A big night out can be graduation, a prom, a family wedding, confirmation, or Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Whatever the occasion, it is a time when every young person wants to look her (or his) best. This is the book that has it all – tips on planning for the big day, a countdown for getting ready, how to look great in photos, a common-sense guide to party manners, and sound advice about making sure the evening is safe as well as fun. It provides a get-ready plan, the scoop on the comfortable versus excruciating shoe debate, what to do if a zipper breaks, and of course how to accept a compliment gracefully.
Jeanne Beker, the mother of two teenage girls and fashion guru extraordinaire, writes wisely and sensitively, affirming that realities like a budget or non-model looks are no barrier to feeling and looking good. You’re on a budget? Scour vintage stores or your favorite aunt’s closet. You don’t look like a model? Take pleasure in finding your own style.
From the big question of what to wear to the essential question of how to get home safely, this is a book that’s sure to make a big night out a treasured memory.

Jeanne Beker is the host and segment producer of the internationally syndicated “FashionTelevision,” and style columnist for the Globe and Mail.

She is the author of five books including The Big Night Out and Passion for Fashion. Jeanne Beker lives in Toronto.
Born and raised in Montreal, Nathalie Dion, who studied Design Art at Concordia University, has been an illustrator since 1996. Working mainly with watercolors, she also uses ink, gouache, and Photoshop. She loves to create images that reflect the lighter side of life.
Grade 6 Up–Beker culls from her years of experience in the fashion world and her lifelong love of fashion to create a guide that's fun and filled with personal anecdotes, great style tips, and ideas. The chapter on "the shopping experience" is particularly good. The author breaks it down into eight pre-shopping steps and then helps readers navigate through the store. She also provides great advice on shopping for vintage items and accessorizing. She urges readers to develop their own style and not be a slave to trends, to think about what they feel and look good in rather than the label inside the jacket. Dion's chic, stylish illustrations portray a multicultural array of differently sized and abled girls getting ready for a night out on the town. While the book is geared toward readers with a true interest in fashion and style, it will have broader appeal for girls thinking about prom season and other formal occasions that require dressing up a bit more than usual. A must-have for budding fashionistas.–Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
