Synopses & Reviews
, all is fair in fashion and war.
Life at Fashionista magazine can be a real bitch. Especially when you work for one.
Vig Morgan finally worked her way out of the assistant-for-the-bitch-from-hell trenches only to get stuck in a sea of editors. But Vig isn't like the other associate editors at the aggressively hip and overwhelmingly current Fashionista magazine. For one thing, she couldn't care less which star wore which designer to which party. Sure, she's clever and witty and just as ambitious as the next over qualified underpaid underling, but she would never get drawn into a plot to depose the evil editor-in-chief. Or would she?
Jump with Vig into the choppy waters of scheming, backstabbing, free speech, flirtation and fashion, as the lackeys at the bottom of the masthead band together to take down the queen at the top, with some unexpected but not necessarily unpleasant results.
"The clever, single New York-publishing-type protagonist is standard chick lit fare, but Vig is refreshingly free from neurotic body obsessions and boyfriend angst. Messina's prose is witty and assured (she's read her Austen, her Wharton, her Noel Coward), and her novel is an irresistible frolic." Publishers Weekly
"Fashionistas has genuine style.... Forget about simply telling the boss to go to hell; Messina's accomplished something funnier and darker." Time Out New York
"Delightfully witty." New York Daily News
