Earlier this month Project Runway Season 4 winner, Christian Siriano, released his premiere book Fierce Style: How to Be Your Most Fabulous Self. The book is receiving mixed reviews; on one hand it is criticized for the lax writing style which is more conversational than analytical. On the other hand the book is praised for being informative and not overly self indulgent as other celebrity written style guides have been in the past. The book is divided into 4 sections;
- “Lady, You Look Fabulous!!!!” – A section personal style
- “Finding Your Inner Ferocia” – Tips on feeling confidence
- “Every Day Is a Runway… Work It” – A section on acting fierce, being social and managing your life.
- “Inspire Me!!!!” – Material to celebrity fashion icons, trendsetters and other matters of pop culture
The book also features fashion tips from Victoria Beckham and Heidi Klum. So the main down point to the book is that if you are not a Christian fan that you will not be fan of the book. Parts of the book are very much a memoir of his life and struggle to the fashion spotlight. The book is also full of Siriano’s “unique” homemade language such as trannylicious and ferocia. The language can be very annoying, but other than that it is a fairly entertaining read.
He also has a line of shoes out for Payless! You would think he would design for a higher end chain, but fortunately the shoes are all under $100. Payless is known for having there customers “Pay Less” LOL. On another note, I don’t think the shoes are that cute. This is the cutest pair I seen:
You can check out the rest of the selection online at their homepage. This particular pair is called the Slither Boot and runs at $49.99.
