Sadly, what might have resulted in a somewhat amusing tale is nothing more than a series of fleeting fashion crushes thinly disguised as ‘fashion icons’ stacked one after the other.

Synopsis

I Want to Be Her! is part memoir and part illustrated fashion guide, written by one of fashion's most accessible, trusted, and inspiring writers. Andrea Linett, the cofounder of Lucky magazine, shares her personal story of growing up and finding her way to fashion, and the figures who guided her along the way. Through short descriptions and memories, we meet 50 women across five eras of her life--some passing strangers, some casual friends, some close confidantes--who each made a lasting impression and helped her form her own personal style. In addition, each woman is captured in an illustration by Linett's longtime collaborator, Anne Johnston Albert, and fashion tips accompany each entry.
