Random House, Inc.
A new kind of style book with the inspiring and empowering message that “true style is self-acceptance,” profiling stylish influencers and celebrities who defy the cookie-cutter looks of today’s fashion magazines.
 
The mother-daughter team behind the enormously popular websites StyleLikeU and What’s Underneath profile trendsetting artists and creatives of all ages, body types, races, and genders to embrace how self-expression and self-acceptance are the most important means of achieving personal style.
 
Featuring people with original and creative style such as actress Lea DeLaria, who embraces her butch style with whimsy and humor; model and Miley Cyrus–muse Melanie Gaydos, who lives with a genetic disorder and who sees beauty as a state of being that she has achieved; designer Betsey Johnson, who continues to exert creative genius into her 70s; or Tallulah Willis, who has learned to keep a positive self-image in today’s negative tabloid culture. A wealth of photographs reflects each person’s unique look, while interviews reveal how their journey affects and informs their style. Throughout the book, the authors include inspiring manifestos such as: “Disentangle Style from Fashion”; “Dress to Express Your Inner Spirit”; “Beauty Is a State of Mind”; and “Turn Your Struggles Into Strengths”.
 
By illustrating that personal style emanates from one’s comfort with oneself, this volume powerfully demonstrates that true style is what’s underneath.
