Gina captures the essence of Blythe through the eye of her camera!!! Who else could bring out such personality of dolls in pictures. Amazing photography of Blythe in beautiful designer outfits. Wonderful coffee table book to look at over and over!...bronxdoll :)

I expected much more from a professional photographer. I expected to be in awe, but that wasn't the case at all. I think you can go to [...] and see Blythe pics that will truly inspire you for free. I'm returning this one!

Definite waste of money!

Disappointing. Lots of photos, but not a lot of variety or quality of design. I was hoping I would get sewing inspiration, but instead, I felt I'd wasted my money. I could have made some of this stuff as a teenager. I'm not saying that to toot my own horn, but to explain my disappointment...I've been a doll seamstress for 25+ years, and have a rather critical eye. It's a nice photo book made by people who love their dolls, but it wasn't what I was looking for.

This book is just awesome !!! The pictures go grom Japan to the US and it`s amazing how Gina Garan captured such "real life like" moments. I often browse my book for inspiration when taking photos of my own Blythe doll and believe me, every picture of mine comes out different !!!

We all know Blythe is a fashion Icon but who really knew how popular and well connected she was to such great designers as Christian Dior, Versace, PRADA... and many more. Included within are the well known designers of our favorite dolls: Milk, Over The Stripes, Monno Comme Ca, Tommy February6. It's interesting to see their one of a kind designs - the ones that weren't mass produced!

If the cover picture of Blythe in Gucci isn't enough to inspire you to buy this great book I'm not sure what else will.

The pictures are gorgeous, large and bright and the designer outfits are completely adorable (You'll want them all, trust me!). Gina captures the true essence of Blythe with every shot! Buy the book, it's worth it. I can't resist buying a second to cut up and frame!

If you loved Gina's first book, "This is Blythe", you'll love "Blythe Style".

"Blythe Style" caputures in photographs the various designs made by various designers, & customizers. There are some amazing artists out there!

"Blythe Style" is a full-size, coffee table style book, so you can always keep it out for people to enjoy!!!

I got hooked on photos of these dolls a few months ago and had heard all the talk about this book. Naturally,I wanted to see how all this Blythe mania started so I made the mistake of ordering the book instead of taking a trip to my local bookstore to have a look at it before buying. Had I done that....I would never have bought the book. Want to see some fabulous photos of these incredible dolls? Check out Flickr. They are much better than those in the book. Sorry Gina, wasn't impressed.
