Publisher Comments:

Derek Blasberg is back with more brilliant commentary on what makes a lady truly classy. With all the razor-sharp insights of Classy plus new, never-before-seen pages packed with Derek's signature wit and timeless tips, VeryClassy is the best - and the only - resource for the up-to-the minute, modern young woman.

Today's fast-maturing youth culture is confounded by a whole slew of classy conundrums. Like, "Is a funeral an acceptable place to meet a guy?" (No, the point of a funeral is to ponder how someone has touched your life, not how you hope someone is going to touch you later that night). And, "Should I wear my Wonderbra to the gym?" (No! Gyms are for exercise, not cleavage.)

Even if you're so confident, you've been attracting guys like a honey-dipped man magnet for years - VeryClassy still has something for you. This illustrated volume is packed with advice for the girl who doesn't want to be a Relationship Chameleon, the girl who understands that skinny fat is worse than just plain fat, and the girl who needs a little help discovering the silver lining of a hangover. Very Classy is the ultimate guide for discerning this generationÕs ladies from the tramps.

This book truly taught be how to be a classy young woman. The modern world today has very few intelligant, wise and excellent role models, instead we have skimpy-clothed bathing suit models, fake celebrities, and anorexic, unhappy young models as our role models. Blasberg really went into depth and explained to the young generations of girls of how to be classy, sophisticated and instead of ruining our society, he taught us girls how to be confident, strong young woman to make the world a better place, one classy young woman at a time.
