Book Review | Fierce Style by Christian Siriano
Title: Fierce Style: How to Be Your Most Fabulous Self
Author: Christian Siriano
About the Book:
In 2008, Christian Siriano made headlines as the youngest designer to win the hit reality series Project Runway. But the now twenty-three-year-old is bigger than a TV celebrity. From his prodigious fashion talent to his one-of-a-kind personality, Christian is the embodiment of fierce style. Now in his first book, he helps readers discover how to look, feel, and act fierce in everyday life. With tips from some of fashion and Hollywood’s biggest names -including Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, and Vanessa Williams — along with gorgeous original sketches by Christian, never-before-heard stories, and behind-the-scenes photos, he tells his journey of developing his own fashion sense and overcoming obstacles to success. Giving advice on creating personal style, sharing tips on building self-confidence, and revealing his own list of fashion dos and don’ts, Christian shows how to use one’s unique strengths to get ahead – and go from tickity-tack to totally flawless.
I have watched the show Project Runway Canada, but never Project Runway so I wasn’t familiar with Christian Siriano before reading this book. However, I am a fan of Project Runway Canada so I knew this book would appeal to me and was interested in learning more about Christian and reading what he had to say.
I read this book in a day. I enjoyed the Christian’s conversational writing style and the way his personality shines through the pages. I found him to be very likable, humorous and interesting. For a 23 year old man, he has lead an exciting life very different from my own.
He gives tips on how to be fierce and I have to admit that I did learn a few things. I guess I really don’t know that much about fashion designers! I also enjoyed the pictures and seeing some of Christian’s designs. This guy has talent!
If you are looking for a light, fast and fun read, then this is your book!
