His red carpet creations have stopped traffic on stars like Catherine Zeta Jones and Kate Winslet, and now Carmen Marc Valvo is bringing his A-list beauty and style tips to the masses with his new book Dressed to Perfection: The Art of Dressing for Your Red Carpet Moments. Two of his superstar clients, Vanessa Williams and Katie Couric, have pitched in to pen the foreword to the glossy tome dedicated to helping women find and celebrate their best features for their own mini “red carpet” moments. The designer, who has teamed up with colon cancer screening advocate Couric to talk about his own battle with the disease, said in a statement that every woman should live in the moment: “Although the occasion for dressing in evening attire does not occur as often as I would like, I don’t believe that this is any reason not to infuse a bit of glamour into everyday life.”
