Giveaway: "Fierce Style" by Christian Siriano


Book Description from the Publisher's Website:

"In 2008, Christian Siriano made headlines as the youngest designer to win the hit reality series

Project Runway. But the now twenty-three-year-old is bigger than a TV celebrity. From his prodigious fashion talent to his one-of-a-kind personality, Christian is the embodiment of fierce style.

Now in his first book, he helps readers discover how to look, feel, and act fierce in everyday life. With tips from some of fashion and Hollywood's biggest names -including Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, and Vanessa Williams -- along with gorgeous original sketches by Christian, never-before-heard stories, and behind-the-scenes photos, he tells his journey of developing his own fashion sense and overcoming obstacles to success.

Giving advice on creating personal style, sharing tips on building self-confidence, and revealing his own list of fashion dos and don'ts, Christian shows how to use one's unique strengths to get ahead - and go from tickity-tack to totally flawless."

He previously honed his fashion chops in London working for top fashion designers Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. His first collection debuted at New York fashion week in fall 2008.

  17. I hate remembering this outfit... I was only nine when I wore it, but I wore it in public. Even then I knew better! Green (and a sickly shade, of course) sweatpants and a matching sweatshirt. Except that it wasn't a baggy, comfy sweatshirt... it was tight and had some sort of bright pink logo on the front. Worn with sneakers. It was... horrible. Just horrible.

  23. I remember the days when I had to match every single accessory. My shoes had to match my bag, which had to match my belt, which had to match my earrings, which had to match my bangle bracelets...I'm sure you get the picture. But I am sure at the time I thought I was a "hot mess"!!!

  24. I had a goth phase and I look back at pictures and wondered what I was doing. I had the baggy back pants with the straps, fish nets and the black nail polish.
