I could not disagree more with the previous reviews! I am so happy I ordered this book anyway. It is wonderful, loaded with probably hundreds of rare photos of different style epoches, personal styles and stylish women. If you are creative and if you like to experiment with your personal expression, you will find an endless source of inspiration. Definately one of the best fashion books I know, and I own many.

If you are new to fashion and if you need detailled instructions, this book might not be for you and you might do better with Trinny and Susannah. If not: Order this book. You will love, treasure and enjoy it!

I expected a book with the reader in the focus. But the focus of this book it the author. If you are interested in private photos and life of Amanda (the author)herself (lots of them), her parents, her grandparents, sister and..aged photos of celebrities (Hendrix, John Lennon or Cher in 1971)..as well as in Amandas "my favorite things", or Amandas "my cheap and chic style", "my designer shopping"...Then this is the perfect book for you.
If you are interested in style, you will only find the platitude you already know.

This book will not help you to develop any personal style, but you learn how to pronounce high-end designer names... Chanel: speak "Sha-nell"...

The book is nice as coffee-table-book, but does not serve as advice for the reader.

I completely and utterly agree with Prinzessin: This book is not very helpful. Why the title is "I love your style" I don't know - it should be "I love my style and I think Lauren Hutton's is o.k., too". Nonetheless I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in Ms Brooks' personal shopping habits and family photos.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous Pictures 23. September 2009
Von Daisy Buchanan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have lots of style books - both Lucky manuals, the InStyle guide, Rachel Zoe's book, etc. - and Brooks's book is a good addition to the genre. She's doing something slightly different here: though she's divided the book into the standard styles (classic, bohemian, minimal, high fashion, street, and eclectic), she has lots of new things to say, and the text is more substantive than I expected. Brooks has an engaging and personal writing style; she talks about her life and includes lots of pictures of herself in different style phases. Though the book is clearly aimed at average women, Brooks is writing from the perspective of someone who works at Vogue (or is at least friends with lots of people who work at Vogue). She doesn't bother with the standard list of basics everyone should own (trench, white button-down, blah blah blah) and thankfully does not include a section on flattering different figures. She does include specific outfit ideas and advice about how to wear the items associated with particular styles. The best part of the book, though, is definitely the pictures. There are lots of fantastic photos of stylish women from the last hundred years that I had never seen before. As Brooks points out, they all still look great today. All in all, this one is worth buying, even if you have several style books already. The photos and advice are inspirational and Brooks has a likable voice.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Brooks's privilege interferes with useful advice 23. November 2010
Von Mailee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this book after obsessing over it for a couple days. The pictures, as have been mentioned in other reviews, are utterly gorgeous. But beyond that this is kind of a waste of money.

I wish this book didn't masquerade as a style manual as it's really all about Brooks, her journey through fashion and (as she makes quite clear) her very privileged position in the fashion world via her (very, VERY rich) familial background. Seriously, I laughed out loud when she claimed proudly that a $300 silk tank top is totally worth it because it lasts over a year. Her "thrifty" section just feels like a weak attempt to relate to us regular fashion-loving folks, and her idea of high-low mix in fashion feels more like her throwing a bone to people who can't happily splurge on $1000 pieces she got her hands on because a designer used her as a muse. I'm the last person to judge on spending exorbitant amounts of money on expensive clothing, but to present it as an everyday and perhaps NECESSARY thing for fashion lovers is kind of ridiculous.

And because it's all about her personal style, the sections are really quite limited to her personal experience. She clearly did very little, if any, research into the styles she talks about and she presents them as the end-all, be-all of acceptable style.

This book is a thinly veiled fashion autobiography, NOT a style guide, with some of the most absurd and useless style advice I've heard outside of Vogue and Elle. But hey, the pictures are lovely, as is the overall layout and design of the book. Although Brooks probably had little to do with cultivating either.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not much in here for regular people 2. März 2013
Von J. Warfle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this book figuring it would be similar to the Lucky Guide to Mastering Any Style: a how to book about putting together a wardrobe. It turns out the book is way more high fashion, with a huge emphasis on designers and celebrities. Way too rich for my budget. It wasn't what I was looking for, but as a fashion art book it could be fun for someone thanks to all the great pictures.

With that in mind, I was going to give the book three stars, but I had to take one off due to an annoying theme running through the book where the author tries to convince the reader she's not rich. Seriously, she spends most of the book talking about her priviledged childhood and many designer friends, but insists she's just like everybody because when she went to college she didn't have as much money or clothes as her classmate, Diana Ross's daughter. Seriously? How does "Not as wealthy as a relative of one of the best selling musicians of all time" = "Not rich at all"? It gets very annoying, like when she shows us when her house was featured in Vogue magazine but insists she doesn't really live that way. I'm sure the author is a nice person, but she comes off as so naive that it's almost painful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This A*M*A*Z*I*N*G book is about STYLE and fashion!! 20. Juni 2010
Von SugarLuxxe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is so amazing it's pushed me to write my first Amazon review. I've collected a number of style and fashion books and was losing heart - there's only so many times I can read the same boring tips on what to wear to look thinner/taller/hide your flaws/show off your assets. Yawn.

This book is different - the author discusses style. True style - with images from now and the past to help you not just identify the different styles discussed, but to identify your own style icons (for example Brigitte Bardot? Ali McGraw?). This book is so great if you're looking to develop your own personal style, to be noticed for always looking pulled together and stylish or if you want to look like you're working with a stylist. The book also helps you to understand your own style, your personality and better ways to express the kind of person you are (or the person you feel like being that day) to everyone you pass. You'll feel like 'yourself' if what you're wearing expresses how you feel and who you are, or want to be.

The author covers off a few traditional styles - such as classic and bohemian, which she calls 'identifiable styles'. Each chapter shows examples of clothing and styling for that style. The chapter also shows you different variations of each style - for example in bohemian she covers off different kinds of bohemian - vintage bohemian, rock goddess bohemian, ethnic bohemian; to show you the different takes on each look.

She also looks into indefinable styles (such as street style, which she smartly advises people look at books like Nylon's Street Style; and high fashion).

This book is great for if you're looking to define your style, or to style your looks beyond the basics of looking 'good' to looking 'styled' and 'stylish'.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just what I was looking for- A style encyclopedia! 24. September 2009
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm shocked at how good this book is. There are so many personal style/ inspiration books out there, that repeat the same information over and over again ("basics", "LBDs", etc.), and I have been disappointed in most of them ("Who What Wear", "Style Clinic", etc.) However, this book has great photographs from various decades (rare in most style books), does not assume you have no idea how fashionably dress, and is organized in a simple, easy to follow format. Don't let the simple cover, and terrible "inside view" on Amazon fool you- there's a wealth of info inside this book.
