Although shows like The Rachel Zoe Project have given us a look inside the life of a stylist, there are still so many unanswered questions. Thankfully, Us Weekly’s fashion director Sasha Charnin Morrison is pulling back the curtain and offering an unprecedented insider’s guide into the lives of celebrity stylists in Secrets Of Stylists: An Insider’s Guide to Styling the Stars.
The book covers every aspect of the job—it talks about creating different looks for different occasions, how to land your dream styling job, how to work with professional stylists when you are just starting out, and how to survive in this cut-throat industry. In addition, there are interviews with key industry insiders, including Nicole Chavez and Neil Lane, reports on the style transformations undertaken by stars like Nicole Richie, and high-quality glossy photographs to illustrate every point. Finally, you’ll find a guide to the stylist’s kit—the tools every stylist should have on hand, like double-sided tape and Spanx!
Morrison has over 20 years of experience in the industry and has worked at publications such as Elle and Harper’s Bazaar, so you can be sure she has plenty of valuable insight into the styling world. And, while Secrets of Stylists is a how-to guide on becoming a stylist, it is so packed with indispensable advice that anyone who “wants in” on the fashion industry should pick it up!
Secrets of Stylists ($15.80) is available now at Amazon.com.
