Jordan Christy uses her experience of the music and media business to create a guide for girls that want to resemble Audrey Hepburn and acquire her class and charm. Jordan explains that kindness is a necessity for finding and keeping real friends, taking care of your responsibilities will get you that job promotion, and that by keeping your virginity until marriage, your boyfriend will respect you even more. These things may be hard to understand at first glance, but Jordan teaches them in a simple way and you will soon catch on. So open this book! And see how to be and act like a real woman.

In How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World, it was sometimes hard to be respectful of the author and what she was trying to teach when she talked nastily about "stupid girls". She could have went about writing the first part of the book in a different way that included all the girls that wanted to become classy, even ones with a not-so-pleasant past, but after the first 15 pages, she started to ease off a bit. I enjoyed a lot of things from this book, ones that I had to share with everyone that crossed my path, and I thank the author for using such an easily understood yet classy vocabulary. My favorite thing to read was the true short stories of how couples became married couples. It was really cute! The tips on how to dress made me feel a lot better about shopping, about how I'm not the only one with the problem of fitting into the right pair of jeans. This book really taught me how to become more of a graceful and respected, classy young adult. I recommend every teenage girl to read it before that first date or first job interview!

An easy read and I should anticipate it to be judgemental but some of the things the authors states is completely out of line. For half of the book I was completely pissed at the author to still have 50's stereotypical mindset. She calls herself a feminist but do things that are against "feminism" making her a hypocrite, shallow human being, and other words she'll consider too "Paris". Waste of money DO NOT BUY!!!!

    more from this reviewer

    Excellent advice

    Overpriced for the money. Only 138 pages on my nook. Too much celebrity name dropping and quotations for my taste. If we're not to care about celebrities or even popular opinion, then why all the quotes? Better to affirm your advice with concrete examples than nice-girl celebrity quotes. Otherwise, a commonsense book explaining that classic virtues never go out of style. Nice gift for a teenage girl or collegiate woman.

    Good light read but for younger crowd.

    I took this book with me along with another along the same genre on vacation. This one is geared to a bit younger crowd than my other Hepburn pick. If you are over 23 pass on this one. If you are giving to a teen or young adult, it is very readable but can be a bit on the preachy side. I recommend "What Would Audrey Do?" instead of if you must choose.
