Oh dear I'd so looked forward to this book Unfortunately it's just endless name dropping rehashing his very limited social life which consists of descriptions of his hand me down outfits and freebies He repeats himself often his marvellous southern manners etcTwo stars because who can resist Anna Wintour gossip I think he'll regret this book because it's all so petty they had a professional relationship which he mistook for genuine friendshipI shall re read Alexandra Shulman's marvellous book on Vogue instead

This book was an eye opener It's a detailed look at the world where appearance matters than anything where individual egos dictate the play where huge amounts of money are spent and then boasted about It's straight from the world of Donald TrumpI'm a scientist; i move in a world where people make judgements on evidence and priorities are set by how useful one's efforts will be So to look at this world where only appearance matters was an eye opener I read all the way through because it was rather like reading from an anthropologist who'd discovered a world where heroism consisted in putting on shoes with nine inch heels falling off them and putting oneself back on display I now feel as if I've eaten a sugar sandwich dipped in glucose and decorated to within an inch of its lifeI'm glad I read it in an outsider looking in way of thinking but no please
