Want to know your score? Read Clinton Kelly's book, "Oh No She Didn't!" Yes, the fine excerpt above is courtesy of the Clinton Kelly of TLC's "What Not To Wear." Kelly's fans will be pleased to learn that his books are even snarkier and wittier than his show. His blunt observations, wildly imaginative descriptions, and irreverent sense of humor create an irresistibly hilarious fashion commentary.
In the same vein, "Glamour's Big Book of Do's and Don'ts" exposes the worst sins in current American style through candid photographs of real-life fashion disasters. It's another highly entertaining yet informative read...perfect for a night on the couch when you want to unwind with something fun and sort of mindless.

Clinton Kelly won’t just revamp your wardrobe—he’ll revamp your life! The huddled masses yearn to be fabulous, and finally Clinton Kelly is heeding their call. As cohost of TLC’s popular What Not to Wear, he regularly transforms dumpy fashion disasters into traffic-stopping, get-an-instant-promotion, reignite-the-passion-in-that-relationship makeovers. But fabulousness doesn’t stop with style. Let’s face it: you might look good, but if you’re chomping on that crudité with your mouth wide open, nobody at the party will talk to you—even if you can explain to them what crudité actually is. Of course, the keys to being better than everyone else aren’t always so obvious. Don’t worry; Clinton’s here to help. - How do you make a flat butt look big and a big butt look flat? - What’s the one trick that will slim down your entire silhouette and make your ta-tas look va-va-voom? - How do you eat an oyster without getting kicked out of the best restaurant in town? - What’s the grammatically correct form of “lay” to use when propositioning someone? He’ll teach you how to look your best, sound your smartest, use the manners your momma taught you, poach an egg, fix a perfect gin and tonic, throw the most popular parties (and top the guest list at other soirees), make your home the envy of your neighbors, and generally be the fabulous person you always knew you could be. From the three style criteria he uses to dress any shape for any occasion, to his eloquent approach to appreciation, to his four must-memorize recipes for whipping up a last-minute meal, Clinton Kelly shares it all in Freakin’ Fabulous. less...
