All hail the queen of 'tell it like it is'. Is there anyone on this planet who does not know or love Kelly Cutrone? It's like saying you've never heard of Oprah. I first saw Kelly Cutrone on an episode of The Hills and instantly wanted her to be my fairy godmother. Next she appeared on The City and then on her own show Kell on Earth. This show got me through the writing of my PhD dissertation, I get inspired to push on and get the task done.
"One of the few movers-and shakers who seems to have an enlightened grip on both the dark and light side of the business she navigates with such self-possession.... Clear, concise, to the point, and abrasively, wonderfully honest.
Kelly Cutrone has long been mentoring women on how to make it in one of the most competitive industries in the world. She has kicked people out of fashion shows, forced some of reality television's shiny stars to fire their friends, and built her own company one of the most powerful PR firms in the fashion business from the ground up. Through it all, she has refused to be anything but herself.
Kelly writes in her trademark, no-bullshit style, combining personal and professional stories to share her secrets for success without selling out. Let's face it: this is a different world than the one in which our mothers grew up, and Kelly has created a real girl's guide to making it in today's world. Offering a wake-up call to women everywhere, she challenges us to stop the dogged pursuit of the perfect life and discover who we are and what we really want. Then she shows us how to go out there and get it. Much of our culture teaches us to muzzle our inner voice and follow the crowd; Kelly enables us to stop pretending and start truly living." courtesy of Barnes and Noble.
I can't wait for her next book 'Normal Get's You Nowhere' which debuts on May 3rd 2011.
