The fashionably funny new novel from the bestselling author of Pants on Fire.

Cross Bridget Jones with The Devil Wears Prada and you have this engaging romantic comedy about love, sex, friendships, and relationships...with a lot of style.

Emily Pointer, stylist for Chic magazine, has a rule about fashion: never wear anything older than six months...unless it's so old you can pass it off as vintage. And never, ever fall in love, unless it's for a killer pair of Manolos.

With a witty and biting insider's take on the fashion world; the crazy circuit of the New York-London-Milan-Paris designer shows, and the most humbling of all experiences, love, Maggie Alderson delivers a poignant, funny novel of success and revenge, friendship and flirtation, passion and Prada that's as fresh and rejuvenating as an afternoon at Bliss Spa.

About the Author:

Maggie Alderson was born in London and lives in Sydney. She was editor of Elle in the UK, has worked for many other magazines and newspapers, and is a popular writer with the Sydney Morning Herald.

From Booklist:

Emily Pointer seemingly has it all--a job as a stylist for the hot British magazine Chic, a killer wardrobe, trips to glamorous locales, and a cosmopolitan husband. So why is she jeopardizing it all for an affair with a roguish Australian photographer? Perhaps because everything's not as it seems on the surface. Emily and her husband have a relationship based more on how they look together than how they feel about each other. Emily's superficiality and her ambivalence about her infidelity initially make her a very unsympathetic character. But, after a somewhat inauspicious introduction, she begins to change--coming to terms with her tumultuous childhood and reexamining her shallow lifestyle. Alderson, a former editor for British Elle, has a lighthearted, engaging style. Her descriptions of Fashion Week--all wild parties, gossip, and thrilling shows--will draw in wannabe fashionistas, but her often flippant attitude toward relationships may alienate more conservative readers.
