While you might not recognize her name, you’re undoubtedly familiar with her work: Janie Bryant is the Emmy-winning costume designer on AMC’s Mad Men, which means she is responsible for Joan’s figure-hugging Marilyn Monroe-esque pencil skirts, Betty’s elegant Grace Kelly-inspired dresses, and Peggy’s sweet bookish style. Happily for Mad Men fans, Janie has poured all her style savvy into a new book, The Fashion File, which hits shelves next week.
The Fashion File is jam-packed with style advice, shopping tips, sizing guidance, and more. To start, Janie offers readers a peek into the Mad Men dressing room, where she reveals her design process. Further on, Janie offers a detailed look at how modern women can develop their own personal style, including where to find vintage clothing, how to put together your look each day, how to find your perfect bra size, how to use color to convey a mood, how to highlight your best assets, how to accessorize, and which ten pieces are essential to every girl. In addition, you’ll find beauty advice (how to create a red lip, how to put together a smoky eye) and product recommendations. Plus, a mini-section for men!
The Fashion File is due in bookstores on November 1. In the meantime, you can pre-order The Fashion File from Amazon.com ($17.81).
