'Intelligently written, well researched, and with more than a little sting in its tail, it will enthrall as much for its gossip (the feud with Jimmy Choo himself, the glamorous parties, the name-drops, the rehab) as for its insights into the workings of the fashion industry and the grisly imperatives of big business' TheTimes Summer Reads 'There is nothing sexier than a confident, intelligent woman. For the last decade, Lauren Goldstein Crowe and Sagra Maceira de Rosen have impressed the fashion and business worlds with their thoughtful critiques and analysis of the fashion industry. Together they make a formidable team' Tom Ford, former Creative Director of Gucci Group 'Chock full of juicy details about one of fashion's most successful luxury labels ... [this] is equal parts no-nonsense business savvy and glossy fashion world fabulousness' Glamour 'A fascinating yarn' Wall Street Journal
