Brilliant, brilliant book,
This review is from: The Goddess Guide (Hardcover)
Oh my God! What an amazing book, I really didn't know what to expect and was blown away. Not only does she ask some of my favourite celebrity fashion designers and beauty gurus loads of useful questions, but they also reveal their favourite books, their favourite perfumes and the names of their favourite places. It's got a real diary feel to it and there is so much information in it that I have never, ever heard of, stuff that I never knew existed that I really want to own. It's also really entertaining, I especially like the part where she explains about working out with Linda Evangalistas celeb trainer and Linda was right next to her in the gym and it made her work herself into a huge sweat, classic! Or when she took advice from an expert on seduction and tried to allow a man to seduce her and slowed everything she did down even her speech. The guy dropped her and ran away screaming, he thought she was having a stroke, nuts! She makes me laugh out loud with some of the things she says and it is written in a really lovely way. How can one person know this amount of stuff, her head must be fit to explode. There's no bull in this book either, she's my new hero...so much in fact that I take this book everywhere with me and twist the arm of everyone I meet to get one and read her observations and tips. This little goldmine helps with buying a coat, choosing new knickers and finding the right shape jeans as well as pointing out tons of hot places that she has found around my city that I am goin to check out. It's jammed full of great info and it also looks fab, with her cute, funky little sketches, little things that she has collected from all the cities and celebrities that she visited and shots of her meeting just about everyone. I particularly love the pages where she hangs out with Tracey Emin in her studio and the crazy letter that Emin wrote on the following pages about her own house and cat. Or the day she spent with Christian Louboutin and he showed her how to draw one of his shoes and then took her ribbon shopping in Paris. It is a magnificently researched, magical book that let me look inside the world of some of my favourite people. She gives the most beautiful advice for girls kind of different from all of the other books that I have read. I think her stuff is wicked!
