Review

'Intimate and honest, this book provides tips on everything from dating to decorating...Stuffed with jolly good bits' Heat 'Need advice? Make Whitney your first Port of call' Bliss 'She's the chic-est fashion cupboard export, ever. Now Whit's working her own killer catwalk credentials in True Whit.' Dare

From the Back Cover

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.

I saw Whitney on the Chelsea Handler show and she made the book seem pretty cute, so I blindly pre-ordered on my Kindle instead of sampling it when it came out. I was a fan of The Hills and The City, so I figured if anything there would be anecdotes that I remembered from the shows. Sadly, I cannot get into this book...at all. If you are a younger girl (I'm 29), you might find some of her tidbits helpful, but to me it is recycled and/or generic information (what to keep in your pantry, healthy snacks, a list of the books and movies she has in her apartment, making a party playlist)...so random. Half the pages had me rolling my eyes until I just started skipping through hoping to find something I actually wanted to read. I like Whitney a lot, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing this book.

I'm a fan of Whit and a few years younger than she is so I thought her advice could apply to me. As another reviewer mentioned, this is pretty much Whitney's version of Lauren Conrad Style, but it covers more ground than Lauren's. Mostly she talks about creating/finding your own personal style and making it work, but she also gives tips on decorating your apartment, healthy snacks she likes, working in the real world, and throwing a party. She also gives you a glimpse into her life - she uses pictures of her apartment to illustrate what she's talking about and tells stories about her experiences to back up her points. There's no Hills/City inside info, although she references scenes from the shows occasionally.

The bottom line is if you like Whitney and are looking for some fun personal style ideas and advice, you'll like this book. It's a little silly (e.g. the snapshot of her favorite movies), but it was a fun read, and I picked up a few tidbits here and there. If you're not already a Whitney fan/don't know who she is, then you probably won't get much out of this book.

Has a lot of pictures and wardrobe advice, but don't expect any sort of biography or deets on the Hills or the City. Good for Wardrobe advice, and had a good chapter on relationships. Otherwise, all about Wardrobes.

I watched The Hills, The City, so I thought this could be a nice style book.

My biggest issue is: when I'm reading it I can't stop thinking how someone who worked at Vogue magazine approved such a bad job when "Photoshoping" her own pictures.

It's really poorly produced, we can see backgrounds that were not properly removed, weird hair shapes because of that... I just expected a higher quality product. I wonder if Lisa Lowe and Kelly Coutrone approved this.

In my opinion, she could have taken it more seriously and paid more attention to details.

This is a book for Whitney fans. It is markedet as a life-guide, I am not sure if actually qualifies.. I agree with previous commenters in that the book has some odd sections (such as her listing her movies), but I disagree with the ones that say this is Whitney's version of Lauren Conrad Style. This book is not all about fashion tips, do's and dont's and it's not claiming to be. It does cover it, although much more shallow then Lauren Conrad's style, and it also covers entertaining, interior design, confidence.. all through the eyes of a twenty something year old, who btw isn't claiming to be an expert just sharing her views. For Whitney fans I imagine it's even fun to know what kind of movies she watch. I actullay become a bigger Whitney fan after reading the book ( I just picked it up on a complete whim because it was a bargain) and it made me happy. It inspired me, just like a magazine would. Not everything has to be pulitzer material, somethings - like this book - can be just for fun!

I don't know what I thought this book was gonna be about even after reading the other reviews about it, call it me being a "Whit Porter" fan throughout the year thanks to "THe Hills" and "The City" I like her professional side she showed on t.v so I though perhaps this books would be a brief bio into her life with a few tips on how to dress professionally and the like, and it kind of is but isn't. It's like a rehashed conversation with your best friend on a Saturday afternoon about a break up with her boyfriend that you already heard a million times and the outcome in the end is still the same. It seems like this book was more of a venting session for her than a book about style or true whit you could probably find more tips on make up, clothing, and fashion attire out of a "Glamour" or "Vogue" magazine heck Lauren Conrad's self help fashion books had more personality and that's saying something.
