    1. Honestly, it feels like this same book is reprinted every two years or so it s always the same white, thin, famous ladies, the same advice, the same pictures It is inconceivable to me that in the future year of 2017 people are still getting away with writing about Jackie Kennedy as a style icon when Aurora James exists To quote Andre Leon Talley, IT S A FAMINE OF BEAUTY, HONEY MY EYES ARE STARVING FOR BEAUTY.
