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.

THis book is average at most and nothing more. It is a compliation of advice from clinton Kelly on how we all can be fabulous. The pictures are very descriptive and the writing entertaining. In my opinon I think the author should have devoted more space to etiquette and behaivor. It became more a book about food and drink.

Clinton Kelly is a doll. Even though this isn't a novel I still brought this book with me to Mexico to read over and over again! There's a little bit of everything for everyone in here. My favorite part of the book was the Thank-you cards and the how to tip sections. My boyfriend's favorite part was the how to dress section and my mom's was the how to cook, how to drink, and how to decorate. See what I mean? *You do not have to enjoy Clinton's show to enjoy this helpful & entertaining book. A good read!

"While I waited to be called into the pediatrician's office for my yearly physical, I would glance up from the inevitable copy of Highlights magazine and mentally rearrange the paintings of freakishly large-eyed children and suspicious clowns hanging on the walls." - Clinton Kelly
