Everyone Wants to Be Me or Do Me: Tom and Lorenzo's Fabulous and Opinionated Guide to Celebrity Life and Style Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tom and Lorenzo began blogging in 2006 with a fansite for the show Project Runway. In response to demand from their readers, they expanded to cover celebrity fashion, couture, red carpet commentary and other TV shows and TLo (as their "bitter kittens" call them) has become a household name, reaching more than 7 million visitors a month.

Thanks to their biting, insightful commentary on celebrity style, they started getting sweet missives from pear-shaped ladies who needed a boost of confidence more than fashion advice. “Every day, before you leave the house,” they instructed Lady Pear, after giving her some standard style recommendations, “look in the mirror and tell yourself, ‘Everyone wants to be me or do me.'” In this book, they explore the celebrity image and style culture with their trademark acerbic wit, from starlet meltdowns to publicity seeking pregnancies to red carpet disasters, along the way offering readers funny but inspiring takeaways and advice on understanding what constitutes great style and confident self-image: Know the venue, know the image you want to project, and sell it, sell it, sell it.

Brimming with insight, humor, and takedowns of the myths of the celebrity culture, this book offers the best of the friends readers want picking out their clothes every morning and gossiping over the newest issue of Vogue.

Synopsis:

So Bad Theyand#39;re Great profiles the most accomplished assholes from the last 100 years, marveling at how they turned bad behavior into a virtue. After all, Kanye West is certainly a brilliant musician and performer, but his antics at the Grammys (and elsewhere) are what turned him into a national obsession. Often, by simple instinct, people as varied as Walt Disney, Ernest Hemingway, Paris Hilton, Donald Trump, and Justin Bieber have been able to profit from their own worst instincts. So how do they do it? This is the question at the center of each of these 50 hilarious, loving profiles.

Synopsis:

Glamour's "Beauty Sleuth" reveals tricks of the trade to help you look fabulously high-end—in any economy.

Andrea Pomerantz Lustig has spent twenty years as a beauty editor, and her contact list is packed with the names of the most exclusive stylists in the business.In How to Look Expensive, she combines her own experience with highly coveted secrets she's learned from the experts to help readers achieve buttery highlights, luminous skin, flawless makeup, and more, all on a budget. Delivering red-carpet looks without putting readers in the red, tips include:

• How to get expensive-looking hair color at an inexpensive salon

• Superluxe DIY skincare cocktails for less than $20

• The cheap cosmetic secrets of expensive makeup artists

• Tips for princess-perfect skin on a pauper’s budget

• “Work Your Beauty Budget” sections that help you make the most of every dollar

With How to Look Expensive, every woman can afford to get gold-card gorgeous, and reap the self-confidence that comes with it.

Synopsis:

If you’ve ever wondered how to climb the social ladder with grace, how to feel confident in every situation, or even how to make a lasting impression (but not the kind that lands you on the latest “Worst Dressed List”)—Derek Blasberg is here, with quotes and secrets from all the socialites so girls everywhere can learn how to have class.
