Publisher Comments:

Forget getting older gracefully--This is the beauty and style bible every woman has been waiting for HOW NOT TO LOOK OLD is the first--ever cheat sheet of to-dos and fast fixes that pay-off big time--all from Charla and her friends, the best hair pros, makeup artists, designers, dermatologists, cosmetic dentists and personal shoppers in the biz. Packed with eye-opening details on hair color, brows, lipstick, wrinkle-erasers, jeans, shapewear, jewelry, heels, and more, the book speaks to every woman: from low maintenance types who don't want to spend a fortune or tons of time on her looks to high maintenance women who believe in looking fabulous at any price. There's also too-old vs. just-right before and after photos, celebrity examples of good and bad style, shopping lists of Charla's brilliant buys in fashion and beauty products, coveted addresses of Where the top beauty pros go, fun sidebars--and more. Known to national audiences from her ten years on NBC's Today show, style expert Charla Krupp dishes out her secrets in this ultimate to-do list for looking hip and fabulous — no matter what your age.

Review:

"Krupp, style expert for the Today Show and former beauty director for Glamour, offers easy-to-follow, tried-and-true fashion advice for women well beyond their 20s. Presented in eye-catching, highly skimmable, fashion-magazine style, here's how to trade in the things that scream old lady (simply 'OL' in the book) for a look that's younger and hipper ('Y&H'). Krupp is straightforward about the physical shortcomings of older age. Aptly (and sometimes rather brutally) she steers readers away from these OL pitfalls. She is quick to point out that fashion that works on 20-somethings looks ridiculous on older women (i.e., bare midriffs, go-go boots and tattoos). As much about what to do as what not to do, some of the tips are as easy as wearing pink lipstick, a bra that fits properly and hair with bangs. Others take more thought, time and money — like Botox shots, chemical peels and hair extensions. Whether high or low maintenance about their beauty routine, women of a certain age who want to compete in our youth-obsessed culture will treat this easy read with interest."

This book has it all ! From EyeWear to Underwear how to 's; How Not to Look Old has the answers. The best feature of this book was the, 'brilliant buys' at the end of most of the chapters. This section gave detailed information about products talked about, including prices! I could instantly price compare and make my decision before I went to the store so I knew exactly what to look for. It answered many questions women have about thinning hair and what to do about hair that you don't want. Great advice, wonderful fashion and smart beauty advice!

Nobody wants to look old, especially the old. I mean, older. The young-old. Fifty is the new Thirty. Whatever.

I don't want to look old either, so I read a lot of books like this, many of them ridiculous.

So it quite refreshing to encounter Charla Krupp's take on "fast, effortless ways to look 10 years younger."

Ms. Krupp has a very good grip on reality and understands that (a) most women don't want to look like teenagers, they just want to look fresh and attractive; (b) most women don't have a ton of disposable cash to spend on themselves.

The book is well laid out with each chapter devoted to a particular subject (clothes, makeup, etc) and, within that chapter, suggestions and products at a variety of price points.

The style is pleasantly conversational, not pushy; the author's years of experience in the beauty field shows, as well as her own experiments.

I have tried enough of the advice in the book to know that she is on track. Dressing well but youthfully cuts years off your look; good foundation garments make a huge difference. Her advice and brand recommendations are on target.

Her product recommendations are probably worth the price of the book, because you can spend a lot of money experimenting.

This book is probably the best I've read on the subject. Highly recommended.

Great do-it-yourself Make-Over book! In our youth obsessed culture, "How Not to Look Old" gives any woman over that "certain age", just little bit of an edge. It's not about looking like you're 20 again, but a guide to avoiding the pitfalls that can date even the most youthfully spirited of us. Easy to follow tips that you can implement today, as well as advise on treatments like botox and lasers. And Krupp's first hand experience with which products actually work can save you a fortune!
