It's by former Elle Beauty Editor, Jean Godfrey-June. It's part memoir, part how to and sort of Devil Wears Prada in its dish. I learned that the only thing to get rid of the "monkey lines" by the mouth is to literally lift the skin higher with terrible cheek implants and that's why people get them.
She had a few stories almost written like blind items including a designer who's a scat freak who put a "note of human excrement" in his cologne. I still wonder who that is.
The Elle staff sounded like total freaks too.
