Editorial Reviews

Resource Links
"The world of fashion and image are explored in this wonderful book aimed at teenage girls....In each of these chapters Bell creates an atmosphere of celebrating individuality and honouring personal choice....Serious topics such ad eating disorders, skin problems and protection, and building self-esteem are also explored with sensitivity in easy to understand and audience appropriate language. This book ends with a brief conclusion prompting young people to know themselves and their interests, and not be unduly influenced by friends and/or the mass media....[with a] positive message of self-concept, and self-discovery...This is a great book..."

Publishers Weekly
Fashion StatementsFor the inner clothes horse in every gal, Alison Bell offers Fearless Fashion, illus. by Jerome Mireault, the debut book in the What's Your Style? series from Lobster Press. Beginning with a Cosmo-style quiz, this perfect-bound book, with handy flaps as pageholders, encourages aspiring fashionistas to take their score and determine whether they are "Gotta Be Me Girl" or "Sporty Babe" (among others). "Fashion 101" offers a quick history of dressing through the ages, followed by ideas to adapt looks from "preppy" to "punk," to make them uniquely one's own. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 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 Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
