Mini Review: How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World by Jordan Christy

Book Description:
In a society driven by celebutante news and myspace profiles, women of class, style and charm are hard to come by. The Audrey and Katharines of the world continue to lose their luster as thongs, rehab and outrageous behavior burn up the daily headlines. But, despite appearances, guys still want a girl they can take home to their mom, employers still like to see a tailored suit and peers still respect classy conduct. So is it possible to maintain old fashioned virtues in a modern world without looking like a starchy Amish grandma? Christy shows women how in this guide to glamorous style, professional success and true love...the classy way. 

Full of fun assignments, notable names and real-life examples, Christy offers a new look at seemingly "old fashioned" advice. She covers diet, speech, work ethic, friends, relationships, manners, makeup, and fashionable yet modest clothing, showing modern ladies how they can be beautiful, intelligent and fun while retaining values and morals.
My Thoughts:
This one should be required reading for all girls in their senior year of high school. Or maybe their freshman year. If I was still in the dating/career/living on my own world, I would have really really enjoyed reading it and could have used some of the advice majorly. 

But I am an old fart, married with a kid, so lots of the book was not applicable. Still, it was a good quick read and I'm not sorry I read it. And I really am thinking about submitting it to the Required Reading Office for high schools everywhere.
3/5 Stars
