‘What he gives us, ultimately, is a circus the likes of which, given present circumstances, we may never see again. My advice is to do as I did: apply a good squirt of Fracas to your wrists, and sit back and enjoy the lunatic ride’ Observer, Book of the Week
‘Ideal reading material for anyone who found The Devil Wears Prada addictive but now needs a stronger hit. It is brimful of toxic behaviour and noxious values, which makes it perfect consolation, too, for lockdown’ Daily Telegraph

He has published several illustrated works, including Little Black Dress, ALT: 365, and Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style.

I'm a scientist; i move in a world where people make judgements on evidence, and priorities are set by how useful one's efforts will be. So to look at this world where *only* appearance matters was an eye-opener. I read all the way through, because it was rather like reading from an anthropologist who'd discovered a world where heroism consisted in putting on shoes with nine inch heels, falling off them, and putting oneself back on display. I now feel as if I've eaten a sugar sandwich dipped in glucose and decorated to within an inch of its life.
I'm glad I read it, in an outsider-looking-in way of thinking, but no more, please.
Two stars because who can resist Anna Wintour gossip. I think he'll regret this book, because it's all so petty, they had a professional relationship, which he mistook for genuine friendship.
I shall re read Alexandra Shulman's marvellous book on Vogue instead.
If you love fashion, gossip and drama it is a great book for you.
