"The power of style" was brought to my attention through the testimonials from Amazon. It's an easy read, like the soap operas of the fashion magazines, where reader also glances at pictures. Actually it encloses mini-biographies of several interesting 20th century women, whom the author characterized them as the most stylish women.
Unfortunately, it delivers only a partial message on "Style".
Deceived by the title of the book, I was waiting for a keen analyze on style, like a treatise. Just reading about the lives of some "stylish" heroines, the reader can realize that their style was an elaborated fake, no wonder their adopted styles and lives collided brutally at some point in time notably after they have lost their youth and their men cheated and left them. There are very few examples like Chanel and Elsie de Wolf, which were born talented, women who found their way to the top through hard work and creation; the rest of the presented ladies were rich women, either born rich or becoming rich from marriages/arranged marriages even by trading their own children with their ex-husbands for a hefty settlement.
This is irrelevant to authentic style; money helps to create a look, but this does not mean that adopted style can be your own self. It's just an artificial envelope. Style is above and beyond money.
Authentic style is harmony itself which is reflected by all levels of an individual: physical, intellectual and spiritual. This was not explained, nor analyzed anywhere by the author.
