Boy George Fashion and Make-Up Book
by Wayne and Gerardine Winder, and Christine Saunders

Boy George is the most outrageous dresser to hit the limelight in the last decade. His distinctive and rainbow-colored image epitomizes the extravagance of the 1980s. Although his look has been perfected by London's top designers, the philosophy behind it is inexpensive and extremely simple.

In this step-by-step guide, packed with extraordinary Boy George color photographs, the authors explain how you can recreate this glittering look. The first part of the book contains 28 colorful illustrations for 11 maginificent garments, which have been specially selected so that even those who have never before attempted to make their own clothes can come up with a dazzling outfit. There are also instructions on how to create your own flamboyant hats, hairstyles and, in the last part of the book, illustrated expert tips on make-up.

The Boy George Fashion and Make-up Book is the fun book of the 80s no self-respecting fan can do without.
