Project Runway's Nina Garcia Launches Another Book On Style

Nina Garcia is pretty vocal about what she likes and doesn't like when it comes to style. Her words can cut like a knife, and that is why she is such a formidable judge on Bravo's hit show 'Project Runway.' And now the un-shy Nina has spelled it all out in a new book called, 'Nina Garcia's Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion.'

You either love Nina Garcia or you can't stand her. We happen to adore her and her often snobby view of fashion. She's a firecracker and fun to watch, as she gives smart advice and tough love to budding fashion designers on 'Project Runway.'

The Colombian-born beauty has been on the New York Times bestseller list before, so it wouldn't surprise us if she climbs the well-respected chart, once again.

In her new book, 45-year-old Nina Garcia teaches women how to tackle that universal question----What Should I Wear??!!.

For instance, let's say you must appear for jury duty. What exactly is appropriate for the courtroom? Nina lays it all out for the reader. From jacket to blouse to shoes, and jewelry. And the focus is always on timeless classics.

"Believe me--there's pressure when you're deciding what to wear to a meeting with an iconic fashion designer or a member of the press. It can be terrifying. But instead of panicking, I stop, take a deep breath, and remember that I speak "fashion." And by the time you have read this book, you'll be able to speak the language of fashion too, at all the key moments of your life."
--from Nina Garcia's Look Book

What does Miss Nina Garcia know? Plenty, when it comes to style. From what we uncovered, she has the proper fashion background----"she has worked in fashion houses and in fashion media, with everyone from Marc Jacobs to Elle magazine and Marie Claire."

By the way, 'Nina Garcia's Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion' is published by Voice, and is available right now at bookstores everywhere for $23.99. The book makes a great gift, ladies.

And Nina Garcia is also working on another wonderful 'project' in her life. She is pregnant with her second child, due in December. Congratulations to Nina and her husband, David Conrod!
