About the Author:

Camilla Morton is a London-based fashion writer and the author of the international bestseller How to Walk in High Heels, which has been translated into twenty languages worldwide. She was the runway reporter for U.K. Vogue.com, covering all international and couture collections. Morton has collaborated with several designers and written for magazines, newspapers and blogs, including Time magazine's "Style and Design," SHOWStudio, the Wall Street Journal's "Off Duty" section, and Harper's Bazaar in both the U.S. and the U.K. This is her fifth book.

Diane von FUrstenberg arrived in New York in 1970 with a suitcase full of her iconic wrap dresses and changed the way women dressed. DVF has pioneered fashion and business, built and sold a cosmetics company and founded a publishing house, and she supports many philanthropic causes—especially for women and the environment. DVF returned from a hiatus to fashion in 1997, relaunching the signature wrap to international acclaim. In 2005 the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awarded her a Lifetime Achievement Award, and the following year named her as the Council President.

From Publishers Weekly:

Despite a little help from friends in high fashion places, including a foreword written by Manolo Blahnik, Morton's follow-up to her debut book How to Walk in High Heels is an unsuccessful pastiche of historical facts, shoe styles, recipes and juxtaposing tips like How to be A-list and How to say something meaningful. The book is arranged in calendar form, with each month including cultural tips and information and a Muse of the Month profile of famous women like Jane Austen and Cleopatra. While trying to appeal to both sides of the Atlantic, the London writer misses the mark by trying too hard to be all-inclusive, especially where holidays are concerned. The sheer volume of historical facts—including when Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross, when Disneyland opened in America and when Mata Hari was born—seem like they were compiled purely to fill in the bits between international dispatches from famous fashionistas like Giorgio Armani and Diane von Furstenberg and are out of place next to a section titled How to moonwalk the Michael Jackson way.
