    One thought on “The Stylist”

    1. “Fashion is not about utility. An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity.” ----Lauren WeisbergerRosie Nixon, the joint Editor of HELLO! magazine, pens a hilarious and The Devil Wears Prada kinda sassy story, The Stylistthat follows the life of an assistant to a Hollywood celebrity stylist who flies from one glitzy award function to another ducking through the celebrity scandals and rumors and through handsome and glamorous men. Synopsis: When fashion b [...]

    2. Originally posted on This Chick Reads*Copy provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review*How can this be a debut?NO WAY CAN IT BE A DEBUT!Man, this was such an UBER fun and entertaining book! Just like watching your favourite rom com, all snuggled up on the sofa, with a big mug of hot choc (or ice cream, if you're like me) after a looong working week. It's so RELAXING, funny, easy to read and you'll never want to leave Ms Nixon's fictional world full of glitz and sparkle.The story follo [...]

    3. Rating 3.5This is a fun, light hearted read. When the main character is called Amber Green - like the traffic lights, your suspicions that this isn’t going to be taken seriously are immediately alerted and that’s just where the fun starts! Take someone who has accidentally put odd shoes on a mannequin off to work as an assistant stylist the stars for a couple of weeks and get ready for Hollywood craziness, stroppy stars, all the award ceremonies and red carpet treatment together with some my [...]

    4. This was a really fun read set in the glitzy world of styling celebrities and the awards ceremonies- with plenty of humour. Plenty of mishaps happen to Amber as she helps Mona in the new job she fell into accidentally. Can she pull it off- who else could attend an awards ceremony in a Onesie???? A lovely book that combines friendships, romance, working relationships and dream destinations with a fascinating job that keeps you on your toes working with difficult celebrities and bosses. Add in the [...]

    5. 4 and 1/2 StarsWhen Amber Green (!) becomes an assistant to stylist extraordinaire Mona Armstrong for the approaching and highly-publicized award season she can’t believe her luck. The stars, the glitz, the glamour, what more can a girl working at a trendy boutique in London want? A lot, as it turns out. Before she even has timeeaze-factor/2017

    6. Loved this book! I read it slowly to eek out the pleasure for as long as possible. I love sit down in the evenings, put my phone on silent and get lost in the world of celebrity stylist. Amber is thrown into this world by a happy accident (although she'll never admit the accident part) after Mona Armstrong visits the boutique she works at. One minute shes a shop assitant and the next she's thrust into her dream jobs (the one that a million girls wanted!)Or is she? It doesn't take her long to fig [...]

    7. Meh. I wanted to like this one - and had it been released a few years ago I probably would have devoured it. I got just over 100 pages in and I just lost interest, Amber was more interested in going to all these posh places than actually working. I wanted to know more about being an actual stylist; or working for one, than going to Soho House. It was all about the name dropping. A book like this should whip along at pace, not feel like it's dragging and it felt like it was dragging. Cut the waff [...]

    8. FULL REVIEW; mortalreader.wordpress/20 Summary;I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading The Stylist, I found the form and language of the novel perfect for my particular reading style. It was easy to digest which allowed me to easily find myself drawn into the story whilst allowing the novel itself to continuously flow.The Stylist is everything I loved about Devil Wears Prada and MORE, a difference between the two is The Stylist's setting begins and ends with Britain however it incorporates both the [...]

    9. 2 stars or 4/10 from me. Sorry to say I found this a chore to read. I lost interest in it and felt that it could've been much shorter to be honest.I was expecting great things from it with it being compared in some ways to The Devil Wears Prada, but I felt that it didn't deliver.I don't like giving up on books, as I feel that the author has taken the time to write it and the least we as readers can do is read it all. I also, often feel that if I give up on a book that I might have missed out on [...]

    10. The first thing that I'd like to say is that I - truly - haven't expected "The Stylist" to be so damn great read! Yes, it somehow reminded me of "The Devil Wears Prada" but this book has its own distinctive voice and its own brilliant characters, and I adored that it focused around award season in Hollywood and London, such as Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and, of course, the Oscars - ha, who doesn't like some celebrity spotting?This book was truly fast paced, there was not a single flat moment, and [...]

    11. Review first posted on my blog 'A Spoonful of Happy Endings': spoonfulofhappyendingsspoTwenty-something Amber Green works in an expensive clothes shop in London; not exactly her dream job, but one that could hopefully lead to something more in the future. The future, however, turns out to be just around the corner when Amber is unexpectedly offered the chance to work as an assistant to famous celebrity stylist Mona Armstrong during awards season. Before Amber knows it she is travelling to the ot [...]

    12. The cover of The Stylist is gorgeous and is what initially caught me eye, and then once I’d read the synopsis I knew I had to read this book. I have absolutely no idea about fashion but this book just called to me!Amber Green is working in a boutique in London and is coasting along in life until one day she attracts the attention of stylist Mona Armstrong and before she knows it she is being whisked away to LA to style the stars during awards season! Amber has to hit the ground running and hop [...]

    13. *Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*The story follows Amber Green. She works at a fashion boutique and suddenly sees herself being assistant to star stylist Mona Armstrong. That gives her the possibility to go to LA for The Golden Globes and The Oscars. She is also involved in the preparations for the BAFTAs. Being the assistant to Mona means meeting and working with a lot of stars.Amber is really busy through that and has to help everywhere, especially when Mona is [...]

    14. A chic-lit style of book, I have missed those. The humour, the lightness, all fun you know.Amber does have a good eye, but she is not super into everything. I guess she is more the artistic type of person. She does like fashion, and gossip. And I did like her, she was normal.And who could say no when a famous stylist asks you to help out! Money, glitz, glamour and Hollywood! Nope, even I could not say no, I know nothing about fashion. Amber at least works in boutique and knows her labels.The boo [...]

    15. Review by ireadnovels.wordpress The cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous, I would love a T-shirt in the exactly the same design. The Stylist is a must-read for The Devil Wears Prada and Shopaholic fans. I loved reading this novel, which Hello Editor Rosie Nixon debut novel draws upon her own experience of the fashion world to create this fast-paced ,fun-loving book about fame, love and style. In less than five minutes Amber Green had gone from shop girl in an exclusive London boutique to wi [...]

    16. Ok story (In the end) but it dragged. The book had big sections where nothing significant happened. I felt like giving up between pages 150-320 so I took a break but stuck with it and towards the end things began to happen. It turned out to be an ok read. The name dropping and other elements of the story felt very shallow and too materialistic (in my opinion) which got really annoying and added to the lack of substance. Some of the characters were not introduced well or at all; For instance a ch [...]

    17. One thing that I learnt is, to live by your own mean. Is it okay to have a wardrobe full of designers when you struggle to pay rent?

    18. In ‘The Stylist’, debut author Rosie Nixon takes us into a world of high-class fashion and celebrity lives from the eyes of Amber Green, who fails in an epic way in fulfilling Nixon’s ideaThis review was first published for The Hans IndiaLacklusture tales in an uber-glam worldA "fortunate" shoe incident lands 20-something Briton, Amber Green, a job with stylist for Hollywood celebrities, Mona Armstrong. Things get crazy in Amber's life what with the award season lined up; the Golden Globes [...]

    19. The Stylist by Rosie Nixon for me was a good read though I have to admit it did take me a while to really get into the story of Amber Green as she lands her so-called dream job, not realising what she really was going to get into when she signed the deal with Mona a celebrity stylist who certainly is one character who I will not forget in a hurry.Amber Green was a very likable character who I could not fail to like as she tries her best to work for those she could only have read about in her fav [...]

    20. I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in return for an honest review.The Stylist is the debut novel from Rosie Nixon, celebrity/fashion magazine editor and it is an absolutely fantastic debut!I don’t tend to read celebrity/fashion magazines (except during train journeys), however I will still admit to having a bit of a fascination with the glamour of celebrity life. As such, I found the premise for The Stylist to be very interesting. Nixon has written about wha [...]

    21. An amusing, fun and light-hearted readAmber Green works as a shop assistant at the glamourous London boutique Smith’s, frequented by the rich and famous on the hunt for their next show-stealing outfit. When a regular customer, A-lister stylist Mona, needs an assistant ASAP to help her with the fast-approaching awards season, Amber finds herself swept off to LA where she has to help the eccentric Mona deal with dressing a variety of dazzling and demanding Hollywood stars. Amongst the stress and [...]

    22.   The Stylist,  Rosie NixonReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsGenre:   women’s fictionSome years before the film I found the book The Devil wears Prada was a fun read but with a serious side hidden among the humour. this book reminds me of that, the way it details the silliness of life in Celeb World, where a fashion faux pas could be a simple as the wrong shade of nail polish, and the wrong outfit is a fate worse than death. In fact this is epitomised in the hotel fire alarm scenario [...]

    23. Originally posted on: albainbookland/2016/02The Stylist is Rosie Nixon's debut and what a debut! As it says in the cover, it's perfect for The Devil Wears Prada and Shopaholic fans because it has that same fun spark that made those books so great. Actually, now that I think of it, this book would make a fabulous movie too with its fast paced plot and with the lovely Amber Green (almost) getting the hand of the crazy world of fashion and styling the stars.But now to the story. I found it highly e [...]

    24. 4.5 StarsThe Stylist is a fast paced, hugely entertaining story, set during the madness that is award season. Amber Green despite not really knowing fashion, stumbles into an assistant stylist job, with big stylist to the stars Mona Armstrong. In a story that goes from the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and the Ocscars, taking in a premiere, multiple red carpets and then an exotic wedding, you barely pause for breath as Amber helps keep all the stars looking brilliant. Of course nothing is as simple [...]

    25. Rosie Nixon has been joint editor of Hello Magazine for the last five years so she knows a thing or two about Stylists. This is her debut novel and it’s a real delight. Laugh out loud funny with some great characters that you really want to get behind. Amber Green is an unlikely fashionista. She got her position working as an assistant at Smiths, a high end designer clothes store, when her friend got another job and recommended her for the role. She enjoys the work but it’s largely steaming [...]

    26. *****Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review*****This is a fun, fashionable story about a stylist, perfect for the awards season. I quite liked it - but I can see that it would be absolutely perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series. This feels a lot like early 2000s "chick lit" - in a good way. It is a little bit too based on the heroine lurching from one disaster to the next, but that's a problem I have with Kinsella's books too - I've found I prefer my heroines to be [...]

    27. This book is just fun. Its enjoyable, light and incredibly funny at times. It offered a nice distraction travelling to work in the mornings when the cold was clinging onto my eye-lashes. There must be an easier way to read with gloves on? When I read the plot and looked at the page count, I wondered how much there is to fill. But there wasn’t a moment where I felt like I was reading filler paragraphs. The books is very fast paced and has plenty of interesting personalities that are exploding w [...]

    28. In The Stylist the reader gets a glimpse behind the curtain of fashion glam and glitz. How our perception of the fashion industry and celebrity lifestyle doesn't necessarily match the reality of this particular industry and the lifestyles of the rich and famous.Nixon puts the emphasis on her character as a whole, as opposed to just her romantic escapades. She is strong willed individual with a lot of ambition, and she isn't afraid to make right choices for herself, her career and her life.A fash [...]

    29. Enjoyable, glittering, glamorous.Can being in the wrong place at the wrong time make your life unexpectedly wonderful? Wonder is what Amber Green feels when she is mistakenly offered a job and she’s asked to work with infamous jet-setting stylist to the stars, Mona Armstrong. She finds herself in the high-heeled shoes of a stylist without the right competence but with surprising improvised talent - or unbelievable luck? Amber hits the ground running, helping to style some of Hollywood’s hott [...]
