Her second book, entitled What Not to Wear, has won her a prestigious British Book Award and sold 670,000 copies. Constantine was born into a wealthy family; her father was successful in property and shipping sectors. She was privately educated as a child and went on to date British royalty, David, Viscount Linley, during the 1980s. Constantine has been involved in fashion for a long period, originally working in America for Giorgio Armani and then John Galliano in London. She met Trinny Woodall in 1994 who both proceeded to write a weekly fashion column, Ready to Wear. They founded the website Ready2shop , a dot-com fashion advice business, and wrote their first fashion advice book in 2000, Ready 2 Dress, both of which failed. From there they were commissioned to BBC Two to host the style series, What Not to Wear, from 2001 to 2005. She made regular appearances as a style advisor on The Oprah Winfrey Show and following her success on the shows, she went on to co-host Trinny & Susannah Undress... On ITV in 2006 and Undress the Nation in 2007. Constantine and Woodall have now dressed over 5,000 women. She has co-written many fashion advice books with Woodall, some of which have become best-sellers in the United Kingdom and United States.

7 Schreier, Sandy Hollywood Gets Married
Clarkson Potter 2002 0609808397 / 9780609808399 First Edition Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
176 pages, well illustrated, pictorial wrappers, very good. Stated first edition. From the publisher: "Everyone loves weddings, and celebrity weddings, full of spectacle and scandal, are the best of all. This amazing pictorial history of Hollywood matrimony brings us to hundreds of weddings, both on-screen and off, from the 1920s to today. "When I was a little girl, I dreamt about two things: being a bride and being a movie star," writes Sandy Schreier in the introduction to Hollywood Gets Married. Like many of us, Schreier grew up admiring the stars of her era, and she delighted in their weddings, both on-screen and off. Now, in a gorgeous and comprehensive pictorial history, she chronicles the glamour and the glitz of Hollywood nuptials. From Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier to Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett, from the original Father of the Bride to Four Weddings and a Funeral, Hollywood Gets Married takes us on a sentimental and humorous journey through the most memorable unions of the twentieth century. With hundreds of carefully researched photographs and informative captions, Hollywood Gets Married provides an insider's look at the behind-the-scenes details of movie and real-life weddings: descriptions of the costume designs, photography, bridesmaids, dresses, food, and exploits of offscreen in-laws and wedding guests and, of course, the bride and groom. Hollywood Gets Married collects in its pages the most unforgettable marriage moments of our time, the ones we love to watch again and again. No fan of movies, or weddings, will want to be without this exciting and unique celebration of cultural history." ; 10.87 X 8.43 X 0.63 inches; 176 pages
