I so enjoyed this glamorous, over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek American “It” girl romp. It gives you the vocabulary and stamping ground of the super rich tied round a charming finding Mr Right tale as an English chic breathlessly relates her adventures. Such fun.

‘Bergdorf Blondes are a thing, you know, a New York craze. Absolutely everyone wants to be one, but it’s très difficult. You wouldn’t believe the dedication it takes to be a gorgeous, flaxen-haired, dermatologically perfect New York girl with a life that’s fabulous beyond belief. Honestly, it requires a level of commitment comparable to, say, learning Hebrew or quitting cigarettes.’
a champagne bubble of a girl about town working at being a princess by day and by night on the prowl for that elusive, must-have accessory every girl simply demands: an impossibly rich fiancé.
