The Ellements Of Personal Style: Book Review

The Ellements of personal style
This year's hottest fashion bible: The Ellements of Personal Style has arrived.
The Ellements of Person Style celebrates Elle magazine's 20th anniversary with in-depth detail of the World's 20 most stylish icons. When I heard about this book, I just couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy!

The book features 20 case studies of the style icons and represents each one differently, using mood boards, photos, written information and collages. The book gives Elle readers and other readers, access to today's most glamorous personalities, and includes lots of photographs!

The Authors:

Joe Zee: One of the world's top stylists and Elle Creative Diretior has worked with today's leading fashion photographers. Also Zee has become famous for his advertising campains for designers and brands such as DKNY & Kenneth Cole.

Maggie Bullock: The Elle Deputy Editor is well known as a celebrity, fashion and beauty journalist, and has interviewed everyone from Marc Jacobs to Justin Timberlake. She has also written for Vogue.

My favourite study in the book. The Erin Wasson section!
I love how each page in the book is presented beautifully and inspires you more and more as you read the book!
