BOOK TO KNOW: How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World

BOOK TO KNOW: How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World fashion

Author Jordan Christy campaigns for a new type of “It Girl” in her new book of advice, How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World. All of you who voted Anne Hathaway in our Quest yesterday can rejoice: this new It-Girl is “successful, stylish, smart” with “classic ideals and values” making her more like Anne then Megan Fox. Christy labels this current It-Girls as “stupid girls” and shares her encounters with them, incase your middle/high school experience and the current state of Lindsay Lohan infested tabloids wasn’t enough of a hint not to be like them. Christy does well and refrains from just bashing, her book is filled with tips how to dress, act and have fun so you can find what every smart girl wants: love, happiness and success. It all sounds a bit cliche on the surface and Christy’s book may sound like common sense to some of you but it’s a fast changing world anyone who has style, class and grace figured out in these tough times is a good friend to have.

Christy’s book features gimmicks such as the “Hepburn Guide to Self Respect Quiz”, meant to tell you what your image says about you but can also be useful in telling your friends that they are a little too Paris-esque for your liking (no one wants to be friends with a slutty camera whore). Christy suggests that we read the dictionary during Lost commercials, which seems a bit extreme to me but she did succeed in making me appreciate Mrs. Hepburn a little more. And a little extra motivation for all us working girls: Madonna used to be a Dunkin Donuts employee.

So, whether you read this book for its dating tips (an unexpected perk I especially enjoyed) or as advice how to tell your BFF she’s too much of a Hilton to stick with, or to just better yourself in general you should read it. Ps: This is also a good way not to end up on ourĀ Street Zeros column.
