It seems like nowadays every celebrity is now becoming an author. So it's hard to fish out what books are beneficial to read and which ones you should skip out on. Below are 3 books that in my opinion are worth reading.
1. If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You. By Kelly Cutrone
When you hear the name Kelly Cutrone, I know I automatically think People’s Revolution and The Hills. When I found out that Kelly has written two books I was super excited. She is someone that I look up to in this business. In this book she talks about how her dream to work in Public Relations came about, and how she made a name for herself in the communications and fashion industry. It is a real eye-opener to see how cutthroat the industry is.
2. Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty & Everything Glamour by Rachel Zoe
Rachel Zoe has definitely become a household name; from her many celebrity clients to her television show The Rachel Zoe projects. Her style is a style that I wish I could emulate. She always looks absolutely flawless. So when this book came out, it was a must for me to pick up. In this book Rachel shares her style tips with everyone. My favorite chapter in the book is Jet Set; where Rachel lends you her stylist tips on how to pack for a trip, and what exactly is necessary.
3. Style by Lauren Conrad
Nowadays every girl wants to be like Lauren Conrad. From her start on Laguna Beach, to The Hills, and now seeing her being a fashion designer, what girl doesn’t want to have that life. When Lauren came out with this book I couldn’t wait to pick it up. Her style is one that I love, if it wasn’t for her side braid, I don’t know what I would do with my unruly bangs in the summer days. In this book Lauren gives us readers insight to all the fashion aspects, from the actual fashion, to hair and makeup. There are in-depth details for many different styles which is my absolute favorite.
