A celebrity fashion designer gives every woman the red-carpet treatment in this foolproof guide to choosing clothes that make you look fabulous-with tailor-made tips for forty-eight body types.

The average American woman is 5"4' tall, weighs 160 pounds, wears a size 14, and bears no resemblance to the typical runway model. Yet the runway model sets the standard for "ideal" wardrobes. Top L.A. designer Bradley Bayou has dressed women of all shapes and sizes and knows that every woman has her own natural combination of silhouette shape, height, and weight. Style is not about fitting into the size you think is sexy, it is about picking clothes that fit your body correctly and that create balance. Perfect balance is perfect style.

In The Science of Sexy , Bayou helps readers identify their silhouette shape (triangle, inverted triangle, rectangle, or hourglass) and combines that information with a height/weight chart to determine which of forty-eight "fitting rooms" to go to in the book.

This was a fun book to read and browse through. A little informative though it seems more for fashion gurus than someone looking for just themselves as it'll end up being maybe two to four pages that cover one persons size and shape. Still an interesting book that I would check out again.

I thought this was a very thorough book for body types and how to make the most of them. I've tried a couple of his top suggestions and even for every day looks they work! Worth the read.
