the must-have guides


 I love all kinds of books ... BUT these books are musthaves for all fashionloving-women.

Foreword by John Galliano
How tos and tips include Bella Freud, Manolo Blahnik, Stephen Jones, Gisele Bündchen, Julien MacDonald, Sam McKnight, Paula Pryke, Vivienne Westwood, Anya Hindmarch, Mrs. Burstein, Gemma Ward, Angela Lindvall, Jade Jagger, Stella McCartney, Kylie Minogue and Heidi Klum. 'How to Walk in High Heels' is for anyone who has ever tried to change a plug, toss a salad, enter a room in sling backs and leave everyone captivated, and was clearly absent when that manual was given out. This is the How To for the modern girl – you have to multitask and have the Midas touch in everything. Get the look but above all get the knowledge. This is a how to that is meant to be a friend, not a condescending assortment of rules because just like the reader the author is baffled by life… and like the reader she craves the easiest, most painless solution… and if they are stylish and fabulous and from someone iconic so much the better.
How to Walk in High Heels took the world by storm. Its flippant fashion tone, quotes and 'how tos' from industry star contributors sit against demystified jargon. Just as every girl needs to walk talk and slim in heels – every girl needs this book. Think of Ginger Rogers – she had to do all the same moves as Fred Astaire, only backwards and in heels – now its time for you to get the tips to take centre stage.

Camilla Morton is "the perfect Girl for All Seasons: a ray of sunshine to brighten up a bleak autumn's day, a touch of warmth bought to a cold winter. She is as welcome as a beautiful springtime bunch of flowers, and a refreshing tonic on a hot summer's day. That, for me, is Camilla." Manolo Blahník
