OrangeReviewStarAmber Green works at Smith's, an upscale London boutique. When stylist to the stars Mona Armstrong comes in for a private showing, a mishap on Amber's part, seen as a genius idea by Mona, results in Amber's going to work as Mona's assistant during awards season. While working with a film crew, jetting between London and Los Angeles, toting suitcases full of designer clothes, meeting a lovable micro-pig, and more, Amber learns if she has what it takes to keep up in the world of fashion. Fashion editor Nixon (HELLO! magazine) pulls from real-life experience to create a work guaranteed to turn heads quicker than the paparazzi can snap a pic. With relatable characters, humor, romance (times two), and enough gossip to fill Page Six, this novel will keep readers riveted.
VERDICT This first title in a projected series is on par with Lauren Weisberger's The Devil Wears Prada and Sophie Kinsella's "Shopaholic" series. Perfect for those seeking a peek at the world of celebrity fashion; savvy readers will enjoy guessing after which stars the characters are modeled.
