Hopkins, known as The Makeover Guy, explains fashion dos, don'ts and oh-no-she-didn'ts for women in the second act of their lives. A quiz helps the reader identify which of six Image Profiles suits her tastes (Casual, Romantic, Innovative, etc.); clothes, hair and makeup tips follow accordingly. Hopkins is encouraging and helpful: he does not simply tell women to clean their closets of any unsuitable clothes. He provides a checklist of what you'll need, a 10-step to-do list and a questionnaire to determine which clothes to keep and which to toss.

Hopkins's constant self-marketing can get annoying: irrelevant photos of himself litter the pages, and he wastes space touting his fashion victories over difficult clients. But his appearances on Oprah
, the book's attention to detail and some astounding before-and-after photos attest to Hopkins's expertise. (May)
