Classic Hollywood stars cement signature looks that current celebrities continue to rock on the red carpet, in the clubs and for the camera. From Lauren Bacall’s lush lips to Grace Jones’ space age eye shadow, these looks are now made accessible to teens with The Look Book (May 18, 2011; $18.98), which is an illustrated hair and makeup how-to as well as comprehensive celebrity beauty trend encyclopedia.
Author Erika Stalder noted, “No one inspires us to maximize our own beauty more than celebrities, so I wanted to compile the most stunning and enduring trends in beauty history in The Look Book. Each of these styles is absolutely attainable at home, by girls of all ages.”
Employing the same passion for completeness and accuracy with which she approached her best-selling Fashion 101, Stalder creates a collection in The Look Book that spans the 1920s through the 1990s. She also references stars from the 2000s that continue the look’s legacy.
The book also includes:
- Background and quotes from each highlighted celebrity icon and a photo that
exemplifies her look
- Illustrated step-by-step instructions that include what tools are needed to achieve
each look and how long it will take
- Professional tips from celebrity make-up artist Cameron Cohen and celebrity hair
stylist Christopher Fulton that personalize or enhance each look
