"Celebrity and fashion bloggers Tom and Lorenzo know what makes the stars tick--how they strut sidewalks like they're catwalks, weather scandals and disappointments with style, and refuse to let the rest of the world get in the way of their destinies. When TLo realized that a steady diet of celebrity imagery had done a number on a reader's self-esteem, they decided to give her the kind of advice no celebrity would openly reveal; the confidence-boosting mantras stars tell themselves all the time. "Every day, before you leave the house, " they told her, "look in the mirror and say, Everyone wants to be me or do me." From that one affirmation comes a collection of feel-good assertions borne out of the lessons learned from celebrities' supernova-bright confidence, on everything from shaping your image to choosing your costar to holding your head up high when things come crashing down. With wit and insight, TLo open the door to the celebrity world and reveal the secrets behind their image handling and style managing, from proper behavior in the wake of a cheating scandal to dressing for success when you know you're going to run into your ex--all so you can strut your stuff like the superstar you are"--
"Tom and Lorenzo began blogging in 2006 with a fansite for the show Project Runway. In response to demand from their readers, they expanded to cover celebrity fashion, couture, red carpet commentary and other TV shows and TLo (as their "bitter kittens" call them) has become a household name, reaching more than 4 million visitors a month. Thanks to their biting, insightful commentary on celebrity style, they started getting sweet missives from pear-shaped ladies who needed a boost of confidence more than fashion advice. 'Every day, before you leave the house, ' they instructed Lady Pear, after giving her some standard style recommendations, "look in the mirror and tell yourself, 'Everyone wants to be me or do me.' In this book, they explore the celebrity image and style culture with their trademark acerbic wit, from starlet meltdowns to publicity seeking pregnancies to red carpet disasters, along the way offering readers funny but inspiring takeaways and advice on understanding what consitutes great style and confident self-image: Know the venue, know the image you want to project, and sell it, sell it, sell it. Brimming with insight, humor, and takedowns of the myths of the celebrity culture, this book offers the best of the friends readers want picking out their clothes every morning and gossiping over the newest issue of Vogue"--
