Overview

The art and science of image is not easily accessible to Americans. If we are indeed global leaders in innovation and technology, then we have an inherent responsibility to look like global, innovative leaders.” Eve Michaels, author, motivational speaker and image expert, believes that Americans should know what attributes and characteristics make them unique, and how to communicate them through their visual appearance. “We have forgotten about how much our image affects our psyche and every aspect of our lives. We've let our body and grooming go unattended to, and our manners and common courtesy are becoming a thing of the past." In Dress Code, Eve feels a personal responsibility to educate this country with an insightful and transformational journey derived from her thirty years of professional image expertise and in-depth teaching techniques on the art and science of image and beauty. Eve wants to help Americans upgrade their personal appearances to enhance their lives and careers, boost their self-esteem, and achieve the global respect they deserve. "It is my sincere dream and desire to 'Wake America Up' one person at a time, one city at a time, and one nation at this time!”

Meet the Author

One look at Eve Michaels and you are acutely aware that she cares about her appearance from the top of her glossy auburn hair to the tip of her elegant patent leather stiletto pumps. She cares so much about appearances that she has made a lifelong career out of helping others improve theirs. Eve's introduction to the world of beauty was born out of her early childhood years of tragedy, when her mother suffered permanent brain damage and was institutionalized for life as a result of a car accident. Eve's intention to “heal” her mother came in shades of pink and red; the hues of make-up she used to make her mother “feel pretty,” and hopefully come home to stay. Realizing the impact that this had on her life led to a mission to change America's perception and reflection of beauty, both inwardly and outwardly. Eve Michaels has spent over thirty years in the business as an internationally acclaimed “Transformational Makeover Expert” and the creator of the Fast Track To Fabulous? program. A nationally recognized author and motivational speaker who captivate audiences globally, Eve teaches people life changing, easy-to-follow skills that quickly transform their image and their attitude about dressing well. Eve has an engaging and relatable gift for helping her clients understand what makes them special and how to create the right image that communicates their unique abilities and talents. It is no wonder her work is often called “Makeover Magic!” Her soft voice, compelling scenarios, edgy delivery and “walk the walk” style make for an entertaining escape into a new dimension of beauty and inspiration. “We are playing in a global economy, not just imperialists. We need to bring back our class and image. We look like a nation of slobs and not like world-class leaders.”
