From the Back Cover:

Teen runaway, supermodel, and actress Carré Otis found herself in the public eye from a very tender age. By the time she was twenty, millions of people had already gazed at provocative images of her in magazine and billboard ads from Guess and Calvin Klein, on the pages of Playboy and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and on posters for the controversial film Wild Orchid, with her soon-to-be husband Mickey Rourke. Their troubled marriage was widely reported in the media, as were Carré's struggles with drugs and a particularly brutal eating disorder. But simply because we've seen someone naked on the page or exposed on the screen or in the tabloids doesn't mean we know who that person really is.

In Beauty, Disrupted, Carré Otis confronts her complex past fearlessly and with unrelenting candor. The result is a narrative of success, despair, and ultimate triumph over sexual exploitation and our cultural obsession with appearance—a narrative of beauty disrupted, reclaimed, and made more radiant through self-acceptance, inner peace, and the love of family.

About the Author:

As a supermodel, Carré Otis has appeared on the covers of Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan, and has worked with many of the world's greatest fashion photographers. She has appeared on nationally televised programs, offering her unique insight into the business of beauty and the high price it demands. Carré lives in Colorado with her husband and two daughters.
