The Hoax Fashion Formula: Dress the Body Type You Have to Look Like the Body You Want by Mary Duffy (Body Press: $17.95).

Mary Duffy, a large-size model who owns an agency for "special size" models, is a makeover pro who claims to be able to "make any woman--any size, any shape, any age--look sensational and stylish." She has divided female body types into four categories (each of which resembles the capital letter H, O, A or X) and provides fashion tricks to make each type appear its most attractive. Much of the information Duffy provides is available in other sources, but it is put together here in an upbeat, easy-to-follow format, complete with many convincing photographs.
