In Fierce Style, the youngest ever Project Runway victor (and audience-voted "Fan Favorite") struts his stuff in original sketches, behind-the-scene photographs, and insider stories about the show, designing, and the fashion business.

    Fierce Style Review

    If you don't know who Christian Siriano is, he was the 2008 (Season Four) Project Runway winner. Winning Project Runway is a big deal for those in the fashion world but the bigger feat is the fact he's only 21 years old.

    The book is broken down into four sections chock full of useful tips for all women:

    1.Lady, You Look Fabulous!!!! This section is helpful tips in finding your personal styles and what to do as well as what not to do! For example, he says to not wear UGG boots and I'm right there with him! He advised on how to find your own signature style. His tips are spot on such as if you are large breasted, you should try to elongate your top half. I was really surprised as he does know what looks good and what doesn't and he's not just catering to stick women.

    2.Finding Your Inner Ferocia is a nice section on finding yourself. He explains how the clothes is only one aspect of what makes you fierce. It's really a great breakdown on confidence, self-esteem and just finding out how to love yourself. There is much more in this section that you have to read it to find out!

    3.Every Day is a Runway...Work It is about taking chances, finding yourself, confronting change and again, much more is included in this section. There really is good, sensible tips throughout the entire book. For example, what you can do with five valuable minutes and he uses the example of knowing where you put the keys so you don't have to spend five minutes looking for them and missing a traffic light later thus throwing off your whole day. Every minute does count!

    4.Inspire Me is the ending to a complete package of hints, tips and inspiration to get to the total fierce you. For someone so young, he really has invaluable, sensible solutions to become the person you might want to become.

    You don't have to be flamboyant or a super model to be fierce. All it takes is practical sense, confidence and some good inspiration. Christian is a prime example of a success story and this is a must read if you want a boost or are in the fashion industry or just want to be entertained as he's a showman!

    Hot Mess, me? Never!

    I absolutly loved the terms Christian uses throughout the book. A lot of the words he used on Project Runway and I immediately recognized them when I was reading the book. Part one and two were my favorite chapters, the do's and don'ts were very helpful. Also the 10 Things Not to Wear If You Want To Be Fabulous is great, I totally agree on the second thing listed which is UGG boots. I never liked them and never will. Christian Siriano rocks and so does this book.

    Fierce Style

    don't watch Project Runway, so I wasn't familiar with Christian Siriano although I recognized who he was and had actually seen him walking around West 14th St. But I have a few acquaintances who are fond of Project Runway, so I was curious to see why Christian Siriano was so popular. When offered the chance to review his Fierce Style: How to Be Your Most Fabulous Self, I readily signed up.

    Not being familiar with Christian, I wondered whether it would be self-congratulatory and smug. It isn't. Instead, Christian is encouraging and funny. Fierce Style is chatty and full of Christian's personal approach to dressing and style. He's quick to share the fashion mistakes that he'd made as he developed his own style. Instead of name-dropping, Christian comes up with suggestions of designers, stores, magazines, and ways of looking at fashion, Fierce Style is accessible, helpful, and a fun read.

    The book itself is divided into four parts: "Lady, You Look Fabulous," "Finding Your Inner Ferocia," "Everyday is a Runway... Work It," and "Inspire Me." I liked the first part of the book best. In Lady, You Look Fabulous, Christian guides you to avoid pitfalls, to identifying what works for you and to developing your signature look. He gives a range of items and designers in different price points. His tone and his advice sort of reminds me of the advice I'd get from my fashionable cousins and friends. I also liked the lists that Christian would weave into the book, such as, "Easy Ways to Fab Up Your Outfit" and his "Top 10 Dream Pieces (and their corresponding Reality Pieces)."

    Overall, Fierce Style is a fun and helpful read.

    Fierce Style = Ferosh

    Christian Siriano was far and away my favorite contestant on Project Runway to date. His witty banter and amazing talent, especially at his young age, continue to impress me. The pictures are phenom and Christian's banter continues as expected. The only issue I have with the book is that instead of giving you a guide, Christian tells you what to do to look like a certain person; unlike books by Rachel Zoe and Nina Garcia, who guide you along and help you to develop the tools to embellish your own style. Christian's book is funny and fun, but a guide it is not. However, if you're a fan and you're looking for some specific looks, I highly recommend it.
