As exciting to look at as it is to read, The Looks Book is guaranteed to be a must-have book for teens and young women everywhere. A fascinating exploration of the history, culture, science, and business of beauty, this is also the first book to empower women to simply have fun with their looks. Throughout the book, real quotes from other looks-obsessed girls will help readers to put their own body image issues into perspective. And real-life examples of a stunning range of beauty archetypes help young women to re-define their concepts of beauty, while emphasizing self-expression, self-invention, and a healthy irreverence toward traditional ideals.
