Excerpt

From the Introduction: What No One Expects After Expecting

"Nobody ever told me how difficult it can be to bounce back after baby—not my own mother, not any magazine article, not even that last chapter in What to Expect When You're Expecting....Obviously, I knew that I'd be gaining some weight, but I just assumed that I'd squeeze it all out in the delivery room, work out a little, and then be back to strolling around SoHo in skinny jeans. A charming, though idiotic, assumption...In a twist of fate, however, it was running a celebrity magazine that taught me that looking great isn't just for the rich and the pampered, or the lucky. Being a "hot mom"—or even just a presentable one—is really about achieving one's potential. We ask that of our kids and our husbands, right? We should feel good about asking that or ourselves. With just a little help, you can get back to being the woman you were pre-pregnancy—even if you're driving a minivan!"

The best-kept secrets of Hollywood moms-revealed by the former editor of US Weekly and current Editorial Director of The Hollywood Reporter

Current editorial director of The Hollywood Reporter, Janice Min was editor in chief of Us Weekly for six years where she documented one of the biggest cultural shifts of the last decade: the making and celebration of the Hollywood Mom. Think Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum and Halle Berry—stars who proudly displayed their pregnancies, shed baby weight overnight, and helped turn the once frumpy bump industry into big business. Being a mom had become a style statement: skinny jeans replaced ‘mom jeans, Bugaboos became status symbols, and Pilates became a post-natal workout staple. Motherhood became chic, leaving regular moms across America, including Min, feeling both excited and anxious (what, one more thing to worry about?). But in How to Look Hot in a Minivan, Min dispels the idea that looking great post-pregnancy is only for the rich, pampered and lucky. In a style both smart and funny, she brings together top Hollywood experts in diet, fitness, fashion and beauty to show the reader the simplest, most cost-effective strategies for looking younger and better (without the guilt!), proving being a mom neednt be a style liability.
