I literally have never seen a fashion book that bad. I like the style on Gossip Girl and I was really looking toward this book. I have pretty much everything else on subject - InStyle and Lucky books, Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, books of Chanel, Carolina Herrera, The Pocket Stylist etc etc. Any one of them is vastly superior to this book. I am absolutely baffled that any agent would look at this book and think this will be a success.
If you have never read a single fashion magazine, then perhaps this book will be of interest. There are maximum 10 photos, rest are drawings. Text is so on the 5th grade level ie. 2 pages on there are 4 types of sweater: turtleneck, tunic, v-neck and crew neck. Stunning, isn't it? And comments that go along are: V-neck for victory! Sail your crewneck to the shore or smth stupid like that.
Not sure who is targeting either. On one section he shows how to cut up a t-shirt (which everyone has already done), then there's a picture of neon pink leggings next to a pencil skirt. I was bewildered. Any fashion book will have the content of this one but so much more. This guy is so lucky to have a job.

As a fashion blogger, I love to read style books. So I was quite excited for this book especially since it's written by Eric Daman. I figured the man who dresses the Gossip Girl cast so spectacularly would surely write a fantastic, well-informed book. However, I'm disappointed to say that this book was a complete waste of money.

The book features incredibly basic information that a majority of people are already well aware of. For instance, there are pages dedicated to the different styles of skirts, jeans, tops, and cardigans. There is even two pages dedicated to classifying different skirt lengths! Aren't we all already aware of what classifies a skirt as mini, knee-length, ankle length, etc.? There are even sections on types of bras and underwear. Seriously, how superfluous is that? (Come on, Daman! Is this the best you could do, really?)

At twenty-one years old I found this information to be completely useless. I didn't learn anything new from Daman. Perhaps the information within this book is better suited to a middle-schooler who knows nothing about clothing.

Bottom line: Don't waste your money. If you really still want to read it, go to a bookstore, take a seat, and read it. It will take all of fifteen minutes.

I'm so glad I didn't end up ordering this book, but looked through it (it took all of ten seconds) at the bookstore instead. I expected it to be full of pictures of cool clothes, fun gossip girl fashion and inspiration. This has none of that. The paper quality is even bad! There are barely any pictures, the fashion that IS there is awful and unwearable, and the "inspirations" are things we've already seen a million times (turtleneck, t-shirt, basic dress...)yawn. Maybe buy used, but even then, don't bother with this book unless you're in 6th grade.

When i bought this book i thought it was going to be brilliant, i was so excited about it because hes a great stylist on GG and i love the show for the fashion as well as the story lines.
I was disappointed with the book because i thought it was going to be more about the clothes on the show and how the characters are styled...it is probably my own fault for not reading more what the book was about.
It 's mainly about what clothes to suit anyone's body shape and how to pick signature pieces for yourself.
Pretty much standard stuff you'd get told in ones usual cosmo mag.
