Présentation de l'éditeur

From Nina Garcia—fashion judge on Bravo’s hit Project Runway and author of Style Strategy and The One Hundred—comes her wildly popular New York Times bestseller The Little Black Book of Style. Here, in one indispensible volume, are Nina’s ultimate rules of style to help you uncover your own signature look.

Quatrième de couverture

Every time you dress, you assert your identity. With style, you tell the world your story. In that way, style affords you opportunities to think about your appearance as a quality of your creative character. The Little Black Book of Style helps you to explore your own fashion voice—the piece of you that joyously revels in the glamorous experience of creating your best self.

From cultivating good taste to guarding against definite fashion faux pas, Nina Garcia offers readers the ultimate guide to follow when it comes to dressing their best. Including advice on how best to wear an outfit and when occasion wear is appropriate, tips on combining color and texture, and the inspiration to achieve your own signature look, this book will show you how to experiment, storyboard, archive, and play. Timeless and universal, this book reminds us that eternal style is internal style, and that women everywhere have what it takes to discover themselves through the colorful palette that is fashion.

Un livre non pas vraiment sur la mode mais plutôt une répétition de 'intégrez votre personnalité à vos tenues', mais on y trouve aussi différentes sources d'inspiration pour s'habiller, des citations de "grands noms" de la mode etc, les classiques. On vous dit que pour être à la mode il ne faut pas être à la mode, il faut être unique, mais que la mode et le style sont 2choses différentes. Ce livre, de mon point de vu, mériterai 4 étoiles si seulement l'auteur de prônait pas l'utilisation de cuire et de fourrure...

Le seul point d'intérêt de ce livre est la liste de films et d'artistes que l'auteur cite en tant que modèles d'inspiration, mais même dans cette liste rien de nouveau! Ce livre est creux, à mon sens, et n'apporte rien de plus qu'un bon magazine.

c'est un joli petit livre que l'on parcours assez rapidement, mais je dois dire qu'il vaut vraiment le coup à mes yeux. Il est plaisant à lire. Il y a d'excellents conseils, mais ce que j'ai vraiment trouvé super c'est la liste de films classés chronologiquement pour nous "inspirer". Vraiment, le prix est tout à fait correct et je suis bien contente d'avoir ce livre dans ma bibliothèque, je sais que je le feuilletterai de temps en temps!

Very surprised 10 septembre 2007
Par B. Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is quite a fun and informative read. Nina Garcia keeps her voice light throughout, with a few funny moments that genuinely surprised me. Though I am a huge fan of the 'Project Runway' judge, I had honestly expected her book to be dry and even condescending -- this is the infamous Nina Garcia, after all.

But I was quite surprised. Especially around my first laugh-at-loud moment, when she discusses the importance of buying shoes that actually fit your feet and not just your budget: "Toes spilling out of a pair of strappy, sexy sandals is a very painful sight. I do not wince out of sympathy for your feet. I side with the shoes."

The rules of style never really change. But Nina Garcia does a great job at giving you the tools to edit your closet, your shopping habits and helping you discover and create your own style.

Aside from the usual advice one gets from style manuals, she provides a chapter on finding your fashion inspiration, complete with bulleted lists of movie and rock fashion icons. She also has an entire chapter of quick question and answer sessions from fashion professionals such as John Galliano, Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta, etc.

The only issue I had with the book was that it was too short. I wanted to read more of her own experiences with style and fashion. These moments in the book were by far the high points. While I did like the inclusion of so many lists, her voice was lost sometimes among all of the bullet points. Which is a shame, because some of her life stories are truly unique, such as the one about her mother's live-in seamstress.

Overall, this book was a fun, informative read that left me smiling for the rest of the day. I highly suggest it, no matter what your level of fashion or style experience may be.

A Lot of Help in a Little Book 22 septembre 2007
Par Jay K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Not having seen "Project Runway", I didn't know what to expect from Nina Garcia's style book. It is, itself, a sylish little tome with drawings, no photos, and six chapters entitled, "Be Your Own Muse", "The Basics", "Inspirations", "What to Wear When...", "Insider Tips and Tricks", and, "Fashion Cliff's Notes, Decade by Decade".

One of my favorite parts of the book is chapter five, with the insider tips and tricks. The insiders include Diane von Furstenberg, Zac Posen, Ralph Lauren, Marherita Missoni, and Elle Macpherson, among (many) others. Questions were posed to each--questions such as "What do you find eternally stylish?" to "What is the secret to style?" Answers were short and direct and helpful.

Another favorite chapter is "The Basics". It includes 10 basic "rules" to guide the reader to his or her unique style. It begins with the simple dictim to "Edit" and how to do so, and ends with the lovely "Be Imperfect", which lets us all breathe a little.

A more unusual addition to "The Little Black Book..." is the "What to Watch and What to Watch For" section in the Style and Film part of Chapter 3, "Inspirations", which I found useful, followed by Style and Music, which I did not.

This little book was fun to read, a little sassy and a good deal of information that can be used to put the reader in style. Two (well manicured) thumbs up!

Entertaining - but pretty impractical for non-fashion industry women 10 octobre 2007
Par A reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Nina Garcia's prose is amusing, but there is very little substance to be gleaned if you are like most women - not connected with the fashion industry. Most of us have non-fashionista day jobs in addition to other activities that require different looks. We turn to fashion magazines and books for tips on finding an individualistic style that maximizes one's options based on a few well-chosen key pieces. The trick is to develop a flattering, cohesive, modern style that is versatile enough to be adaptable to many events without make one look schizophrenic, all the while hopefully remaining solvent.

Garcia's most important fashion tip is about getting your clothing altered so that they fit better. If you are somewhat fashion savvy, the advice given - such as the importance of altering looks with accessories, paring down your wardrobe to essentials - is nothing new. Most of the book is filled with fashion industry and personal anecdotes and descriptions of looks that are simply neither practical nor affordable for most women.

If you are looking for some light reading on fashion, go ahead. If you were looking for practical advice or secret insider information on any aspects of style, I suggest looking elsewhere.

this is a guide to personal style, avoiding the fashion victim look while cleaning up personal image. 15 novembre 2007
Par overtakenbyanap - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As Nina points out "confidence is captivating, powerful and it doesn't fade, and that is endlessly more interesting than beauty."

Her book is all about developing that confidence with clothing, which is part of a person's overall impression, the package they present to the world, and upon which they are judged.

You never do get a second chance to make a first impression. It is a faster paced society, people move in and out of contact with each other in brief seconds, and this means the impression you leave says more and more about you, as we talk less.

I've read my way thru decades of fashion magazines, rarely finding much of value. They are all about finding this season's "it" bag while Nina explains why you might not want to look for this season's "it" bag, why finding your own style might work better (and be cheaper and more satisfying too).

I am not a Project Runway viewer, never saw it, not interested in the life of a fashion model in the slightest but I love dressing well.

This guide transcends current fashions, and gives timeless advice.

Yes, some of it we've all heard before, but then again, not everyone who buys this book will be fluent with Vogue, Elle, Lucky, Harper's Bazaar and the like.

Some things bear repeating.

The most useful sections I found to be the first part on finding your confidence and projecting style. She has a list of basic concepts in there that are worth the price of the book in my opinion.

Things like; How to edit (your wardrobe, your buying habits), How not to be a fashion victim, Buying Drama, How to mix it up, How to be imperfect. That last one is a bit tricky. On first glance most women groan that they've got that nailed!

But here she is talking about the kind of relaxed imperfection that comes across as simply stunning. And she gives guidelines!

Her list of the classics is fun. She includes the ubiquitous little black dress, the classic man tailored white shirt, cashmere (turtle neck or cardigan, trench coat, jeans, a man classic styled watch, diamonds, ballet flats, high heel pumps and a great handbag.

This is a great current guide on the lines of the classic book A Guide to Elegance by Genevieve Dariaux. Buy both.

And those illustrations are wonderful. I've so enjoyed that artist's work in Vogue. Great book all round.

i bought this book only because nina garcia is amazing on project runway. being a shopoholic i really didn't think i needed any "style" help. but after reading it i feel inspired and am digging deeper in my fashion arsenal everyday to make each outfit stand out. i also did a huge purge after reading this. she helped me part with a lot of items that for one reason or another i couldn't seem to get rid of in the past.

two thumbs way up nina!!!
