Product description


Kaz Cooke's style is somewhere between Jane Austen and a hand grenade.

From the Back Cover

Take it from Kaz Cooke: "There are millions of gorgeous body shapes. Yours is one of them. Dieting doesn't work. Your thighs are pretty cute. Exercise should be fun not duty. Cheap cosmetics can be as good as expensive ones. Advertising lies. Plastic surgery sucks. Modeling can be miserable. You can recover from an eating disorder. You can read magazines and watch television critically. You can fight the Body Police". Here is a funny, reassuring read about fashion fibs and diet myths - and the truth about push-ups, push-up bras, and the great cellulite scam. It takes a hard look at lies, damned lies and beauty tips. Packed with jokes, Kaz's own cartoons, and practical ways to find real self-esteem and avoid freak-outs and rip-offs, Real Gorgeous is an indispensable boost for women aged 11 to 111.
