DIANA DAHLIA'S Models and SupermodelsHave You Got What It Takes to Be a Successful Model? is a welcome title aimed at the aspiring model. It takes an honest look at what it takes to be a model or a supermodel. Former model turned television producer Diana Dahlia relays her experience of the industry in a clear and easily understood fashion, while the book itself is well complemented by photographs of models and their everyday work. There is also information on having a career plan, nutrition and exercise, and starting out.
   The book goes beyond catwalk modelling: it details editorial, house, part and character modelling as alternatives, and gives useful advice on dealing with agencies, schedules and photographers. Models and Supermodels is, in essence, a book which lives up to and goes beyond its claim. It succeeds in being a practical and structured guide to the industry. All those planning to enter the modelling profession would do well to have this title on their bookshelves.

PHILLIP BLOCH'S new book, Elements of Style calls on the author's knowledge of (and access to) Hollywood. Given 1997's many books and magazines which have tapped successfully into the glamour of Tinseltown, Elements of Style is bound to do well. Part of the proceeds to breast cancer and AIDS charities.
