Can you make yourself up in five minutes flat? Make the first move without breaking a sweat? Hang a picture without becoming unhinged? Get out of a car — or an unpleasant situation — gracefully in a short skirt? Load an iPod as effortlessly as a dishwasher? If not, international style and fashion journalist Camilla Morton can help you navigate these and more than two hundred other hazards of modern living with grace and aplomb. Much more than just a style manual or crash course in social skills, How to Walk in High Heels also illuminates the finer points of achieving better homes and gardens, tackling technophobia, climbing the career ladder, and joining the jet set.

From the practical, such as what to do when a heel breaks and how to catch a mouse, to the imaginative, such as how to enjoy karaoke and swim in sunglasses, How to Walk in High Heels overflows with useful nuggets of advice delivered in the author's inimitable witty style, accompanied by a foreword from Dior's John Galliano and a Louis Vuitton trunkful of insight from experts including:

  • Manolo Blahnik on "How to Pick a Shoe"
  • Dolce & Gabbana on "How to Get Ready in Five Minutes"
  • Gisele Bundchen on "How to Look Good in a Photo"
  • Jade Jagger on "How to Compile Your Own Soundtrack"
  • This comprehensive do-everything-better bible takes the guesswork out of flaunting your fabulousness so that you can stop teetering and start striding confidently through the obstacle course of life.

    Camilla Morton is an amazing writer, adding interesting and telling stories with each 'how-to' guide. I bought this book with intentions on learning how to walk better in high heels, but found myself using many of the guides on a daily basis! Morton is sometimes pretentious, but in sort of a hilarous way. After reading this book, I will never be caught looking bad in public again! Learn to handle everything from talking about 'highbrow art,' to fixing a broken heel at a party, to talking yourself out of a bad situation!
