Feel like a film star with ‘Glamorous by George’
Every month, the Fashion & Style Directory will be choosing and highlighting a fashion-related Book of the Month – and any writer who’s said to combine “witty banter and high-fashion knowledge” immediately sparks our interest, given just how much we *love* witty banter.
Fashion editor, consultant and stylist George Kotsiopoulos is probably best known as the co-host of E!’s ‘Fashion Police’, the weekly show that gives an irreverent take on “who looks fine and who should be fined”, but that’s just one of many impressive strings to his bow. Eight years in the Style department at The New York Times Magazine? Sure! Producer of photo shoots for celebrities all over the world? Of course! One of Out Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the LGBT communities? Absolutely!
Now George has written his first book, ‘Glamorous by George’, to help those of us outside Hollywood unleash our own inner movie star. Published by Abrams Image, the book is packed with 176 pages of simple, easy-to-achieve tips and advice for looking like a film star, tackling clothing, accessories and fashion as well as highlighting the best pieces for different skin colour, body types and budgets. What’s more, if you like the affectionate but no-nonsense tone of the TV show, you’ll appreciate the book’s effective blend of “practical advice and blunt observations.”
