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.

Hachette Book Group provided a free copy of Christian's book for my review.  This opportunity was provided by the Product Review Place.  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!

OMG, LOVED you on Project Runway, and LOVE that you are putting a book out for women who aren't sticks! I've got daddy long legs and my sister has a heavy top-side and as she puts it, "the arms and legs of a guy", and has to buy basically what fits, or take something and hope the seamstress can do something with it! If they don't have tall or XX tall in pants, then I'd be wearing flood pants (and sometimes do, as that's all that seems to be out there, especially for summer!) HELP! I NEED your book! PLEASE!
