Face Forward

Genre: Nonfiction, Coffee Table; Author: Kevyn Aucoin; Publisher: Little Brown & Company

Like its predecessor, ”Making Faces,” this stunning book features celebrities made up to look like other celebrities, often with startling results – Julia Roberts appears as Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis, Hilary Swank as Raquel Welch, and so on. A few of the lushly photographed incarnations in Face Forward don’t quite work: Gwyneth Paltrow, for example, doesn’t channel the spirit of James Dean at all. But the best shots – like a smoldering Martha Stewart as Veronica Lake – sizzle on the page.
