mentors is a very vibrant, new take on fashion and style. Dimant’s deep knowledge of fashion history combined with her contemporary perspective makes the book rich and engaging. (Francisco Costa, Women's Creative Director, Calvin Klein Collection)

A beautifully illustrated volume profiling today’s most stylish women with a solid nod to icons of days past-and featuring timeless styles throughout-The Style Mentors inspires us all to cultivate a more creative closet! (Cynthia Rowley, Designer)

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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Interesting book if you are into fashion. The book is divided into themes: the siren, the bohemian, the icon, etc and for each category it describes the look of the woman that "belongs" to the category. It is not cheesy or obvious in the choices: actually I found some women like the model Irina Lazarenau, who is not the usual trite choice for a gamine look - and Sofia Coppola for the minimalist. There are some images (not too many though, hence 4 stars) to show the main characteristics for each category and sort of "interviews" in bullet points to the women of each theme and their must haves. I like the author goes back in history to talk about the fashion icons of the past for each category, like Marie Antoinette. It is very fascinating.

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.

I loved the writing and the photos in Elyssa Diamant's book. And as a coffee table book, it makes for a great flip through book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Your Time 15 Jan. 2015
By Estro_generation - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Very well written and excellently designed. There were some lack listed chapters for me, but perhaps it was because I did not relate to the iconic muse (Gamine and Bohemian) overall, for a book published in 2012, it was still relevant without being awash in fashion platitudes you can get for 3.99 on newstands . I would recommend this to anyone with an older teen to adult fashion lover as a great gift coupled with a few gift cards to a favorite store to use as bookmarks.
