‘Ultimate Fashionista: The Young Hollywood Style Guide’ Book Review
There's no shortage of fashion reading in the world, but Alana has shed some new light on the subject and made it virtually must read material for Australia's (if not the world's) young women.
Having worked at some of the most popular women's magazines such as TV Hits, Girlfriend and OK!, Alana has seen a lot of changes in fashion over the years.
Each chapter of the book offers up something different. You have profiles on style icons such as Zoe Kravitz, Blake Lively, Dakota Fanning and Emma Stone. Then you have interviews with some of Australia’s leading designers and fashion folks across media and retail. There's also a section that lists online stores, a "how-to" packing guide, "must-haves" and much more ladies.
Here's Alana's official description...
Written by Alana Wulff
Published by Random House
What do Blake Lively, Emma Stone and Dakota Fanning have in common (aside from beauty, fame and fortune obviously)? They are all featured in Alana Wulff’s latest book ‘Ultimate Fashionista: The Young Hollywood Style Guide’.
Alana Wulff is an entertainment writer and celebrity interviewer and she uses her pulling power to bring together celebs to grill them on their style, inspirations and wardrobes. Plus she also interviews some of Australia’s leading designers and fashion insiders from PR, print and retail. There is also some cool info at the back of the book about online stores, a packing/travel guide and a list of wardrobe essentials.
The book is colourful, packed full of pictures and has loads of tips and tricks about fashion and styling, referenced through stylish celebs. It is well-researched, with interactive activities (who doesn’t love a good quiz?) and space to write your own notes throughout. Functional and frivolous at the same time - this book is fabulous for those girls who are just starting to become aware of their style or those who would love a sneaky peek inside the lives (and wardrobes) of their fav celebs.
