Overview

Whitney Port shares personal stories, beauty and fitness secrets, and tried-and-true advice on everything girls need to know to start their lives out with style

Fashion trendsetter, MTV reality star, and clothing designer Whitney Port learned to navigate her new independent life in New York with grace, style, and a sense of humor. From backstabbing coworkers and bitchy bosses to long-distance boyfriends and a daring new career in fashion, Whitney managed to handle it all. Intimate and honest, Whitney opens up about everything from fashion and beauty to romance and careers. She dishes on: her experiences working at Teen Vogue, People's Revolution, and Diane von Furstenberg; finding love and trying to make it work; and life in front of the cameras.

Whitney shares her unique style philosophy, including when to break the rules, her family's influence on her sense of style, and her perfect outfits for any occasion—from meeting your guy's parents to wowing an interviewer for a job. Whitney also details what young women really want to know, like what to eat when the mid-afternoon munchies strike, how to throw an impromptu party, and how to hide a hangover.

With hundreds of photos and chock-full of must-have lists and style favorites, this colorful scrapbook features pics from Whitney's personal photo albums and from major moments in her life, including on the runway, at her private birthday bash, and out on the town with friends. And for the first time, Whitney shares the true reality of an emerging fashion designer, highlighting her creative process, sketches, and fabrics.

Through personal stories and private snapshots, fans will get to see a side of her that the cameras don't capture. This is Whitney Port revealed.

    Shockingly Pretty Amazing

    Of all The Hills girls, I always admired Whitney's style and poise the most. I watched the show and The City occasionally, but I wouldn't call myself a HUGE fan, just something I watched when I was bored.I'm obsessed with beauty and style books, and I'm always curious about the ones written by celebrities. I've looked over the ones from Lauren Conrad, Kimora Lee, Carmen Electra, and even some Playmates who came out with a style book. I was left a little disappointed with all of these. True White, however, gave me what I felt was lacking in the others. It's much more detailed instead of a list of general tips. She gives brand names, even. I'm 25, and despite having a very different upbringing that Miss Port, I found her very, very relatable! Her job tips were great, and I loved how she used real experiences. One of the strongest chapters in the book was definitely the one on home decor and organization. I'm very, very impressed by the entire book. Great job, Whitney!

    I loved this book!!! I found it to be helpful as well as inspira

    I loved this book!!! I found it to be helpful as well as inspirational. I've never followed Whitney Port till now. I hadn't even heard of her till I saw her on America's Next Top Model Cycle 14. But after reading this I can say I'm definitely a fan and I think she's a great role model for any young girl wanting to get in on the fashion business.
