How To Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World: The Art of Living with Style, Class, and Grace
By: Jordan Christy
Genres: Non-fiction, Classy Chic-Lit, and Self-Help.
Whether it's a tube top, binge-eating, or the latest red carpet scandal, daily life seems to hone in one fact: classiness isn't a top priority. Now more than ever, our society is becoming a lazy cesspool of dumb-downed speech and low standards.
In How To Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World: The Art of Living with Style, Class, and Grace, Jordan Christy outlines these and other modern phenomenons and how to beat them. With an energetic, conversational style she candidly points out where we go wrong, something she calls 'Stupid Girl' behavior. She doesn't just shake her head at tasteless actions, however; she tells you how to avoid them.
Covering everything from dressing, etiquette, make-up application and the classy way to get a guy, this book is sure to inspire. One of my favorite aspects of the book is the sense of legacy Christy creates. She talks about how we should do our very best to be intelligent, modern, classy women because of the women who've come before us. Using examples like Elanor Roosevelt, Audrey Hepburn, and Florence Nightangle, Christy points out that we shouldn't throw away everything these women fought for. Throughout history, women have worked to make a better world, and our 'dumbing-down' just insults their hard work.
In addition to the text, Christy adds in quotes, recipes, and quizzes. Not to mention the adorable cover! Just carrying this book will instantly make you feel more classy. :)
Even if you already consider yourself relatively classy, this book will leave you energized and full of purpose. How To Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World is a quick read (it only took me two days), perfect for toting around while out in the summer sun. If you're ready for some old-fashioned values and a refreshing outlook, definitely pick up this book!
