Details: Product Description The hilarious, beloved cohost of TLC’s What Not to Wear examines the universal obstacles all women??including herself??put in their way With her unique talent for seeing past disastrous wardrobes to the core emotional issues that caused these sartorial crises, style savant Stacy London has transformed not only the looks but also the lives of hundreds of guests who have appeared on What Not to Wear. Now for the first time in print, London turns that expert X-ray insight on herself.Like the women she’s transformed, London has plenty of emotional baggage. At eleven, she suffered from severe psoriasis that left her with permanent physical and mental scars. During college, she became anorexic on a misguided quest for perfection. By the time she joined the staff at Vogue, London’s weight had doubled from binge eating. Although self-esteem and self-consciousness nearly sabotaged a promising career, London learned the h From Booklist With much credit to London, editor and co-host of TLC’s What Not to Wear, nine women from situations, including young-married, breast-cancer-survivor, and plus-size blogger, are redressed, restyled, and, most important, re-created into new and thoroughly confident personages. Yes, style is definitely not fashion, and, in each case, the transformation is amazing. For example, Ashley, in the midst of an emotional eating disorder, is now garbed in badass style, complete with leather jacket and fitted jeans; and Tania, who defines herself through her family, forsakes black-on-black for color—lots of it. Each woman begins with a letter that is often heart wrenching; London follows with an analysis of symptoms, underlying causes, and a perceptive prescription that frequently is couched in very personal terms and peppered with dialogue, color pictures of try-ons, as well as recommendations for closet restocking. Most poignant of all is London’s own story, which includes acute psoriasis, anorexia, and, today, her wondrous sense of self.
