I still don't understand how he came up with some of the combinations of celebrities in the archetypes and I have a lot of problems with many of his seasonal assignments for the celebrities. For instance, he has Kristin Davis, Eva Longoria, Susan Lucci, and Rachael Ray in the same archetype - Vital Spring. Every other system refers to all four of them as Winters. Other than coloring, they don't look similar or act similar or play similar roles. I'm confused.
The information about how to find your "true" colors is good. That was easy - took about ten minutes. In Color Me Beautiful, I'm a Cool Summer and my "true" colors all happen to be among the most flattering in the Cool Summer palette. Other than the "true" colors and some information about shopping and closet arrangement, though, the system really doesn't make a great deal of sense. And how can there be a color and style book with no photos or drawings or color samples?
I might be able to find yarn in some of my "true" colors for sweaters, but it's hard enough finding any Cool Summer colors at Macys, let alone a formal dress in Blue Charcoal or Spruce Green.
I think I'll stick with Color Me Beautiful and David Kibbe's Metamorphosis for my style questions (why someone doesn't publish a book combining the two, I don't know), and Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45 by Christopher Hopkins for what to do as I grow older.

I love the idea. I just can't get into the book. Actually finding all the variations of color all over my body is not an exact science. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Whimsical
Very nice book, rather interesting insights on how to look and feel better, more sensual, more powerful, recharged. I strongly recommend it; nice job, Mr. Zyla!Published 7 months ago by Leana Aymoré Jacob
