I Want to be Her!

I Want to be Her!

Love Loss and What I Wore for a new generation; equal parts memoir and illustrated fashion guide written by one of fashion’s most accessible, trusted and inspiring American writers.

I Want to Be Her! Is Andrea Linett’s personal story of growing up and finding her way to fashion and the women who were, sometimes unknowingly, guides along the way. The book will look back at the women who have influenced Andrea’s personal style for the past 40 years. Through description and memory Andrea introduces us to fifty women across 5 eras, some were passing strangers, some casual friends, some close confidants, who made a lasting impression and helped her form her own personal style. Each woman is captured in an illustration by Anne Johnston Albert, whose artwork accompanied Linett’s popular “Fashion Babble” feature from Lucky Magazine.
