Recommended for: no one really!
Read in March, 2008

I got the impression that this was meant to be an expose on the fashion industry but the author spun it into fiction to avoid lawsuits. The characters weren't developed very much and the same cliches repeated over and over again. Models don't mind being naked in front of people. Everyone snorts coke all the time, even in the morning. Kate Moss did something wacky, but it's probably just a rumor. Blah. I thought the writing was sloppy. She gave a few lines of dialogue followed by a long-winded explanation of something to do with the industry. Very formulaic and not as fun as I expected it to be. Oh well. For light trashy reading it served the purpose for a few days.
