About the book:

What Not to Wear is based on Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine's BBC television programme of the same name. The show has given a whole new meaning to the phrase "fashion victim": each week a member of the public (kindly nominated by their "friends") is done up (or, perhaps more accurately, done over) by Trinny and Susannah--a couple of Sloane-style gurus who are spikier than a pair of Manolo Blahnik stilettos. The pair mercilessly ridicule each poor specimen's dress sense until, browbeaten into submission, the unfortunate victim is forced to see the error of their sartorial ways. Ready to accept the experts' advice, the subject is then given 2000 for a wardrobe refurbishment. Infuriatingly, the diabolical duo is usually right and an astonishing number of ugly ducklings are duly transformed into swans.

Nowhere near as much fun as watching the girls at work but infinitely preferable to acquiring their advice first hand, this book provides an invaluable guide to avoiding fashion faux pas. Separated into chapters themed by body shape--"big tits", "flabby tummy", "short legs" and so on--it provides step by step instructions on how to choose flattering, fashionable cuts and colours. "Looking stylish", they unsurprisingly declare, "is as much about knowing what not to wear as it is about knowing what suits you." With lists of golden rules and an index of boutiques, this volume, surely one of this season's essential purchases, will have you hot to trot in no time at all. --Travis Elborough
