I bought this book thinking it was, as it said, an inside look into the world of fashion and vogue. It's really not. It's more an autobiography of whoever this woman is with endless name dropping along with details of the fabulous trips she had around the world eating fabulous food with fabulous people. She's an engaging writer (or has an excellent editor) so it was easy to read and keep reading, but I was disappointed that it was more about her than anything else.

This book was certainly an A+ book for anyone interested in working in the fashion industry. It had insight into her own entertaining life, as well as her journey through getting started at Vogue. I absolutely loved it, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fashion industry based book that is entertaining and not just factual.

This “tell-all” really is not a tell-all for those who are looking for an insider look of Vogue magazine. It starts off with very good intentions – the author was fired from her job as lead editor of Vogue – and then reflects on her initial employment and rise to power within the high-fashion, magazine industry. But after some in-site, the author tends to drop names, discuss the fabulous places she has visited, the chic people and their chic way of dressing (the word chic seems to be an every other sentence), essentially it is about her incredible and fabulous lifestyle. I wish it were more than just Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Paris, Milan, fashion week. But it isn’t and I felt the book was shallow, like jump from the family roof into a kiddie pool shallow. I would have wanted the author to be a little more in depth with the magazine industry. How cutthroat, fast-faced, and competitive the magazine industry is; especially the fashion industry part of it. I would have loved to see the author discuss the day to day functions of hiring models, photographers, picking shoot locations, the expenses involved when creating a monthly magazine, and the difficulties of putting it all together. I would love to have read about the difficulties of writing new material month after month for an Australian magazine that is not given the same respect as its sister magazines in Paris, and Italy. I feel as the author intended to, but didn’t go in that direction, instead, preferring to go into the famous and fabulous part of the business. Which, frankly, is not all that fabulous. I felt the majority of the people discussed were very two-dimensional, what the subjects wore was more important than the subjects value to the industry.

I am someone who never read books on fashion. I liked it because it gives a honest glimpse on fashion industry. I think it's an interesting and a light read.

Vogue is probably the most recognized fashion magazine in the world, and Clements' memoir is a fascinating behind the scenes account of her time at Vogue. Clements is down to earth and relatable as a narrator - she starts by answering phones at the front desk of Vogue Australia and ends up as editor in chief of the publication years later. During this time she travels around the world, meets designers and celebrities globally and works hard to bring her vision of fashion to the reader. When she writes about her enviable experiences, she never seems to lose sight of how fortunate she is to be in her position and the work it took to get there. I found this a fun and light read for those interested in fashion.
