The ELLEments of Personal Style was created by ELLE Magazine editors Joe Zee and Maggie Bullock and showcases 25 modern fashion icons on how to dress, shop and live. This is the perfect gift for the aspiring fashion designer/stylist or friend who simply eats, breathes and lives fashion.
What I like about this book is that it not only features the expected fashion icons like Fergie and Milla Jovovich, but also those ladies that are not in the industry but still has a love for fashion, such as Katherine Pope, a TV Producer who has been in charge of television hits like 30 Rock and Heroes. I also like that the book does a snapshot of each person featured sharing their background, fashion sense and style inspirations. There are quotes, photos and my absolute fave item: an inspiration board that highlights the individuals favorite shops, obsessions, who their style icon is and why, as well as a style study that includes photos of each icon at various events.
This is one book any fashionista should have on her shelf so if you have a gal pal or best boy that loves fashion this is the gift for them.
