Fashion is more than the right pair of jeans or a cool micro-mini; it is a potent vehicle of self-expression. It is everywhere around us, yet elusive as the perfect shade of lip gloss. So what is style? Where does it come from? Why does it matter? And which one suits you best? Find out in Fearless Fashion! While deconstructing seven of today's hottest looks, this little book gives juicy tidbits of fashion history, shows trendy celebrities and the styles they embrace, and offers creative ways to personalize any look. The first book from the What's Your Style? series, Fearless Fashion is a perfect fit for any girl trying to find her inner super-model!

About the Author:

Alison Bell is an LA-based freelance writer, whose articles appear regularly in Parenting Magazine, Baby Talk, and WomenÂ’s World. She is a former managing editor and advice columnist for Teen Magazine, and was also a contributing writer and editor for Sassy. She has written several books for pre-teens and teens, including "Your Body, Yourself: A Guide to Your Changing Body" (Lowell House, 1996) and "Reality Check: Q&A Advice on Life, Love and Relationships" (Scholastic, 2001), and most recently for Lobster Press: "Let's Party!" (2005) also from the "What's Your Style" series, and a new fictional series beginning with "Zibby Payne & the Wonderful, Terrible Tomboy Experiment" (October 2006).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10–Bell devotes a separate chapter to each of seven teen fashion trends: "Preppy Chic," "Punk Rock," "Goth Glamour," "Hipster Cool," "Skater Style," "Boho Grace," "Fly-girl Flair." She discusses what makes each one unique, cites celebrities who embody the look, and gives suggestions for achieving it. Opening chapters ask readers to think about their personal style and give a brief history of some fashions over the centuries. The last chapter has tips on looking one's best. The conclusion urges teens to experiment and to keep in mind that style develops over time, and that "The best fashion trend is to be true to yourself." Color photos of celebrities and plentiful, mod illustrations enhance the text. Girls will enjoy thumbing through this book as their first step into the world of fashion.–Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
