The secret diary of Vogue Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman and the real story behind the BBC ABSOLUTELY FASHION documentary. 'One of the great social diaries of our time . . . should become a classic.' Sunday Times 'Eye-popping, brilliantly candid' Evening Standard What a year for Vogue! Alexandra Shulman reveals the emotional and logistical minefield of producing the 100th anniversary issue (that 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 delicious surprise of a book . . . [Shulman is] a first rate diarist * Mail on Sunday *
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' *
