About the Book

Be ready the next time the spotlight is on you!She's interviewed "glamazons," watched stars shine (Sharon Stone in a Gap T-shirt at the Oscars) and bomb (Jennifer Aniston in dreadlocks, Cher in an Egyptian headdress), and witnessed many a celebrity rise to the top only to come crashing down a mere year later. And she's both reveled in kudos and despaired over criticism of herself.As the daughter of Joan Rivers and with years of face time with the Hollywood elite, Melissa has learned far more than your average person about what it takes to be a star--not just on the red carpet, but in life. For the first time, she shares the lessons she's learned along the way and teaches you how to embrace your big moments, be it a graduation, a first date, a job interview, a prom, or a wedding. Pulling from inspirational and humorous tales from her probing chats with red-carpet royalty and episodes in her own life, she lays out nine essential rules to seize momentous times with graciousness, fun, preparedness, confidence--and, of course, drop-dead gorgeous style that flatters you. (Hint: It's not always the top designer brand that'll scream stardom.) The walk down the red carpet, as Rivers so colorfully relates, can teach us all some basic but essential lessons in fashion and in life.With miles of red carpet under her belt, Melissa Rivers has seen it all, from the biggest oops! moments to those unforgettable times when a star truly did shine. She knows exactly what it takes to be a star--both on the red carpet and in life.Based on her insider knowledge and her personal experience under Hollywood's glare, Melissa shares tips and techniques for embracing your momentous times and being at your best when the focus is on you, including:• The simple trick to being the hit of every party• How to escape from a date that's become a train wreck• The celebrity secret to looking radiant, rain or shine• A success strategy that beats pure talent every time• The one rule about people even the superstars are afraid to break• How to apologize or run into your ex and keep your coolFrom the Hardcover edition.
