Revew & Giveaway: Fierce Style by By Christian Siriano (Project Runway Winner)







I am a recent fan of Project Runway but I missed the season when Christian Siriano was the winner. It's a fun show to watch and see the contestants create amazing , unique and some off the wall and bizarre fashions. I like that the show encourages out of the box thinking and creativity. I am not a fashion diva but I can dream!




Christian Siriano was the youngest designer to win Project Runway in 2008. He is only 23 and has already made a name for himself in the fashion world. Now, he is also an author of Fierce Style, in which he shares his story and his philosophy about living a "Fierce" life and not allowing fear to stop you from creating your own personal style. The book is full of helpful fashion hints, behind the scenes photos and his personal experiences with famous people. One of my favorite pictures showed Whoopi Goldberg in a dress that Christian designed for her which highlighted her gorgeous legs. This is not a feature that Whoopi usually shows as she prefers more comfy clothes. Christian has a sense of humor, determination and boldness. He even has his own lingo of words which you find sprinkled throughout the book and a glossary in the back of the book with definitions. He also gives advice on creating your own personal style, building self-confidence and reveals his own list of fashion dos and dont's.



*Thanks to Hachette for providing a copy of this book for review. I am an Amazon associate.
