So you probably won't be attending your own movie premiere or collecting a Grammy Award this year. That doesn't mean you can't look like you're ready for the red carpet and fawning paparazzi. In Effortless Style, June Ambrose, the celebrity fashion stylist and designer who's shaped the looks of some of the biggest names in entertainment -- including Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, Kelly Ripa, and Mariah Carey -- reveals the industry secrets that can help anyone exude genuine star power, regardless of body type or budget.

The key to looking and feeling like a celebrity lies in defining your own unique style and adapting it to each situation. The result is a look as natural as a second skin. In clear step-by-step instructions, Ambrose shows how people can improve the way they present themselves to the world, whether it's for a first date or an important meeting, and in turn boost their overall mood and self-confidence. Using examples from her work molding celebrities' images, she teaches women (and their men) how to define and enhance their look, with chapters devoted to topics such as knowing what clothes work for each body type, how to accessorize like a star, the importance of tailoring clothes so that an off-the-rack suit fits like a custom-made Armani, and much more. She offers tricks of the trade -- from choosing the perfect lingerie to handling bad hair days -- and provides a welcome list of wardrobe essentials and perennial fashion don'ts.

With this must-have style guide every woman, whether girl next door or top executive, will be able to unleash her inner VIP -- effortlessly.

I found this very hard to follow. It's way too wordy. There are some good pieces of advice, but they're buried among all the words. A better title would be 'How to wear whatever you want however you want.'

I have followed June's career for about 5 years now and I know from reading online she has styled over 100 music videos. Once I heard about the book i just had to purchase it. This book is a must read for any woman who is looking to improve their image. This book contains tons of advice that is useful to any woman.

disappointing for someone who has so much style, she should have wrote it herself not with anyone
