No one has ever said it better than Coco Chanel: “A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.” I adopted this well-known statement into my life at an early age, and it most recently led me to Derek Blasberg’s debut book, Classy. As a permanent fixture in the fashion world, Derek has converted his first-hand experiences working and mixing with industry insiders to pen this how-to tome.
After years of being immersed in the style scene—jet-setting around the world, sitting front row at fashion shows and writing for top fashion mags—Blasberg is certainly well-equipped to dispense some sophisticated advice. In Classy, you will find everything from dressing for your body type to proper table manners and plenty of hilarious anecdotes in between. What I love most is that the man about town’s primary goal in writing this book is to “celebrate the ladies of the future” by introducing them to ways of standing out for their achievements, rather than their not-so-ladylike behavior. What could be classier than that? xoRZ
