Real Gorgeous: The Truth About Body and Beauty
By Kaz Cooke
Real Gorgeous has the facts about fashion fibs and diet porkies – and the truth about push ups, push-up bras and the great cellulite scam.
Take it from Kaz Cooke: “There are millions of gorgeous body shapes. Yours is one of them. Dieting doesn’t work. Your thighs are pretty cute. Exercise should be fun not duty. Cheap cosmetics can be as good as expensive ones. Advertising lies. Plastic surgery sucks. Modelling can be miserable. You can recover from an eating disorder. You can read magazines and watch television critically. You can fight the Body Police.”
At last, here is a book that tells you how to be friends with your body. Real Gorgeous is a big, funny, reassuring read about fashion fibs and diet myths—and the truth about, among other things, push-ups, push-up bras, and the great cellulite scam. It is meticulously researched and sensible, but it avoids impenetrable theory and instead embraces the fun of clothes, makeup, and life in general.
