Everyone Worth Knowing
by Lauren Weisberger
After skewering diabolical fashion editors with her hilariously knowledgeable The Devil Wears Prada, Weisberger's latest takes us behind the velvet rope and into the exclusive -- and perilous -- world of manufactured glamour produced by "event planners."

"My obsession with jeans is bordering on the unhealthy, especially my ability to justify how many pairs I currently own or 'need,'" Weisberger admits in our interview. "With very, very few exceptions (black-tie weddings being the only one that comes to mind), I wear jeans everywhere, for all occasions. I’m both proud and embarrassed to admit that I can identify brand and fit from a distance of six city blocks."
