Following British Vogue Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman's decision to step down from fashion's most visible post, her diary - published lasy year - of helming the magazine's 100th issue offers even more compelling reading.

Discover the real story behind the BBC TV Absolutely Fashion documentary. Alexandra Shulman reveals the emotional and logistical minefield of producing the 100th anniversary issue (the Duchess of Cambridge cover surprise), organizing the star-studded Vogue 100 Gala, working with designers from Victoria Beckham to Karl Lagerfeld and contributors from David Bailey to Alexa Chung - all under the continual scrutiny of a television documentary crew. But narrowly-contained domestic chaos hovers - spontaneous combustion in the kitchen, a temperamental boiler and having to send bin day reminders all the way from Milan fashion week.

For anyone who wants to know what the life of a fashion magazine editor is really like, or for any woman who loves her job, this is a rich, honest and sharply observed account of a year lived at the centre of British fashion and culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the great social diaries of our time . . . should become a classic. * Sunday Times *
Eye-popping, brilliantly candid. * Evening Standard *
Shulman is particularly good on insightful character sketches . . . she is also happy to reveal occasional flashes of her own character and insecurities. * Sunday Express *
Completely compelling . . . fascinating . . . refreshingly unfiltered . . . reminds you what a good writer she is. * GQ *
[Shulman] writes surprisingly frankly . . . a funny, pacy book. -- Hadley Freeman * Guardian *
Candid, introspective, generous and witty -- Nicky Haslam * Spectator *
A witty corrective to the BBC's rather flaccid documentary . . . Shulman's skill for casual self-deprecation and the unfiltered wry aside offer a far more nuanced insight into the mammoth task of managing brand Vogue. * Financial Times, `Best Books of 2016' *
