9780061992186: The Style Mentors: Women Who Define the Art of Dressing Today

The Style Mentors is a vibrant new take on fashion and style.”
—Francisco Costa, Women’s Creative Director, Calvin Klein Collection

In The Style Mentors, fashion authority Elyssa Dimant profiles more than 80 famous contemporary women with great style, offering fashion-conscious women 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 today’s trendsetters in those categories (Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Sofia Coppola, and Carine Roitfeld) as well as that of powerful icons such as Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Diana Vreeland.

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)
