About this Item

xix, [1], 165, [7], Illustrations (some in color). Boldly inscribed on fep. DJ has minor wear and soiling. Publishers promotional card on a booksigning laid in. Steven Cojocaru (born July 4, 1970), is a Canadian television fashion critic. He was born in Montreal, Quebec into a Romanian Jewish family. Cojocaru started out as a magazine columnist and eventually began working on American television shows as a correspondent and interviewer on Entertainment Tonight, The Today Show, The Insider and Access Hollywood. He graduated from Wagar High School in 1979 and later earned a Bachelor's Degree in Communications from Concordia University. Cojocaru began working in 1991 for the Canadian fashion magazine Flare. After moving to Hollywood, he began writing a column. He was People Magazine's West Coast fashion editor, and has written two autobiographies, Red Carpet Diaries: Confessions of a Glamour Boy (2003) and Glamour, Interrupted (2008). In 2003 and 2004, Cojocaru worked on American Idol, helping the contestants select new wardrobe pieces from show sponsor Old Navy. On May 6, 2008, he appeared with John Oliver in a segment for The Daily Show, "Ticket to the Pollies". Cojocaru has had two kidney transplants. The first (donated by his best friend) was removed when it became infected with polyomavirus. The second transplant in 2005, where his mother Amelia gave her kidney, has to date been successful. Warning: No celeb was spared during the writing of this tongue-in-cheek stroll down the red carpet of fashion, fame, ego, and blinding glitter. Written by the man who isn't afraid to tell Christina Aguilers her hairdo is a disaster, Red Carpet Diaries could make you feel you know more about Hollywood shtick than Nicole Kidman's stylist. If you begin to get too much pleasure from Cojocaru's lizard-skin-jumpsuited journey from ridiculed misfit to #2 on Cynthia Rowley's speed dial, put the book down and turn on an episode of Antiques Roadshow to calm your heart rate.
