Simon Doonan's Eccentric Glamour is intended as an antidote to the epidemic of slutty dressing and porno-chic which has taken over since the arrival of Paris Hilton and Tara Reid. In Simon's utopian world, conformity is the only crime and dressing down is the only faux-pas. Doonan believes that eccentric glamour is every woman's birthright. While the typical TV boobs 'n' botox make-overs force Every woman to look the same - exhibit A: "The Real Housewives of Orange County" - the transformations which he strives to provoke in this book are the very opposite. Developing a glamorously eccentric style involves revealing and magnifying everything which is distinctive and idiosyncratic about you. This book is by no means a typical style advice manual. In Eccentric Glamour you will find a unique mixture of cultural commentary and personal disclosure, generously seasoned with gushings of wildly dictatorial, provocative and reckless style advice and evenly sprinkled with one-on-one interviews with some the World's most glamorous eccentrics, including Iman, Lucy Liu, Tilda Swinton, Malcolm Gladwell, Chloe Sevigny, and Dita Von Teese.

Eccentric Glamour is written by Simon Doonan, the Creative Ambassador-at-Large, for Barney's department store. Simon Doonan started out his fashion career in 1978, and by 1986 he was the window dresser for Barney's. I am obsessed with a good fashion display, I take pictures of beautiful, interesting store fronts all the time. I bought Eccentric Glamour because I wanted to know what advice Simon had for women today. I enjoyed every page of the book, it's insightful and funny, an inspiration for YOU and your wardrobe :)
