In this unprecedented insider’s guide, fashion industry veteran Sasha Charnin Morrison opens her little black book of celebrity stylists and shares their top secrets on creating unforgettable looks, landing a choice job, and working with the pros. Interviews with key players reveal the ins and outs of the glamorous (and often gritty) world of styling, while hundreds of glossy photos illustrate good (and bad) looks. Full of real-life advice, this guide profiles famous image transformations undertaken by stars like Nicole Richie and Katie Holmes; outlines the essentials every stylist must have on hand (double-sided tape, cutlets, manzierres, Spanx, and more!) and, most importantly, shows how to get a Choo in the door and then survive in this ultra-fabulous, ultra-competitive industry.

Sasha Charnin Morrison is the fashion director at Us Weekly and has over 20 years of fashion magazine experience working for such publications as Harper’s Bazaar, Seventeen, Mirabella, Vanity Fair, Elle, and Allure.
