Overview

Jordan Christy shares advice on how to be the most confident version of yourself, in this fully revised and updated edition derived from How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World.

Though fashions may change, certain things never go out of style—like your favorite little black dress that can take you from a business meeting to a dinner party to a night on the town. But what makes it work is not the dress, it's how you present yourself while wearing it. A woman who is polite, well spoken, gracious, charming, and thoughtful is always welcome-though such women appear to be in short supply these days! Despite the headline-grabbing antics of certain flashy celebutantes, most of us would rather have respect—for ourselves and from our family, friends, and colleagues.

In this fully revised and updated edition, you will learn how to:



  • Appear polished without sacrificing your personal style,
  • Develop skills and discover interests to boost your self-confidence,
  • Find your true friendships and make them stronger,
  • Date Mr. Right instead of hooking up with Mr. Right Now,
  • Land the perfect internship and your first job,
  • Have a fun night without the risk of a social media faux pas.
With this insightful guide you'll be loving life with style, class, and grace in no time!

How to Be a Hepburn in a Kardashian World by Jordan Christy is an upbeat etiquette book for young women. The book covers the topics of social media etiquette, self-respect, using words wisely, working hard, choosing friends well, dating, choosing clothes and make-up, having a positive self-image, and making changes in the world. What does it mean to be classy? Audrey Hepburn was classy in many regards, but she was also a chain-smoker. It seems like this book would be a better fit for a woman who already has a firm idea of what is classy and what is not, rather than an impressionable young girl. Christy’s chapter on dating holds to a very John Eldredge type of philosophy, and I hope that young girls will not read this chapter and feel like all relationships should look this way; classy relationships come in many different forms. I enjoyed reading this book, and found Christy’s advice to be positive and thoughtful. The book would be a fun beach read. In each chapter, Christy even includes a cute quiz, such as “What Kind of Bookworm Are You?” *I received this book for review*
